About Cultural Roadmapp
This transatlantic startup based in County Clare, Ireland is on a mission to transform the classic road trip. This App is the first of a four-part audio tour series designed specifically for motorists. Deborah Schull is an award-winning writer and producer and also the founder and CEO of Cultural Roadmapp. She had long wanted to do something to showcase Ireland. “My first idea was a guidebook and then I thought a TV show might be better,” she says. “Then I came up with the idea of a travel app and when the Wild Atlantic Way opened in 2014, I realized it should not just be a regular app. It needed to be an audio tour.” However, it wasn’t until technology became hands free and triggered by GPS that Deborah’s idea fully took shape. “That allowed us to create a fully immersive app experience,” she says. “Because you can use the app without using your hands and because it’s linked by GPS to where you are, you can look at the world around you while you learn more about it. It’s like having locals along with you in the car.”
