We’re delighted to be adding three new sections to the Donegal App for 2013 – accommodation, food and drink and a ‘What’s On Guide’ courtesy of our good friends What’s On Donegal. The numbers for these new sections is been deliberately kept down and is on an invite-only policy. We wish to keep up the high standard of the app to date and if a place has passed the test, then it will hopefully feature. We will require a reasonable fee to cover our costs, time and effort and after that, it’s over to the visitor.
With these new guides, we believe we will be offering something very special to the visitor to Donegal in the year of The Gathering on the devices they have in their pocket or in the car to guide them around the county. The very best of Donegal is all theirs to enjoy for free. If they like the sound of your business, they can click a button that shows them how to get to you. If they want to book dinner, they can click to be be connected to your restaurant. If your trad pub have a thriving social media page, they can be kept up to speed about the big do on Saturday night and if you have nice audio clip or a captivating video, that can be added too.
Nowhere else in Ireland has anything like this – a cross platform app that has been designed with the tourist in mind told in an informative yet informal manner and featuring a ‘first team’ of attractions that can boast a stellar range of things to see and do. Donegal has the talent, the scenery, the culture, the food and the hospitality and with the app, we have the innovation that can reach directly into the GPS device of the would-be tourist. Even the weather can’t stop us – here’s to a great 2013. Tell all your friends about our innovation and let’s show them Donegal at its best.
We’re very excited to be putting this new concept together for the magnificent county of Donegal. With it, you’ll have the free app for either iPhone or Android as well as Garmin and TomTom sat nav devices. Five guides on everything you’ll need to know to make your visit a success – arts & heritage, activities, the greatest ‘shrines’, outdoor pursuits and the Wild Atlantic Drive are all dealt with.
Not only that, but you’ll be able to click to get full website details of the places, contact details, any worthwhile YouTube videos on that place, their Facebook and/or Twitter accounts and where they rank on TripAdvisor.
All in all, it is the one stop shop for everything you’ll be looking for on a place, brought to you by people who know what it is to be in place and in need of a helping hand. All we ask you to do is leave us some feedback and if you like the service, recommend us on your social media service. We hope you enjoy the donegalapp in 2012 and beyond.
