Fáinne //

A mobile app I designed in collaboration with my colleague Sineád Davis for our Master’s thesis. We completed all design, development, and user research ourselves and documented our findings in our thesis, available at the DIT library. Fáinne is currently in beta testing, to be released soon on the App Store.

Fáinne is a mobile guide to the Corca Dhuibhne Gaeltacht. Incorporating Irish language, traditional music and dance, local festivals and activities, the app provides an immersive and educational experience to visitors in the Córca Dhúibhne area who wish to delve into the rich culture of the Gaeltacht while brushing up on their cúpla focal. Great for tourists from abroad learning Irish for the first time or seasoned Irish speakers wishing for a fun and safe environment to practice, Fáinne helps you find hidden gems in the area where you can eat, drink, play, and learn all while experiencing the unique beauty of West Kerry.
