heritage interpretation consultancy

We provide visitor experience reviews and interpretation workshops.
This includes mapping the visitor experience from entrance to exit and how you commnicate your heritage to your visitor. We address operational resources, interpretative media, storyline and management strategies. The review highlights strengths and challenges. We also provide a realistic action plan identifying short term needs, maximising resources, site operation and finances. We also identify the long term development opportunites taking account of economic and market patterns.

We have completed visitor experience reviews with:
Dingle Aquarium Ionad Arann Blackrock Castle and Observatory Verbal Arts Centre Derry
Arigna Mines Smithwick’s Brewery Muckross House and Gardens Drogheda Museum
Derrynane House and Gardens Tullamore Dew Lough Crew Gardens Mayo Abbey
Strokestown Park and National Famine Museum Magee Donegal National Print Museum Sligo Museum
Beaulieu House and Gardens University College Cork Belvadere House Trim Castle
Giants Causeway      

We provide special studies and reports including feasibility studies, financial plans contributions to large and small grant scheme applications, collections value and assessments, long term development planning, and project development planning.

While the concept of universal access is embedded in our visitor experience assessments, planning and design work, we separately provide universal access auditing to existing heritage and tourism sites. An audit includes survey and assessment of the site, register of effects, suggested mitigation and recommendations. This audit is carried out taking address of equality legislation, Part M Bulding regulations and universal design guidelines.
