Description

Step back in time and experience what life was like in Ulster over 100 years ago.

Wander through a beautiful rolling countryside and a bustling town filled with authentic, period buildings, where you will encounter costumed locals demonstrating traditional crafts in cottages, farm dwellings, schools and shops. Every day a wide variety of folk activities and demonstrations take place, from basket weaving and blacksmithing to crocheting and needlework. Take a stroll around the whitewashed farmhouses and meet the pigs, cows, sheep and hens that kept rural life turning.

The Ulster Folk Museum has been awarded the ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry standard mark, certifying that it is adhering to the respective Government and public health guidance regarding Covid-19 and has the required processes in place.

Visitors are advised to pre-book their tickets online.

The Ballycultra Tearooms will remain closed until further notice but visitors can bring a picnic to enjoy one of the many picnic benches located around the museum site. The cloakroom will also remain closed for now.
