We are fast approaching Christmas again and as is usual for this time of year I have been making and sending out vouchers for photo tours by Panoramic Ireland. Here, a fine waterfall is the focus for one voucher, a gift from a father to his daughter for a landscape photography session in the west of Ireland. On this occasion…
As part of my online photography sessions here on Panoramic Ireland I give one to one online photography reviews, tuition and help aspiring photographers to improve their portfolio and photographic skills. Recently after my webcam stopped working I decided to use my GoPro Hero 9 as a webcam. GoPro's website lists this as a feature of the action camera, also…
Blue hour in Dublin, photographing the city's modern riverfront skyline. The River Liffey east of the city centre has changed substantially in the past 15 years. Formerly the quays here were flanked by red-brick Victorian warehouses of only a few storeys high as can be seen in the middle section of the image here. Now, new buildings line the river…

Torc Waterfall in Summer, County Kerry

Written by
I have written about Torc Waterfall in County Kerry before, my last visit was during the winter on a trip to the Kingdom that saw me photograph snow on the mountains and visit some of the finest sections of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way. Here, what is probably Ireland's most photographed waterfall, Torc cascades from behind a natural green curtain of…
A recent photography tour in County Donegal brought us to the edge of a mountain to photograph the landscape of Ireland's most northerly county. The weather was overcast, torrential rain had put an early end to photographic pursuits the previous evening, so despite a long journey across the country we headed off to photograph at least a few of the…
On a recent photography tour in Cobh, County Cork we stopped to photograph the town's best known features - the hilly seaside street with colourfully-painted houses known as the Deck of Cards, and the lofty Saint Colman's Cathedral. It was my first time visiting the seaside town since before the lockdown began in March 2020 and within moments it became…
Ireland is currently (July 18th 2021) in the grip of a heatwave, one that has seen high temperatures all over the island including Northern Ireland's highest recorded temperature of 31.2C. There are few breezes and little cloud or rain, the beaches are packed and tourist hotspots are literally that - hotspots, in more than one way. So instead of photographing…
Today 28th of May 2021, the Irish Government announced the next phases of Ireland's reopening post-covid. This includes the return of international travel on the 19th of July, which as Father Ted fans will know is also the day in history when Galway was liberated from the Indians, Marathon became Snickers and of course the ice age ended. {{module YouTube…

Southbound, Phil Lynott Statue, Dublin

Written by
A sunny day in Dublin and until recently I couldn't help but think of the place as a bit of a ghost town. Usually a visit to the Phil Lynott statue in Dublin, just off Grafton Street, is busy no matter the time of day. But over most of the past year since the first lockdown in March 2020 right…
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…
