Lovely man made site showcasing the American journey the Irish took in early settlement years . However pricing on the Web pages showed £19 cost for us 3 teenagers and 2 adults but on site £25. Now we were there just as the old season finished and the new one started the indoor museum was still closed thus the cheaper... More

This was a really well done museum that explores the historical link between Ulster and America, focusing particularly on the lifestyle and experiences of those immigrants who sailed from Ulster to America in the 18th and 19th centuries. So informative. Great learning experience and lovely grounds with live animals on site.

I have been here many times and always enjoy it as it is great for the kids who cannot believe that people used to have no loo's, phones and T.V.s etc. It is also a nice walk with lots of picnic tables in the car park which is handy but many of the exhibits are not suitable for people with...

This was not the best time of year to visit and some of the features were being serviced. However, the staff were great and put a lot into the presentation. It would be lovely on a nice summer day!

The Ulster American Folk Park is a must see when visiting the Omagh area. It gives a hands on insight into the way of life for folk who lived a simple, yet hard life and who eventually move to America "to find a better life". It is of interest to all ages. A great day out.

This is a must see venue for all visitors to N Ireland , authentic recreations of old cottages , schools churches of a bygone era. Take a picnic and spend the day in the park , look at how life has changed . Then take time to reflect and hopefully be inspired to enjoy the privileges of modern life.

Visiting Ireland annualy, we had had this place in our "tourism plans" for years, but somehow never had time to do it. This time, however we decided firmly it to be our priority and that was certainly one of the smartest decisions. Even we went there at the very beginning of January, that, as the end of their Christmas season,... More

Whatever season is chosen to visit the "Folk Park", as its affectionately known to locals, there is always something of interest. There are celebrations of many Ulster and American events, with theatrical panache. 4th July, The Bluegrass Festival and Halloween ( with its origins in the old country) to mention a few. We attended the Halloween night, great fun and... More
