    Was in Ireland with my wife for a week visiting relatives and celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary, my cousin recommended this folk park to us and we went the Wednesday after bank holiday Monday, we arrived about 11am and had a fantastic time there the staff were so friendly and helpful from beginning to end, I booked the tickets online easily and it only cost under £20 for us both, we first visited the new 'Bad Brigid' exhibit near the entrance, which we both found fascinating and slightly shocking too! We then went around the interior museum and learned plenty about the irish emigration, boat, train and carriage travels and difficulties and hardship of the time.
    We then ventured outside to see the old thatch roof buildings, the ship mockup and the streets lined with shops full of period artifacts and detailed explanations, in some buildings there were tour guides in period costumes who explained everything to us and answered any questions we had, the park was fairly quiet at our time of visiting so was easy to see and read everything.
    The gift shop also was good and we were able to pick up some books and souvenirs.
    Compared to the titanic exhibition we visited 2 days later the American folk park was way better, value for money and more interesting, do yourself a favour, swerve the titanic and come here instead, you won't be disappointed!!

    Definitely worth the visit! Phil took us round the collection and we enjoyed our time. It was good to see items and cars from my own childhood, and also from my parents. The collection brought back many memories. A shout out to Phil’s wife Hazel for providing coffee and cake too. The entire time was first class and I highly recommend viewing the collection.

    We had a great day out and a lovely walk. They have a lovely cafe on site with lovely food and friendly service. Great place for families as they also have a great playground for youngsters. All in all a great place

    Vincent researched my family history in the area for me and located my cousins currently living in County Tyrone. Then he arranged meetings for me with them. To top it off, he picked me up at my hotel once I was able to reach Ireland, and drove me to the meetings! This is well beyond what genealogical researchers usually do! I had a wonderful time and am very grateful to him for his successful research and great service.

    Very poignant memorial.
    All the dead remembered.
    Simple and effective.
    Think there was a non functioning fountain I think - that was a shame.

    Excellent library - visited in the summer and I've now bought copies of all the books I borrowed.
    Knowledgeable friendly staff and a great selection of books.
    It's lovely to take the kids and there's a really good teen fiction section well away from the picture book corner!
    Like other reviewers the ebooks and audiobooks online have been wonderful during the recent lockdown. They also have an app for magazines, comics and graphic novels which saves our family so much money!

    Enjoyed my time in the centre! Especially the dance part was so much fun! First we did the tin whistle workshop, after that we did the Irish dance workshop, last but not least we did the Guinness tasting with some traditional music and pizza. Everybody was so nice and friendly! I really recommend this centre!

    The staff made this a successful day when we researched our family histories and connections in Northen Ireland to tie-in with our family in the US. Christine went above our expectations for the visit with numerous, suggested materials for us to review.

    The resources are wonderful. Plan for enough time to pour through it all.

    One stand and the remainder of the spectator space is terracing. All well presented and the stewards are always very helpful.

    Average but good. Spacious, can be expensive and not always worth the drive up. Staff are friendly and always willing to help

    We did everything under the rain and sun (when it chose to appear). We were out with Mark, Maggie, John, Jerry and gang.

    Nothing they wouldn't do for us to keep us entertained in the short span of time we were there - games (jumping beans to stay warm!), camp craft, random ideas and exploring the beach at low tide. The kayaking and swimming was fantastic. We managed to paddle out to one of the islands for a quick look. Crashing waves on rock just never gets boring. Look out for the dead end rock - there's a surprise I shan't spoil for the rest of you guys. It's awesome. We also got to pick some muscles for dinner. Created a new dish - DRUNKEN MUSCLES. Hope you guys remember the recipe and cook it for the next round of campers. I know we sure enjoyed it, finished the whole pot!

    The gear provided was all in good condition no worries there. We had a bloody good time at night around the warm campfire. Swapping stories and trying out hot whisky. It was great company and fun. Thanks again guys for a wonderful time!

    The crossbill gallery is understated but full of surprises and original art. I'd been in getting a load of stuff framed in previous months: weird stuff that was monumental to us, but never rejected and always returned beautifully.
    Every trip here, includes a nosey into the gallery and whats on offer and I've found original prints, original glass works (amazing) and augmented prints from artists around the world and home as well.
    My last purchase, was a print of 3 ballerinas as a present for my wife which hangs proudly in our front room.
    If you are in town, drop in, take a nosey and see whats there.

    This is a lovely intimate venue. No matter where you sit you will have a great vies and experience. I have been twice recently, once to Phil Coulter and the other to comedian Jake O’Kane. Both excellent performers but the venue definitely suits also. I would like to see a decent bar though.

    Very disappointed, my friend and I brought our toddlers here, immediate impression was place was unclean, dingy and run down. After a short time there my 1st impressions were only made worse. toilets weren't clean, didn't appear to be regularly maintained, all floors were grubby and covered in crumbs/dirt. I felt so uncomfortable , it's such a pity as omagh is a big town and would benefit from a good indoor play area for children/parties etc.

    The Centre has sadly closed and the follow on Garden centre as well. The recent Harsh winters have taken their toll on the facility and its viability. Sad, but just another victim of the times.
