During our recent holiday in Ulster we visited the Folk Park. It was a fantastic day out for us, we walked the whole park with our 4yr old daughter and spend a very pleasant 3 hours touring the park. It it very well laid out and the stories from the staff were very good. It's a great family day out... More

I had visited here a few times as a child both with family and as part of a school trip, but that was quite a few years ago. I went today with 3 children and we were all very impressed and will definitely go back. You could easily spend the whole day there.

I wasn't really sure what to expect but we had been told by friends the park was well worth a visit. They weren't wrong. I won't spoil the surprise but the stories told as you travel throughout the park are extremely well done...I love the way you leave Irish soil and arrive on American shores...we were there on a hot...

There's over forty restored buildings in this incredibly detailed and fascinating museum. You could well take all day walking round it. An impressive Visitors' Centre sets you up with good toilet and restaurant facilities. The Emigrants Exhibition fills you full of facts so you can understand the trials and tribulations of the lives you are about to see. The scale... More

The recreated buildings were fascinating, the costumed guides really make it special! Interesting souvenirs available in the shop.

Have visited here twice now and both times was great it's so good how you get to here stories of the buildings and the people or taste the homemade bread. It's very good value for money and very educational but fun for the children. The restaurant could do with a bit more choice but the food was good.

This has got to be a national treasure for Ireland. The actors were brilliant and bring the park to life. So many interesting facts. Would highly recommend. Restaurant was good too. Very nice soup.

We had such a great day here that I wanted to share with you.The park is well laid out with lots to see. We went with 2 4 year olds and a 2yr old so walking long distances wasn't an option. We found all the properties close enough together to keep everyone going. The staff were totally engaging and full... More

This was a perfect stop for us since my husband’s great grandmother emigrated to the USA from a town very near this site (Dunganon, County Tyrone). The indoor part of the tour included photos, video, recreations, artifacts and text information of life in Ireland, emigration before and after the famine and stories of individuals & families, some successful and some...

We spent practically all day here, granted we had young kids so the pace was slow but they loved it. We were there early so beat the bus loads of tourists. We had lunch in the cafe which was just about all home made and not expensive. Lots of walking involved but as you are outside it was great. Kids... More
