My daughter got married in July and had her reception in Cultra Manor. The food was fantastic and the staff were very friendly and professional. The manager was very attentive and he ensured the day flowed with ease so we all could relax and enjoy a happy occasion.

lovely place to visit bring you back in time to the old traditional methods of weaving basket-making etc. A lovely reconstruction of a village in the old days and plenty of animal to see. Highly recommended

highlight of our trip to Belfast, very nice if you have good weather, we did. The interpreters are very proud of their facility and enthusiastic about their subject. would go again if we ever were in Belfast, fairly quiet and easy going place. Also went to the Transport museum which was also interesting, particularly liked the Titanic exhibit.

Visited the Park with my friends from Scotland and they were blown away by the quality of the museums and loved the experience of walking through the countryside and wandering in to the lovely old cottages of past years and talking to the staff about life long ago in Ireland. Great day out.

Our boys (4 year old and 2 year old) loved it here, and the adults (ranging from 36 to 88) also had a great time (we went to the Transport Museum only).

We asked for it ourselves after reading about it on the wall. She should also have received a free book. Again no, lady in a lower floor offered it to her in... More
