The best piece of advice I can give tourists visiting Ireland is to get off the beaten path, to discover the road less taken and the hidden treasures awaiting. However, navigating Ireland’s backroads can be daunting for anyone unaccustomed to winding, narrow roads.
But fear not! Help is at hand from the developers of a new website called My Discover Ireland. Today I am pleased to publish Lianne Murphy’s guest post on this exciting new web tool for tourists to Ireland.
When visiting Ireland, do you know where you’re going or where things are? Most people dive into guidebooks for advice on where to go before arriving in Ireland. What about en-route to these destinations?
With My Discover Ireland, you can enter your starting point and destination and the application will display places you can visit along the route. This breaks up long drives, allows you to get fresh air and makes the journey even more interesting!
My Discover Ireland is similar to Google Maps but with added features to aid tourists in planning their road trips. For those who like to stray a little off the beaten path, this tool is a must.
Many drivers unknowingly pass fantastic places they could have visited; But now help is readily available by using MyDiscoverIreland.com
There are five categories to choose from:
You can choose to see as many types of categories you wish, or just one. The listings are clickable to see more information & photographs.
My Discover Ireland gives an estimation of the basic details of the route distances in kilometers and miles, the duration, fuel costs and driving directions, including turn-by-turn details which are so helpful when navigating Ireland’s roads.
The tool allows people to:
- Print driving directions
- Reverse directions
- Clear map
- Drag destinations to alternate the order
- Delete destinations by clicking X
The designed routes are shareable with people by emailing the link, sharing it on Facebook / Twitter or Google+. Information is at your fingertips.
A big thanks to Lianne Murphy for this guest post submitted on behalf of MyDiscoverIreland.com
Wishing you all happy new discoveries as you travel the highways and byways of Ireland.
