Adare Manor, Ireland

The magnificent Adare Manor, one of Ireland’s premier luxury attractions, is the former seat of the Earls of Dunraven.  The house and its grounds have undergone a significant refurbishment. The building’s architectural heritage as a Neo-Gothic masterpiece has been preserved, while incorporating the contemporary comforts and technological conveniences that luxury travellers seek.

Challenge

Unlike a musuem, or attraction, there are no dedicated curatorial or tour staff at Adare Manor, so  to intepret the Manor’s history in an engaging multimedia tour for guests and visitors, Imagineear needed to take on the curator’s role and to seek out additional content resources.

Solution

Imagineear stitched together the different strands of the aristocratic Quin family history and finding the detail of how past generations shaped the architecture and design of the Manor and its grounds. This involved interview family members and gaining unique access to private historical documents and imagery, leveraging our established connections in Limerick before scripting, recording and editing adult and children’s multimedia tours delived on Imagineear’s advanced and reliable technology.

What we are proud of

We’ve woven multiple Adare stories into our scripts to make the interpretation of the Manor’s history and legacy the most rewarding experience possible for guests. Beside the multimedia tours we worked with the Manor to develop the collection for its new museum and made a a 30 min film, including speciaslist animations, for viewing in the museum and in guest bedrooms.
