  • Had a smashing day here, great staff and lots to keep the kids occupied.
  • We spent almost a full day here with the kids (early teens). The folk park is very interesting and provides a nice journey experience from Ulster to the new world. Highly recommended.
  • Really good day out for all ages.
  • You will learn here is very much about Irish history during the famine. You walk into an open air museum along the Irish past to a America. During this walk you also create knowledge with a ship where people used to with it went to America, and sees the bitter conditions on board. Take a look in the past.
