I have written about castles before, namely my exploration of Barrymore Castle in Castlelyons, and Cahir Castle in County Tipperary that recently played host to Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Adam Driver and Jodie Comer for the filming of Ridley Scott's The Last Duel. Ireland is awash with castles but many are, unfortunately, barely more than a single stone. This is…

Wave Spray Rainbow in the Surf

Written by
Every so often a little bit of colour catches your eye, here by the coast of Ireland I noticed every breaking wave and its spray carrying a rainbow of colour towards the white cliffs of the Antrim Coast. Rainbows are usually fleeting, relying on a mixture of sunshine and water vapour meeting at the correct angle to create the separation…
Sometimes I get asked if the non-summer months, or at least October to March, are good for photography in Ireland. And of course the answer is yes. The autumn, winter and spring months hold some fantastic clear light days, moody overcast conditions, fog, burst of colour and often storms. These months also typically have fewer tourists around and so make…
I have written about Slieve League or Sliabh Liag before, Ireland's highest mainland coastal cliffs. This is one of Ireland's finest landscapes with its indented, steep cliffs constantly battered by the Atlantic Ocean hundreds of metres below. Bright, golden light catches each of the rocky indents. Join me, in 2021 and 2022, to photograph in Ireland's most scenic locations.

An Irish Waterfall in Summer and Autumn

Written by
Water falls over the waterfall, that's what a waterfall does; but sometimes in dry conditions, here during summer, it loses its scale. In full flow, the waterfall fills this rockface with a powerful force of continuously falling water, flowing fast from the deep rock pool below. Where water doesn't regularly flow vegetation can be found, green mats of bryophytes and…

Mosses and Ferns, an Irish Woodland Stream

Written by
Ireland is a green country, except when it snows and even in winter (February in the image above) that green still shows in the fields and woodlands of the Irish countryside. Here, in a fine little woodland of beech, ash and oak a cascading stream flows over rocks as the low rays of the winter sun brightens riparian scene of…
Panoramic Ireland's award-winning Dublin Photo Tours are still, for the moment, unavailable for booking but will be back sometime this year when the easing of Coronavirus restrictions allows. At the moment restrictions are not planned to be eased until March 5th 2021 but this may change and easing of restrictions will most definitely will not be quick and full for…
While spring traditionally begins in Ireland on the 1st of February, on Saint Brigid's Day, meteorological winter continues through until the 1st of March. We have had some snow already in 2021 here in Ireland but most has now melted with warmer and wetter temperatures returning. In fact we had a 14C temperature change in 48 hours from -7 degrees…

Rugged Landscapes of the West of Ireland

Written by
The West of Ireland, it's the place that I photograph most often in Ireland along with the Antrim Coast and Dublin. Here, a typical western scene of rugged mountains, very often coated with a soft green of grass and, here where you see the reddishness, bracken that has died back for the winter. Bracken is a type of fern Pteridium…

View from the Road, the West of Ireland

Written by
Morning, and a thin band of sunrise sunlight pierces thick cloud to illuminate the lower slopes of a cloud-covered mountain in the west of Ireland. Roads like these take you into the splendid scenic views in Ireland as they twist and turn, roll and flow through the rocky, boggy and lush green landscapes of the Irish countryside. Join me, Panoramic…
