Situated 7 miles to the east of Belfast, on the former Estate of Sir Robert Kennedy, the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum comprises two separate museums, the Folk Museum and the Transport Museum. The Folk Museum endeavours to illustrate the way of life and traditions of the people in Northern Ireland, past and present, while the Transport Museum explores and exhibits methods of transport by land, sea and air, past and present.
Dundonald Touring Caravan Park was our base for visiting Belfast. Viewed the sites, visited the Titanic Quarter and took an open top bus tour - not a good idea as it was wet and cold! Got off the bus at the Shanklin Road to view the murals - again, not a good idea as we had a long wait for the next bus. Several had been cancelled because of the weather, ours was the last one of the day.
Didn't get to see Stormont Parliament Building which was meant to be on the tour so drove past it in order to get a photograph.
Drove Ally to the airport for her flight back home. A couple of days later, headed back home ourselves.
