Since we launched Abarta Heritage in 2012, we have become the leading provider of audio guides in Ireland. Our audio guides are expertly researched and you can depend upon them to be solid on the facts and figures.
But we also understand that it takes more than just facts to tell the whole story. You also need to appeal to people on an emotional level, to help to give them a passion for the subject at hand. So we don’t think history is just about names and dates, strong men and great battles. You also need to hear all the little sidebar stories to illustrate the life of people in the past.
So while we enjoy a good documentary on BBC4, we also love a bit of the Sopranos or Breaking Bad – because along with being informative, our guides should also be entertaining and full of history’s twists and turns. We use music and sound effects to convey the mood, because sometimes words are not enough. Our audio guides will put the listener centre stage and make them wonder how they would have reacted during the 1916 Easter Rising, or what life would have been like at the court of Brian Boru.
