The website design combines beautiful photography of the location, contrasting typefaces and a mature yet elegant colour palette.

The result is modern and atmospheric — drawing visitors into a venue steeped in history and culture. It respects the timeless beauty that a national treasure and a significant part of Ireland’s heritage deserves.

Image CDN and manipulation system

The imaging system takes an uploaded image and automatically resizes it to fit any size the website layout needs.

Original images are safe and never edited. One image can be used in multiple places, with varying dimensions, without any editing required. Features like face detection and retina display versions make staff profile shots look great without any effort.
