This attraction combines history and fun. It is an ideal place to learn about the potato famine and the reasons why so many Irish people emigrated to America. The grounds are a great place to walk around and, of course, there is the added interest of the houses and buildings to go in to with costumed guides giving relevant information.... More

Drove the long distance for the 4th July celebrations. On arrival we were given a timetable of when the events were on at the various houses. We walked to the house where the lady was to demonstrate her soda bread making, we were there well on time (about 5 mins before she was due to start) 45 minutes later she... More

I have visited her on several occasions with my husband and children-when they were little. Returned with my adult daughter and our relatives from the US. It's still a great day out, we all enjoyed the experience, the staff were friendly and informative and I was delighted to see that the park is being expanded and updated regularly. Its an... More

This museum along with the Antrim Coast Road and the Titanic Museum in Belfast are, in my opinion, the "must see" places in Northern Ireland. The quality of the buildings were outstanding and a reflection of the workmanship involved in the rebuilding of these old buildings. The chats we had with the staff, especially those we meet on our way... More

Brilliant family afternoon spent here. We wandered round here at our leisure which is a bonus. Spent a lot of time in the Blacksmiths with a lovely guide who really made us feel very welcome.

Thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Tells the story from very old days through to the mass emigration and then onto the "NEW World". Very well done and most of the houses had guides who brought it all to life. Exhibitions go on throughout the visit. Really enjoyed the blacksmiths and the corn bread guides. The school teacher was particularly good -... More

I have driven past the park many times and only last week went in with my 3 young children. They absolutely loved it, as did I.. The staff were fantastic and I would recommend it to all ages. Will be back soon

This park has certainly improved over the years with new buildings and amazing exhibits. A whole American street has been constructed. The information centre is worth a visit with all the lovely gifts etc. The coffee shop has a great range of both hot and cold food at a reasonable price.

Two Adults, plus male 18 year old and 14 year old female visited on a week day. Total cost was £25stg. Very reasonable we thought as you would not have to spend another penny if you did not want too. We started of by visiting the coffee shop, very enjoyable morning tea/coffee and scones. Each of us got our info... More
