The history of Belfast begins at Clifton House! Now, through the use of world class immersive technology, from the moment you step through our door you will be transported back in time to the Belfast Poor House – opened in 1774 – which provided sanctuary to thousands of people, from the young and old, to local citizens and passing sailors, throughout the years.

With the introduction of augmented reality, visitors can now fully immerse themselves in what life was really like in the late eighteenth century. House Tours are every Saturday and Sunday.

Or experience Mary Ann McCracken’s Belfast, as you walk in the footsteps of this remarkable abolitionist, philanthropist, abolitionist and social reformer in our new Walking Tour, which takes place every Friday afternoon.

We can also facilitate private group tours for organisations or schools.
