Kids enjoyed the gullivers travel section of the tour and the land of the lilliput. The story of Armagh made the walk around the city more interesting and the staff were very helpful with extra tips.

An excellent place, well worth visiting, especially the Gulliver's World. Afterwards you can try your hand at being a scribe with the old quill pens. Excellent attraction, especially for a rainy day.
