My family and I visited the Andrew Jackson Centre 2 weeks ago. We all found the tour interesting and enjoyed the few giggles in between among each of us. The lady Joni was very chatty and knew her stuff, but my only gripe was that maybe she should have had a uniform or even a blouse/Tshirt with the Andrew Jackson... More

This place is not well publicised so you will do well to find it about a mile countrywards from its more famous neighbour, Carrickfergus Castle. It is co located with the Amercian Rangers museum making it a very worthwhile visit. It is staffed by volunteers and only opens 11 - 3 from Thursday to Sunday. It is quite amazing that... More

From what we could see of the Andrew Jackson Centre, it was nicely presented. As American tourists, it was intriguing and enjoyable to find this as a unique touchstone with American history while visiting Antrim. Sadly, the museum was not open during a mid-week stop in early September 2013. We studied the traditional structure, took photos of it and the... More

We found the Andrew Jackson Cottage & US Ranger Centre very interesting, thanks to the knowledgeable custodians of the museum. We had a personal guide that thoroughly explained and answered our questions. It was one of the best free attractions we've been to in Northern Ireland. It's amazing how many world famous people had their roots in this region.

So, it’s a sunny afternoon in May, and I call by. They’re shut. Huh? I look to see what the opening hours are. There’s just a sign, with a ‘phone number you can call. I do think it’s great that this old thatched-roof cottage has been preserved. Note that all of America’s presidents were born in America – the ancestral... More

This attraction is about a mile north of Carrickfergus, in the townland of Boneybefore. It is the birthplace of Andrew Jackson, who emigrated with his parents to America, and became the 7th President. The original cottage was a bit further down the road, but was demolished in 1860, to make way for the railway. On my visit, the was a... More
