Ulster American Folk Park

This park is an educational experience. Like many of our great treasure in Northern parts of Ireland it is massively under advertised.

It is a reconstruction of typical Irish homes in the 1600's depicting how people used to live and their emigration to America. Follow their journey from very poor Irish upbrings to what was deemed to be a better life in America.

Of the 40+ buildings to visit, as you Wander down the little village streets by far and away the most powerful is maybe the the first - a stone room/home of a poor Irish family complete with burning peat fire (actually working - an evocative scent) and Folk Park staff in period costume talking about life.

Definitely something different.
