Release you team’s entrepreneurial spirit.
The Folk Museum recreates life from over 100 years ago. Our 55 exhibit buildings are used to show how people lived and worked in this part of the world over 100 years ago, with craft demonstrations, open hearth cooking and traditional farming techniques kept alive. It provides options for trails and unique activities. One popular option is an apprentice style challenge with teams competing to achieve the best returns. There is lots of space to bring in additional activities although most clients find this isn’t necessary.
- Large open space only 8 miles from Belfast city centre
- Ireland’s largest open air museum
- Scope to tie into many themes – agriculture, industry, pharmaceuticals, craft, transport
A great base
Cultra Manor provides a base your activities. It has conference space for up to 150 staff members so can provide facilities for presentations and team discussions before moving to the museum based activities. Activities unique to their environment, such as those available at the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum are rare and very special.
- Irish whiskey or Guinness tasting at McCusker’s traditional pub
- Traditional soda bread baking at the Old Rectory
- The art of basket weaving
- Irish games from the 1900s
- Irish Dancing Workshops
- Traditional Farming skills
- Treasure trails
For an unforgettable evening, take your guests to traditional Irish Ceili. Begin by exploring Ballycultra and meet some of the characters who live there. Taste freshly made soda bread topped with butter and homemade jam in the Old Rectory where you will be invited to join the Ceili.
In the silent cinema your guests will enjoy traditional Irish music played by talented young musicians and hear the stories behind some of the pieces. A meal of hearty home cooked food using recipes perfected in Ulster over hundreds of years will be followed by a caller and ceili band. The more people that get up to dance the more fun will be had by all.
This is just one of the unique experiences the museum can offer.
