Cúl Trá-il at Ulster Folk Museum

Did you know: ‘Cúl Trá-il’ is derived from the Irish place name for Cultra (Baile Chúl Trá)?

This self-guided, educational trail at Ulster Folk Museum allows visitors to explore the rich and diverse language traditions associated with Irish-English, Irish and Ulster Scots. As you tour, you’ll get to explore the story of the Irish language through the places and people of the Ulster Folk Museum. The trail has been titled Cúl Trá-il, with its meaning derived from the Irish place name for Cultra (Baile Chúl Trá).

This is the first part of our wider ‘Languages of Ulster’ project, with research currently underway to introduce an Ulster Scots trail that celebrates local languages and culture as the next part. Choose to enjoy the trail using an illustrated map, which can be requested at admissions.
