Marcon to complete new exhibition fit-out in Killarney

Marcon has been awarded the manufacture and installation of a new permanent exhibition at Killarney House, which will become a ‘gateway’ Visitor Information Centre in Killarney National Park, Co Kerry.

The house, once the home of the Kenmare family and more recently that of the wealthy Irish-American McShain family, is a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Killarney.  The house is located at the Golden Gates entrance to the National Park and when finished will contain an 18 room interpretative exhibition, management offices and furnished period rooms.

Along with the restoration of the house, a 35 acre ornamental garden has undergone an extensive programme to return it to its former glory.

Interpretive designers Bright have been commissioned to produce the interpretation, exhibition, tour, and audio visual content for the Visitors Centre and Exhibition Rooms.  Marcon will work closely with Bright 3D and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.

Marcon will be responsible for the joinery, metalwork, specialist paint and decorative finishes, audio visual hardware and graphics.

The new Visitor Information Centre and Exhibition Rooms will open to the public in the summer.
