All about us

Mulhollands of Carrickfergus has been looking after families of the local community for over 45 years. The business was founded by local Bob Mulholland in 1966. Bob’s son, Peter, is still active within the business and is known throughout the local community.

The funeral home was originally based on Lancasterian Street in Carrickfergus, which offered Bob and Peter the opportunity to support local families in the Carrickfergus and East Antrim area. The premises were originally a motor vehicle dealership and petrol station and, after several months of redevelopment by the Mulholland family, they were opened providing accommodation, a flower shop, memorial mason, private rest rooms, a funeral service room, and garaging facilities.

“Over the last 45 years Peter has seen many changes in the funeral business from the changes in the style of vehicles, to the variety of services that we now provide.”

Mulhollands of Carrickfergus continues to serve the people of Carrickfergus and surrounding areas.

In June 2012, Mulhollands of Carrickfergus 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. We are proud to provide the highest levels of professional and caring support to families in their time of need.


Mulhollands of Larne was established over 45 years ago formerly known as McConnell’s Funeral Services.

Peter Mulholland, who with his father Bob, founded Mulhollands of Carrickfergus in 1966, extending out to the Larne area in later years, is still active within the business.

Three years ago Mulhollands of Larne saw a refurbishment of the entire premises while still offering the same level of care and professionalism that the citizens of Larne have not only come to expect but deserve.

“After 45 years the funeral home still operates from the same premises having become something of an institution in the town.”

Our current team at Mulhollands of Larne are very proud of our heritage continuing to provide a high quality and professional service to families in their time of need.

“Our motto ‘Caring is at the Heart of Our Approach’ is embedded in everything we do.”

As well as caring for our families, Mulhollands of Carrickfergus has an ethos of ‘putting something back into the community’. We are proud to support local charitable projects and provide relevant training to those in the care sector.
