Ulster Folk and Transport Museum : Michelin's recommendations
Set in the grounds of Cultra Manor, this is one of the largest and most interesting museums in the whole of Ireland – and fun, too! The busy coastal road (A2) crosses the estate. To the south is the remarkable open-air folk museum dedicated to village traditions comprised of a whole series of buildings brought here from the Irish countryside. To the north lies the Transport Museum, which showcases in context vehicles used in Ireland since 200 years ago.
