Road Trip: Ireland

Winner of Irish, American, and international awards, Road Trip: Ireland is the inaugural audio guide in Cultural Roadmapp’s 4-part series, covering the spectacular 1500-mile Wild Atlantic Way driving route.

The hands-free tour offers an unprecedented immersion into the culture and heritage of West Clare for visitors and locals alike.  

Brimming with interviews, folklore, music performances, and much more, the audio tour provides a deep experience of a county with an amazingly rich cultural life, past and present. The tour includes 11 destinations, including the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren; curated recommendations for nearby attractions, food, and lodging; and a scavenger hunt highlighting hidden gems. The 90-minute tour is best enjoyed leisurely over two days.

Fantastic idea and great implementation. A really creative way to help travelers get the “real Ireland” beyond the touristy areas.

Fantastic opportunity to learn more while looking out the window and not in a book!

There are people that fight and swear up and down that this Ireland doesn’t exist anymore. It’s heartwarming to see the spirit is alive and well!

From the comfort and security of your car—without the distraction of a
visual app—bask in the unvarnished wit and wisdom of
dozens of cultural experts (local heroes, creative icons, academics,
garden-variety “characters”) who bring homegrown culture and heritage
to life and new meaning to the passing landscape. “There are no
strangers here, only friends you haven’t met yet,” wrote the Irish poet
William Butler Yeats. With Cultural Roadmapp, you’ll soon feel
as if you’ve known these new friends all your life.

The Cultural Roadmapp experience is a far cry from the regimentation of package and coach tours. And because you’ll be driving in between the well-known destination points, we alert you to the gems hidden far from the madding crowd. Even better, you can “tread softly”—leaving a lighter footprint on the environment—and support establishments off the beaten path.

Through interviews, storytelling, poetry, and humour,
our audio tours encompass the depth and breadth
of local culture and heritage—from architecture to folklore to
maritime history, and more. It all comes together in elegant
narration voiced by brilliant Irish actors and laced with
stellar sound effects and world-class music performances.
