The film is narrated in English, but PDF translations are available to download on the Ireland - Birth of a Nation website. Translations are available in German, French, Spanish and Italian.

The venue for the film is the lecture theatre at the Royal College of Physicians on Kildare Street, Dublin. The venue is two minutes from Trinity College and the National Museum of Ireland.
