General information

White House, Newtownabbey For EHOD 2019

The White House has nestled on the north shore of Belfast Lough for over 400 years. During that time, it has witnessed historic scenes, from the ships carrying King William's armies to Ireland for their long march south to the Boyne, to the Titanic cruising past on its maiden voyage out of the place of its birth, and the bombers of the Luftwaffe using Belfast Lough to guide them as they blitzed Belfast in WW2.

Having fallen into disrepair and been used for a time as a Gospel Hall, the White House Preservation Trust commenced a project in 2000 to preserve and restore the iconic building. As a result, it was transformed into a fascinating visitor centre with a range of exhibitions, artefacts and interactive displays which allow exploration of the past and present of the building.

Over the two days of European Heritage Open Days guided tours of the building will be conducted to further expand on the information within existing exhibitions and help visitors gain an even deeper understanding of the building’s integral role within the history of Northern Ireland.
