Ireland Photo Tour • July 8-16, 2020
$2895 pp, double occupancy, Single rooms available too!
Leisurely, small group, private coach travel for both photographers and their companions - No rushing, no big buses - just a wonderful experience!
Join us on this special private tour designed for those who love taking pictures and their partners who just want a wonderful vacation experience! We all had such a wonderful time last time that we can't wait to get back and we’re excited to be able to offer this again to you.
Unlike standard tours where you are headed from place to place and on a strict timetable, we have our own private coach and guide. That allows us the freedom and flexibility to adjust our travels to get the most out of every place we visit. Having a smaller coach also means that we can get to places others simply can't manage. No rushing, no big busses - just our group in a comfortable and relaxing journey filled with beautiful sights, wonderful photography and leisure time to enjoy and explore.
We've adjusted our itinerary to cut down on the hotels movements so that we can pack less and relax more in some great locations.
The trip will being on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 in Galway. We stay in our favorite in Galway - The Harbour Hotel - just a short stroll from the beautiful walking zone in downtown Galway. We'll tour the city and then settle in for the evening.
On Thursday we'll take a ride into the countryside through Connemara and visit Kylemore Abbey to photograph the wonderful settings and reflections along the lake. Along the way we'll stop for both photos and sightseeing.
On Friday morning we head south to Kerry via the charming seaside village of Doolin. We'll stay in Killarney for three nights and use that as our base to head out each day for more sightseeing and photos. Killarney is also a beautiful town filled with great shops and restaurants so we make sure that there is plenty of time for taking it all in at your own pace. While in Killarney we'll head out each day and visit the Dingle Peninsula, The Cliffs of Moher, The Ring of Kerry and more.
On Monday we head over to Kilkenny for one night. On the way we will plan a visit to The Rock of Cashel. Kilkenny is a medieval town with monasteries, St. Canice's Cathedral and as a contrast, the Smithwicks Distillery along with many fine shops and restaurants.
Tuesday brings us to Dublin for two nights. We'll visit the Guiness Storehouse and Tour Trinity College with the amazing Book of Kells. We'll arrange a final night pub crawl and dinner before heading back on Thursday, July 16th.
If you might be interested in extending your trip, we are also planning an extension with a visit to Northern Ireland. We plan on visiting Dunluce Castle, The Giants Causeway, the Bushmills Distillery and more - details to come soon!

What’s a Photo Tour?!
Photo Tours are vacations filled with beautiful Landscapes and Scenery and are designed for those who share a passion for photography and want a vacation they can share with their spouses or partners.
How Does It Work?
Each day will have time for photography exploration and instruction with two award-winning pros as we travel in our own private coach with an experienced local guide and driver. We’ll take in the sights, visit iconic locations, shop, dine and relax. Photography Instruction Available for All! It’s not unusual for half of the people on a Photo Tour to consider themselves non-photographers and that’s OK! Our photography instruction is available to all regardless of what they are taking pictures with and we often turn people into passionate photographers!
The Best of Both Worlds
Singles Welcome Too!
