With acclaimed heritage interpretation, audio guides, community archaeology projects and community development, Abarta Heritage brings Ireland’s fascinating stories to life with creativity and accuracy.

Established in 2012 by experienced archaeologists Neil Jackman and Róisín Burke, Abarta Heritage is an award-winning company based in Tipperary. We have a passion for Irish archaeology and history and our mission is to empower communities to engage with their local heritage and to tell the fascinating stories of Ireland’s past, while promoting responsible and sustainable tourism.

We are experts at creating compelling content that reflects the true stories of a region.  As a company we have produced more than 30 audio guides and audio books, we have made a number of audio-visual films, we have designed and produced booklets, maps, brochures and interpretative panels and audiovisual hardware systems, and we are responsible for the management of flagship community heritage projects like Adopt a Monument for the Heritage Council and the Hellfire Club Archaeological Project.  We have also produced acclaimed guidebooks to Ireland’s Ancient East and the Wild Atlantic Way for Collins Press.

Through immersive storytelling, our audioguides and audiobooks help to bring the past to life. They are perfect for people who want to explore off the beaten path to find the hidden gems that are so numerous across Ireland.


Written by archaeologists, historians and travel writers, our guides give you expert insights into Ireland’s famous sites and places.  Our guides are professionally narrated and filled with music and sound effects to create an immersive and engrossing experience.

We have a large number of downloadable audio guides that cover sites all over Ireland, along with audiobooks which bring Irish history and archaeology to life.  The guides are expertly researched and solid on the facts and figures but we understand that it takes more than just the facts to tell a good story. We always aim to craft tales which appeal to people on an emotional level, immersing visitors in the dramas and passions of the stories’ main protagonists.

We don’t think history is just about the strong men and the great battles, our stories are full of the details which bring the everyday lives of ordinary people to life. So while we enjoy a good historical documentary, we also love a bit of The Sopranos or Game of Thrones – because along with being informative, our guides are entertaining and full of history’s twists and turns.

Our guides are the perfect accompaniment to exploration being full of tips and information which will ensure that you don’t miss a thing. But if you can’t get out and about then why not enjoy the guides from the comfort of your own home.

Also have a listen to our audio books which include fictional tales from medieval Ireland or listen to the true story of Ireland’s patron saint, St. Patrick which is written by a Patrician scholar.
