This was a delightful little spot that honored our 7th president whose parents were born just down the road. I was surprised at just how many presidents had family from Ireland. It was run by a charming man who was quite knowledgeable and very friendly. There is a second part of the exhibit dedicated to the Rangers fromWWII. The view... More

Very interesting place to see. Host Sean was exceptionally knowledgable and welcoming. There is also a separate exhibit for the US Rangers, who trained and were stationed in Carrickfergus in WW2. Well worth a visit!

I had not planned on visiting this very interesting place but got into a long conversation at airport car rental with an Irish history buff i.e. US and Scot-Irish immigration and contributions to the US history story. She told me to see the Jackson cottage. I was headed to Giants Causeway but what the heck I have a portrait of... More

Ancestral home of american president. Very quaint cottage with fabulous views over belfast lough. Great guide Sean very informative. A hidden gem before beginning coast road trip. Well worth visit but check opening times.

My four year old son and i happened across this little gem after planning to visit another site in Carrickfergus which was in fact closed. I've driven past the brown roadsign many times on the main Coast road but never actually called in. The centre is staffed by a mixture of volunteers and staff and opens largely I think 11am... More

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
