This was an enjoyable and education experience for all. The staff were enthusiastic and very politer and friendly. The park itself was beautiful. It was lovely to be able to explore the old buildings and see authentic furniture etc inside them. It was also nice to ear the staff talk about the section they were in and give a great... More

Very reasonable admission price for a great day out. Education whilst enjoying yourself. The park is well laid out and I had no trouble at all getting round on my mobility scooter (perhaps a few judders on the cobbled street!!) The guides were all well versed in their topic and very happy to have a chat. We even had the... More

Great day out with lots to do and see. Kids even got a go at doing the bellows with the farrier. Very well laid out and thought out. Great value for money

We came here on a visit to Ireland last year - sadly on a Monday when the museum is closed, this year we were more organised and checked opening times! We had the most wonderful family day out - three generations visited and all loved it. Entrance price was so reasonable - there is a lot to see and do,... More

I am very big into my history so this place was a dream come true for me! I just loved seeing how people used too live and hearing all the tales told by the actors in costume. Definitely a visit I wont forget!

Visited the Folk Park today as the weather was suitable, the Folk park is mostly an outside museum. Good value as we were only charged for the 2 adults our 2 children went free. The houses are well presented and the staff knowledgable...though not every house had someone there at all times. 2 new houses added since our last visit... More

Really surprised at some of the very positive reviews on here. We are not hard to please, both of us took the day off work and brought our children aged 15, 14, 11 and 9. Children were very excited as this was going to be one of their main treats over the summer holidays. But note - very few staff... More

My first visit to the folk park and it really exceeded my expectations. Excellent visitor centre, we particularly enjoyed the Titanic and Emigrant part of the museum (some parts of the Titanic area are better than the main Titanic Centre in Belfast!). Lovely Cafe and refreshment areas throughout the folk park,, all of which are reasonably priced. The staff in... More

Went on a trip with Donegal MS Branch and it was a great day. The Museum is so well planned out and so well staffed and the staff are very knowledgable. as it was 5th July they were still celebrating American Independence day and had great music, some re-enactments of skirmishes. Would highly recommend a visit. Take a picnic and... More

A wonderful day out! Go early to give plenty of time to enjoy the walk through the village and to investigate all the houses. The staff are so friendly and knowledgable about the houses, contents and area. All the staff we met showed a genuine love of the place where they worked. Excellent shop, cafe and toilets. Well presented easy... More
