Be lured off the beaten track to eight hidden gems of the Causeway Coast and Glens. Discover stories of sea gods, shipwrecks and sídhe-folk at sites where epic vistas hold secrets waiting to be discovered.
In advance of the release of the app, and with the current social distancing restrictions in place, Museum Services, with the assistance of Big Telly Theatre Company, are uploading content for people to take virtual tours, of these lesser known sites around the Causeway.
The soon to be released heritage trail app will allow visitors to discover the sights, sounds and secrets of their location with exclusive photos, interactive experiences and dramatic audio pieces inspired by the myths and folklore linked to the site.
Each visit will be supported by accessibility information on what’s there, what’s near, and instructions of how to get there. There are sites for people of all abilities, from the relaxed to the more adventurous.
The free Echoes of the Causeway app will soon be available at Google Play for android devices, or through the AppStore for iOS. You can download a draft brochure from the Resources page HERE.
You can get listen to some of the new dramatic pieces created for the app through the links below:
This project was part of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Department of Communities, Tourism NI and Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.
