What a fab day we had at the ulster american folk park. The weather was great, all the staff were very helpful, informative and dressed according to the old days. We even got to be part of 2 enactment weddings. The park was all on the flat and well worth the visit.

The Village has been re-created so well. Our guide was nice. Even tho it rained during the entire tour he did not hurry us along or avoid our questions. We loved seeing inside of these homes presented as they were in this era.

Well worth a visit, a fascinating insight into the life of Irish emigres on both sides of the Atlantic. Most of the locations had staff who were able to provide us with a wealth of background. We even had some home made soda bread in one house. The example of an actual ship of the type which brought people to... More
