Review

“Red is the rose that in yonder garden grows, fair is the lily of the valley…” T. Makem.

Take a trip through time, and experience an extraordinary journey into the living past with a visit to the Ulster Folk Museum, situated in Cultra, Northern Ireland. Combining the past with the present, in an effort to encourage and support and shape the future, visitors can participate and conserve everyday skills, customs and traditions that have been passed down through many generations in Ulster. There are daily craft demonstrations which include; blacksmithing and basket weaving, and this living history museum allows you to explore thatched cottages, shops, farms and schools from over 100 years ago. Discover both town and countryside, and get to know the well informed costumed locals, who are extremely friendly and informative. Spend some time in the glorious parkland, and say hello to the farm animals, then enjoy a browse around the gift shop and take a break in the lovely tearoom.
