I often get asked if it snow in Ireland or does the sun shine in winter in Ireland. And on certain days it is possible to say yes to both. This week has seen plenty of snow here in Ireland, and it has also seen lots of blue sky and sunshine - with all three on the same day so…

From an evening in Dublin, this short video features street scenes from around Ireland's capital city. Two well-known pubs feature, The Ferryman and The Stag's Head, as does the River Liffey which was the main reason for our photographic adventure in the city. On the photography tour we covered everything from long exposure architectural photography to street and documentary photography.…
Recent cold weather has brought clear conditions with bright blue skies and frosty mornings. The hedgerows take on another form when frost covered and the mountains beckon, their ice-covered summits set against the bright blue sky can be almost blinding. This is of course perfect for the landscape photographer in winter.
Ardmore Cathedral on a fine sunny winter's day, Ireland. Ardmore Cathedral is one of Ireland's oldest Christian settlements having been founded in the 5th century by the pre-Patrician Saint Declan. In other words, this was a religious settlement before the arrival of Ireland's most famous Christian figure Saint Patrick. Situated on a height overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in County Waterford…
Slievenamon, Sliabh na mBan or 'Mountain of the Women' As I write this Storm Fionn is hitting Ireland and bringing with it snow, heavy winds and high seas. It's rather fitting then that last week I climbed a mountain in County Tipperary called Slievenamon, whose Irish name means Mountain of the Women. This 721m high mountain sits at the end…
It's hard at times to get a good location for sunset photography on the east coast of Ireland. The further north and south out of Dublin that you go there become possibilities but Dublin south to Wicklow affords no opportunity to photograph sunset from the coast. This is, however, overlooking the Dublin and Wicklow Mountains with the Irish Sea in…
I'm currently working on my favourite images from the year 2017. This year has seen a lot of variety in my photographic subjects, from images of fine dining to music festivals, landscapes and animals. A little of everything that makes Ireland what it is. This image is from January, the opposite end of the year from now - December, yet…
During a recent photography workshop on Ireland's coast (see here for more information) we stopped to find a small cave at low tide. It wasn't a famous or large cave but it did have a certain character to it with intense sunshine coming in from one side. Photography workshops and tours in Ireland are not just about the typical landscapes…
The green fields of Ireland, looking lush green on a December day with snow-covered mountains. Ireland doesn't receive a lot of snow, given that Dublin lies on the same latitude as Edmonton in Canada and northern Donegal is almost parallel with Moscow.
