What Is A Photo Tour?

What is a photo tour and is it different to a photography workshop? This is a question we get asked a lot. There is no real difference but simply, a tour is more focused on seeing the place with a photographic emphasis while a workshop is specifically designed to concentrate on one or more aspects of your photographic technique, equipment or composition. Both tour and workshop are interchangeable and there is a degree of overlap.

Because we tailor each tour to suit your needs, we choose the appropriate locations and times to maximise your time in Ireland and help you to improve your photography.

If you would like to know more about our photography workshops in Ireland please contact us here and join an Irish photographer for a day in your favourite part of Ireland.

Don't forget that we offer Gift Vouchers for Christmas and all year round for birthdays and other occasions. A photography gift voucher entitles the holder to the same benefits as a direct booking: one-to-one photography tuition, a choice of locations in Dublin, Wicklow and the rest of Ireland, morning or evening photography workshops, follow-on advice and critique on images. To buy a Panoramic Ireland Photography Gift Voucher for a friend, relation or even for yourself please follow this link or Contact Us.

What makes Ireland so special? Perhaps it is the landscapes, the history, the people or a combination of all of these that bring 7 million visitors every year to this little island.

Dublin is the capital of Ireland and the chief city on the island, Belfast is the second largest, and the chief city of Northern Ireland. The island has two currencies and two governments but there no border controls between the north and south; indeed it is quite easy to drive from one side to the other without knowing it.

It is true, in Ireland it rains a bit (isn't that why it's so green?) but don't let that put you off because it doesn't rain as much as you think. With some good luck there will be fine weather during your visit. The best months to visit are April, May, June and September. The days are long, the weather is often perfect and it isn't high season. Is there any better place to be than driving along a country road somewhere in Ireland on a warm, sunny day?

Ireland makes a perfect location to improve your photography or to enhance your image collection. Contact us today to learn more about our bespoke tour options.

Seven Essential Places to Photograph in Ireland

  1. Dublin - home to Guinness, Croke Park and The Book of Kells; you can't miss Dublin, a city that has improved over the past 10 years.
  2. Wicklow - mountainous and empty yet less than an hour from Dublin, Wicklow is home to the most famous hermitage in Ireland at Glendalough.
  3. Belfast & the Antrim Coast - the land of myths and legends, saints and scholars, how things have changed in 'The North' and for the better. The stunning landscapes are now easy for all to see. Game of Thrones has added to that appeal.
  4. Dingle - the furthest west that you can get in Ireland, and a peninsula that has as more pubs than you could ever visit. Visually stunning.
  5. The Burren - a unique geological landscape, The Burren is home to arctic, alpine and mediterranean plants.
  6. Connemara - rugged and wild, full of bogs, sea and sky as well as a few ponies of distinction.
  7. Donegal - the most northerly county in Ireland, the Atlantic coastline is second to none in Ireland with the sea cliffs of Slieve League and miles-long sandy beaches.

    Ireland's Dingle Peninsula on a Stormy September Day

    Sometimes the Irish weather is not pleasant for photography but with patience and local knowledge it is possible to get fine images of the rugged, green Island in the Atlantic.

    We went to Dingle in search of bright colourful scenes of mountains and the Atlantic coast like from this occasion a few weeks ago: https://panoramicireland.com/photo-tours-blog/coumeenole-beach-dingle-kerry-slea-head

    What we got, however, were the remnants of Hurricane Dorian blowing across Ireland's most westerly peninsula.

    Coumeenole Beach, Dingle

    Ireland''s west coast, the Wild Atlantic Way conjures up images of stormy ocean waves and barren rocky headlands.

    And for much of its 2,500 or so kilometres it is that way, but it isn't barren and not always rocky; it is visually scenic.

    Panoramic Ireland returned to Dingle recently for a photography workshop in one of Ireland's most beautiful places.

    Here is the famous Coumeenole beach, complete with gull and those gentle waves that the Atlantic sometimes gives us. To the right is the rocky headland of Dunmore Head and the Blasket Islands beyond.

    Notes From the Road, West of Ireland

    Despite assurances from all of the self-proclaimed experts on long range weather forecasting in Ireland, summer 2019 has not been as good as 2018 and is on par with 2017 as having been grey, windy, rainy, grey, windy, rainy...

    It has at least been warm, but for photography it has been challenging. The winds, while not hurricane strength have nonetheless been constant in their presence and changeable in their direction and speed.

    In other words, tripod-toppling weather.

    Here is one from a tour in the west of Ireland, as the sun's rays shone through the thick, fast-moving cloud onto the choppy harbour waters of the Atlantic. The greens of the fields aglow with stormy light.

    A Green Lane in Ireland

    The Irish countryside in summer is a fine place, with green in abundance.

    Many sights are full, overcrowded with tourists who come to see the famous places such as the Cliffs of Moher and the Giant's Causeway.

    Old Stone Bridge, Ireland

    Exploring in the Irish countryside can be a fine and rewarding experience.

    Here, I found an old stone bridge dating from the 1840s over a small river surrounded by green trees, its stony riverbed shallow with long grasses sculpted by the low summer flow.

    We stood in the water here, no need for wellies, to photograph this scene.

    Join Panoramic Ireland to explore and photograph the Irish countryside.
