Portumna Castle and Gardens

Portumna Castle's heritage project focuses on life below stairs for the staff in an 18th century castle kitchen environment.

The video reveals what life was like in Portumna castle in the 18th Century - the Lord and Lady at that time and life below stairs, while also teaching them about hand making brown soda bread and sharing some of the castle's folklore.

Here is an eight minutes piece to camera, filmed on location in the castle.

This engaging piece has been written, directed, acted and filmed by castle's guide staff.
