Very friendly, helpful people, incredibly interesting exhibits! The maps are easy to follow, and it is very pleasant to walk around here.

We arrived on a damp afternoon to see around this living history site. It took over 2 hours to get round, but it was very interesting. We were impressed by the range of houses and the helpfulness of the 'hosts' in them. It was very interesting to see the range of accommodation from one room cottages to the eventual more sophisticated houses in America. Thinking of America, it was very clever the way we had to walk through the sailing ship to reach America. How the people survived the real experience in such a cramped conditions is amazing!

The scary bit though was the Irish town with its range of shops and the printers – filled with artefacts and memorabilia from *my* lifetime!

Eventually we got back to the visitor centre where the staff at about 4:45 were already packing up in the café, and in the shop turned the lights out at a few minutes to 5. That certainly stopped us buying anything!

Immerse yourself in the story of Irish emigration from Ulster to America in the 18th & 19th centuries. This exhibit brings the story their story to life. This is an indoor/outdoor tour, with a guided map.

Went to UAFP today as part of a local community day trip. When we arrived everyone headed to the cafe for breakfast (early start). The staff in the cafe were a little rude when ask for breakfast fry up, Told me that no hot food until after 12 pm( but breakfast on menu) so asked if possible to get just a simple ham sandwich made with nothing else in it for a child.. My response was NO would have to be ham and cheese???????? How rude again, to me they just couldn't be bothered.
As for the park we all had a fantastic day looking around the old houses and different ways of life. Cafe 0/10 park 10/10

This is an indoor/outdoor museum of the 18th century Ulster and pioneering USA with live and original artifacts from the theme time. Also has an exhibit of the Titanic disaster with focus on the third class passengers (mostly Irish peasants) and not the usual rich first class celebrity passengers as so many times dpicted in other stories or museums.

Originally funded by the Mellon (Irish immigrant to Pennsylvania, USA foundation, who made millions from his business. Many structures shipped from USA.

About 50-60 minute drive from Deere/Londonderee. Lots of helpful and informative employees. Indoor restaurants and outdoor grills to bu food and drinks from.
