Casino de MarinoA brand new smartphone application designed to help people navigate their way around Dublin has been launched today, one which is sure to be popular with those looking forward to their stay in one of the Dublin hotels in the coming months.

Currently only available on iTunes, the free walk Dublin application is an initiative by Dublin City Council which has been designed to work with the wayfinding system that was rolled out across the Irish capital last year. Identifying your location on demand, it will offer information on the distance you are away from hundreds of landmarks and places of interest around the city. Displaying the direction and the number of metres away, it means you can make an informed decision on where you next want to take your sightseeing tour.

The developers worked with a number of organisations including the National Council for the Blind, ensuring that it will prove to be a fully comprehensive guide that a wide range of people in the city can benefit from.
