Summary: Drumnahunshin House interior

Key dates:

A well-off farmer would have had a number of well-furnished rooms in his house. Rising incomes allowed the more prosperous farmers to improve their homes by adding extensions and switching to slated roofs. Inside imported furniture and decorative glass and table sets became prominent features. This house, complete with suitably decorated rooms, has been reconstructed at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum.
