You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Also see below for all the Building Societies around Your Postcode with their contact details. Just click through to go to a map, street views, reviews and a link to their own websites.

Good dental technicians doing the work from what I've experianced but they seem to use here as a stepping stone and its usually someone new at your next 6 monthly appointment.. Will come back and give it another star or 2 whenever they train their reception staff some customer service skills.

Dentist Elizabeth Devlin was a pleasure to go to. She was so pleasant and put me at ease immediately. I found her to be incredibly professional and accomplished at her job, and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Brewers Fayre Harbour (Carrickfergus)

Alexander Pier, Carrickfergus BT38 8BE, UK – 028 9335 6420

Great play area for kids while you sit and catch up with friends. Children can be a bit rough so sitting as close to the play area is necessary. Food has got so much better, especially the burgers.

Inexpensive restaurant connected to a Premier Inn. Good service and the food is of a good standard. The menu is generic to other Brewers Fayres but here it is prepared well. The staff are friendly and attentive. The is also a good atmosphere within the bar and restaurant.

Nursery and Preschools

Greengables Preschool

Thomas St, Carrickfergus BT38 8AL, UK – 028 9336 0928

My son did a year here before school, he absolutely loved it! The leaders are brilliant. Kind and caring and helpful when your child is having an off day! They have an outside play area, with plenty of stuff to entertain them. It's inside Carrickfergus Central Primary school so it's great if you child is going to Central as they are already used to the environment and have seen the staff on a regular basis.

I sent both my daughters here and they loved it! All the leaders were so kind and just adore all the kids. I have never felt so at ease when leaving my children with other people. Fantastic nursery all round and would highly recommend to everybody.
