old church visitor centre
The Old Church Visitor Centre is a completely new visitor experience situated in Burt, Co Donegal. The centre is based in a beautifully refurbished church connected to An Grianan Hotel. The customer requested the construction of a centre based on the area surrounding Burt which includes the world-famous An Grianan Fort which is steeped in mythical Irish history.
MMID/Mirador created a completely original narrative that incorporates information about Burt and the surrounding area along with the ancient people and gods of Ireland. Folklore and fact are conveyed with innovative technology to bring the visitor on a journey back in time. A holographic projection in a purpose built thatched farmhouse and an animated interactive timeline set the scene for a colourful experience. Miniature models and a diorama illustrate the landscape and information panels provide in depth detail. Replica mythical weapons and realistic props provide a fitting backdrop for an epic battle projection and interactive 'stepping stone' hologram. Watch the video below, created by MMID/Mirador, to get a brief insight into the visitor centre.
MMID/Mirador has also produced a full banquet show based on the story of the Tuatha De Danann. This includes AV equipment supply & installation, show production, stage design and more. The show has been running successfully through the summer and will continue on a monthly basis over the winter.
