We provide instant interpretive or virtual visitor centres
anywhere, at any time by erecting a Goldfone plaque
and a telephone contact number. This enables selected locations to have 24/7 tour guides available for places which may be too remote, difficult to staff or
constructing a building as a
centre would be too costly.
A “Goldfone.info” Plaque with a local
phone number is placed near to a tourist destination where it can be easily
located by a visitor. The visitor then simply calls a
local Irish phone number for more information. To hear the message they pick a
language – languages which can be speedily added to at any time. An option for greater levels of detail
will be offered if appropriate.
