Explore Ireland's Most Famous Heritage Sites in 3D

The EU '3D-Icons' project aims to create highly accurate 3D models and a range of other materials (images, texts and videos) of iconic and internationally important monuments and buildings across Europe and to provide access to this data on line.

Over 130 monuments and buildings from Ireland, including decorated high crosses, the island monastery of Skellig Michael, the passage tombs of Knowth and Newgrange, and the ceremonial landscape of Tara are featured in this digital collection. In addition to making content available on line, this data has the potential to be of benefit to such sectors as education, tourism, the creative economy, conservation and monitoring of cultural heritage sites.

The site will continually be updated with new sites and functionality to enhance your experience.

Ireland's contribution to the project was carried out by The Discovery Programme.
