Ulster Folk Museum at Cultra: Unleash Your Imagination

At the Ulster Folk Museum in Cultra, let your imagination run free in crafting your special day.

With turf fires, thatched roofs, cobbled streets, and more, you'll experience traditional character at its finest. Cultra Manor, nestled in the Folk Museum's glorious grounds, adds an extra touch of Edwardian charm with its beautifully lit and ornate rooms, providing secluded grandeur at its most elegant.

Ulster American Folk Park in Omagh: Blending Two Worlds

The Ulster American Folk Park in Omagh is a venue that seamlessly blends homely rural Ulster with the energy of 19th-century America. Mix and match spaces like big wooden barns, woodland cottages, a bar, a print shop, and an ice house to create the exact atmosphere you desire for your wedding and photos. Experience rustic charm at its most authentic.
