High Definition Heritage!

A New Tourism Partnership

This year we are opening up our database of high resolution interactive panoramic pictures to the tourism community throughout the Island of Ireland and beyond.

We are excited to announce a new affiliate partnership with Heritage Island.

Heritage Island is a marketing group representing the leading Visitor Attractions & Heritage Towns throughout the Island of Ireland and is the only marketing organisation dedicated to the promotion of Ireland’s major heritage and cultural attractions, North and South.

This innovative partnership will see the 360° content from our featured Heritage Island members syndicated onto www.heritageisland.com, meaning enhanced exposure and valuable user content for its members.



Heritage Island is an acknowledged leader within the industry, in the promotion of cultural tourism and has the trust and the respect of all the major players in the industry and the agencies & government departments responsible for tourism in the Island of Ireland, both North and South.

Virtual Visit Tours specialises in high-definition interactive panoramic photography, which lets viewers literally step inside the image, allowing a perfect virtual tour of some of the finest tourist attractions in Ireland.  Our niche in marrying high quality virtual tours with a well trafficked tourism gateway website is unique in the market and has received much acclaim.



Heritage Island members cover the broad spectrum of all that is good about Irish culture: Historic Houses, Castles, Museums, Parks & Gardens, Caves, Heritage Towns, Distilleries and Aquariums.

These attractions are as diverse as Ireland itself. They tell the story of kings and invaders, famine and emigrations, priests and poets, encompassing the social and industrial heritage which has shaped not only the Ireland of today but also influenced Europe and the New World.



Caroline Rice, Executive Director of Heritage Island spoke of the partnership:

The relationship with Virtual Visit Tours allows us to plug in their high quality virtual tours giving us great added value content and boosting the value of our website for our members.”

Thomas McVea from Virtual Visit Tours commented:

“We love the idea that we can bring you (virtually) with us on our journeys discovering places known and not so known – giving you a virtual prelude to the real-world experience that awaits you. We are delighted to have the chance to work with Heritage Island who represent some of the finest locations in Ireland.”

Downpatrick Town

We flew our drone over Downpatrick town and captured a couple of aerial 360° photographs. Look out for the marker points in the aerial virtual tours, some of which will allow you to jump from the sky down into some of the various visitor attractions found in the town.
