Situated on the outskirts of Belfast, the Ulster Folk Museum is a nod to days gone by. There is a town with a bank, post office, and printers, to name a few of the common businesses that once would have been important assets to any town. You might even be lucky enough to see some craftsmen and women demonstrating trades like basket weaving and carving.
At once you head out of town, you will find a rural school, mills and farm yards.
We visited at Easter, so some special activities had been provided. The kids enjoyed trying their hand at egg rolling…
… and there were a few very socialable bunnies!
Mostly though, we just enjoyed roaming around, exploring whatever sights we came across.
There is also a fully up to date and functional tea shop in town, where I would recommend you try the flat bread pizza! The Ulster Folk Museum is definitely worth a visit, for kids and adults alike!
