Portumna Castle

In the early 17th century the Jacobean fortified mansion, Portumna Castle, was built by Richard Burke, the fourth Earl of Clanricarde. At the time it was one of the finest and most innovative buildings in Ireland. In 1822 it was destroyed by fire, but it is now undergoing an extensive programme of restoration by D�chas, the Heritage Service for Ireland. The restoration is expected to take many years, so The Virtual Experience Company were commissioned to recreate the Great Hall, in order to enable visitors to see parts of the Castle in its former glory. A Virtual Reality model was constructed and used as part of a short video outlining the role of the Great Hall at the castle.
