I’ve recently been working alongside Kieran Swail from i3 at the local college, SRC. A business support centre, i3 helps local businesses to become better through innovation, incubation, and industry.
At Rostrevor Holidays, we have a glorious trail along the rivers, and around the farm land, that has recently been extended along the Kilbroney River. However it wasn’t being used to its full potential. So, with Kieran’s help, we set up a project titled “Apps, Maps, and Trails”.
Kieran’s reaction to the trail, with it’s scenery and views, was in line with our guests. Somewhere to enjoy and explore.
What was lacking was a clear guideline on where guests could walk. I explored various apps available, looking at how these could enhance the visitor experience. I realised I had stories to share about the area. So I set about taking photos, short videos, and gathering the local knowledge available.
An illustrated map is the start of my project to make the newly named “Yellow Water Nature Trail” more accessible to our guests.
