About Us

    About Mulhollands Funeral Directors

    Mulhollands Funeral Directors has been looking after families in the local community for over 55 years in both Carrickfergus and Larne. In June 2012 our Carrickfergus funeral home began an extensive refurbishment of the premises to provide a more modern funeral home with full disabled access, private restrooms, a courtyard and office space.

    In 2016 our Larne funeral home also saw a refurbishment of the entire premises. Both funeral homes still offer the same level of care and professionalism that the communities have not only come to expect, but deserve. 

    The teams at our Carrickfergus and Larne funeral homes will provide advice at every stage of the funeral planning process, and will arrange an individual and unique funeral to help you celebrate the life of your loved one. We have our own service venue on-site. 

    Here at Mulhollands Funeral Directors we also offer an affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice, so that you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance. This will protect your family from rising costs and remove uncertainty about your wishes.

    If you would like to talk to us about planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, please come and see us in any of our funeral homes, or if you’d rather we can arrange a home visit. We’re also available 24 hours a day on the phone so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local funeral home.

    Meet the Team

    Joanne Arkins

    Diary Manager

    Joanne has been at Mulhollands Funeral Directors since May 2020. She has been in the industry for over 5 years and previously came from a administrative background.

    She said: “It is a privilege for me to be able to support families during such a difficult time in their lives and to guide them as they plan the final journey for their loved one.
    I always strive to provide a caring and compassionate service and conduct all my arrangements with great care and dignity.
    It is important for me to maintain our reputation within the local community and to provide a professional and respectful service during such an emotional and difficult time.”

    Peter Mulholland

    Management Team Advisor

    I’m a very proud Carrickfergus man having been born in the then Cottage Hospital in the early 1950s and grow up in Sunnylands. My late father Robert (Bob) Mulholland started our family business in 1966 and I officially joined the company a few years later. We have been privileged to have served families throughout Carrickfergus and the East Antrim area fifty five years later Mulhollands continue to support bereaved families in their time of greatest need.

    Many local people will still comment on the years we provided taxis, coach hirer and haulage services. However in the mid seventies we decided to concentrate our efforts in the Funeral Directing and Wedding Limousine hirer side of the business.
    It was in 1982 we purchased our excising premises in Irish Quarter South Carrickfergus and developed in into a modern Funeral Home which includes private rest rooms and office accommodation.

    From a family perspective the most significant development took place in 1988 when the business was sold to Funeral Services Northern Ireland. This lead to many changes but I believe the high standards and ethos laid down by my father are still being maintained ~ “Caring is at the heart of our approach”.

    I looked on it as a great honour and privilege to serve so many families over fifty years. Although I retired in 2017 I have recently agreed to assist and support the management team and staff at Mulhollands in an advisory role. It’s nice to serve my community again even in this small but important way.


    Funeral Arranger

    I’ve been employed in the Funeral profession for six years. This new career path followed a work background in the Civil Service, followed by an administerial role in the Aerospace industry.
    After qualifying as a Counsellor, I decided to pursue a career which was more person centred and compassionate with others.
    Working in the Funeral profession alongside team colleagues to help families arrange a funeral for their loved ones is an honour and privilege.
