Visit the Ulster American Folk Park when staying at the Everglades Hotel

Located 30 miles from the Everglades Hotel in Derry-Londonderry, the Ulster American Folk Park tells the world famous story of Irish emigration at a museum that brings every detail of it to life. The guest can follow the life of the Irish emigrant from the thatched cottages of Ulster to the emigrant sailing ship leading then to the log cabins of the American Frontier.  The Folk Park is an interactive and interesting look at history where you meet various costumed characters who have tales to tell and food to share.

Immerse yourself in the story of the brave emigrants who made the journey across the Atlantic to America hundreds of years ago.
Wander through the thatched cottages and log cabins and meet costumed characters who will show you traditional crafts, tell you a few stories and maybe even share a bit of their good food.

Board a full-scale emigrant ship to experience the conditions faced by many as they set sail for a new life in America. With 30 buildings and exhibits to explore and lots of activities for children, the Ulster American Folk Park is a wonderfully unique experience.
