The Kennedy Room & Drawing Room

Civil and religious ceremonies are conducted in the bright and airy Drawing Room on the ground floor. The terrace and gardens are perfect for pre-dinner drinks and photography opportunities.

The Kennedy Room is named after the family who owned the estate on which the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum now stands and built Cultra Manor. It takes up most of the first floor. The Kennedy Room makes an intimate and sumptuous backdrop for receptions, accommodating 150 guests seated at round tables.

While you are enjoying dinner in the Kennedy Room, the Drawing Room is being prepared for the evening with your entertainment setting up. With dinner and speeches complete the party starts downstairs.

An evening buffet is often laid out in the dining room lit by its magnificent chandelier.
