Dublin's Samuel Beckett Bridge was installed in 2009, it celebrates 10 years this year of spanning the River Liffey and is dedicated to the Nobel Prize for Literature winning writer and playwright, Samuel Beckett. Interestingly the architect of the Samuel Beckett Bridge Santiago Calatrava has already designed a bridge for Dublin dedicated to another of the city's famous writers, James…
They liken Killiney Bay to the Bay of Naples. The coastal area south of Dublin is a very scenic place but I can't see the resemblance, I've been to Naples and climbed Vesuvius. Yet Killiney Bay is a beauty, accessible by DART (commuter train) from Dublin and with fine walks and views it offers the visitor a flavour of the…
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…
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.…
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…
After a long day of photography in the Irish countryside, nothing can be better than watching and photographing the sunset. I have of course written about sunsets here on Panoramic Ireland before, here is a link to some sunset images from when I was undergoing chemotherapy and recovery from a cancer operation this year, sunset was easy to photograph.
The scenic road isn't always the one with world-famous views, vistas of the ocean or snaking upwards through the mountains. Often it's the road that takes you further, exploring a countryside that you want to travel deeper into. Here, the straight lines and smooth tarmac undulates across the barren, treeless landscape of County Antrim, miles from the UNESCO World Heritage…
Panoramic Ireland's photo tours often cover locations that are well known, from the Cliffs of Moher to the Giant's Causeway via Donegal's Slieve League but despite visiting these places many times throughout the year. Here is one such occasion, a characterful sight of donkeys in the Burren, the limestone area close to the Cliffs of Moher.
Moone High Cross dates probably to the 10th century, making it over 1,000 years old. Carved from granite, it is the second tallest of Ireland's high crosses. Enjoy the video embedded above showing a walkthrough of the site and the cross.
Ireland's highest sea cliffs, Slieve League in County Donegal is one of the highlights of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way.. The dramatic coastline rises to a lofty 600 or so metres above the Atlantic Ocean making these cliffs Ireland's highest, three times more than the more famous Cliffs of Moher further south on the western seaboard. Here bathed in golden sunlight,…
