The rectory at folk museum
15th, 16th, 22nd & 23rd July

Get to know the town of Ballycultra in an even more characteristic way by taking one of our 'Highlights Tours' led by a costumed guide. You'll explore our authentic period buildings, some of which have been meticulously transported from their original locations around Ulster, each with a unique story to tell. 

You'll learn the history behind our Picture House, Post Office, Corner Shop, Bank, Churches, houses and cottages to name but a few. While on the tour you'll also get the chance to watch our talented makers demonstrate traditional heritage skills such as blacksmithing, willow weaving and printmaking. Keep your eyes peeled for some historical characters along the way, who bring the rich stories of rural Ulster to life.
