Really interesting museum

One of my choices while visiting Northern Ireland for the first time. It gives a history of linen production in northern Ireland. The most interesting exhibit was the working loom section: I wish to give a special mention to Deborah who showed us in detail how they set up the cards for the jacquard loom from the drawing to the cloth. Very friendly and helpful staff at the reception also.
