From the geological landscape of Slieve Gullion in South Armagh to the unparalleled Antrim Coast, Northern Ireland has plenty to offer. In fact it is full of world class landscapes and Panoramic Ireland's photo tours are the best way to see what has been hiding away in this north western corner of Europe for decades.
Northern Ireland makes for a perfect place for a photography tour and the Antrim Coast is a perfect location for a workshop over several days. The spectacular scenery of the North is only a short drive, train or bus journey away.
For the visitor who is new to Northern Ireland we provide local knowledge to allow you to access some of the best locations in Northern Ireland, not just the famous spots. Darren's first book Portrait of Armagh was published in 2009 and covers the landscapes of this small but scenic part of Northern Ireland.
We will organise a tailored itinerary with locations that will give you great subject matter and will challenge you as a photographer whether it is street, urban or landscape photography.
We come to you whether you are in Belfast or Enniskillen and a tour or workshop will typically last five hours. Our listing on Discover Northern Ireland, the Official Visitor Website for Northern Ireland is here.
Each tour lasts approximately five hours and costs £120/€135 with £10/€10 per extra participant. Full days are also available. Click here to book a Belfast Photo Tour and click here to book a Causeway Coast Photography Workshop.

Having emerged from the shadow of The Troubles the North's six counties are similar to the rest of Ireland, yet they are distinct. It's often difficult to know when you've crossed the border, but that's a good thing. Long gone are the days of security checkpoints, searches and roadblocks. Today the visitor can freely travel into Northern Ireland without any concerns except having some Sterling currency.
A typical workshop tour around the Antrim Coast would begin with photographing waterfalls, the views through the glens and finishing at the north coast for sunset.
