Ulster Folk Museum

The Ulster Folk Museum is a remarkable living museum situated at Cultra, three miles outside of Belfast.

Whether you’re planning a welcome evening for your delegates, an experiential incentive programme, or a sponsor dinner – make your event uniquely unforgettable. Let your guests discover Ulster as it was over a century ago with an immersive experience, in a place that actively preserves traditions, stories and skills passed down through generations. This is not only a great conversation starter for local delegates but a fantastic option for international incentive groups to get hands on with museum experiences such as heritage crafts.

Set in the heart of the Ulster Folk Museum, is the beautifully restored Cultra Manor. This Edwardian manor house was once a family home and is now an elegant location for corporate events. Its grand interior with original period features provides a unique setting for gala dinners, awards ceremonies, conferences and meetings.
A museum isn’t just a building or a place it’s a force for change which positively impacts on the lives of the people of Northern Ireland. If you choose to bring your event to the Cultra Manor this support directly enables National Museums NI to continue preserving, restoring and exhibiting Northern Ireland’s treasures.
