A Wonderful "Photo Tour" for Everyone!
The Ireland 2021 Photo Tour
October 18-26th, 2021
A tour designed for both photographers and their partners

Come with us to experience Ireland like you've never seen it before! Join Joe Brady and Diane Bollen in a private motor coach as we explore the towns and landscape of southern Ireland for nine days. No big buses that can't get to those wonderful, out of the way places, no rushing, and the ability to make changes along the way when we come across something special. Our coach is all ours for the duration of the trip!

This is a custom tour designed for both photographers and non-shooters alike. For the photographers in the group, we will have photo ops and instruction as we tour the beautiful towns and countryside. There will be plenty of time to be enjoyed with the magic of Ireland, and Joe and Diane will be available at any time to talk photography.
While the photographers spend some time each day capturing great images, our driver and guide will share their great knowledge and experience in each place we visit. We will have plenty of time for visiting local attractions, shopping and exploring. 

The trip starts in Galway and finishes in Dublin and will of course make time to tour the Guiness Storehouse and enjoy a magical pint! As we have our own coach and driver, we may make adjustments to how long we stay in each place. We want to take advantage of great light for the best photography and be able to stop should a spectacular sight present itself!

Though subject to some fine tuning, here's our planned itinerary:


October 18-19 - Arrive in Shannon - Two nights in at the Harbour Hotel Galway

The trip will begin on Monday, October 18th, 2021 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 Tuesday 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.

October 20-22 - Killarney - Three nights at the International Hotel

On Wednesday 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.

October 23 - Kilkenny - One night at the Newpark Hotel

On Saturday 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.


October 24-25 - Two nights at the Academy Plaza Hotel Dublin

Sunday 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 home on Tuesday, October 26th.

October 26th - Fly Home - or extend your trip!

If you are interested in an extra three day Tour around Northern Ireland, let us know! We're working on the details but we know that we will head through Belfast on the way to the northern tip of Ireland!

For just $2895 per person (dbl occupancy), The Ireland Photo Tour 2021 includes nine nights of accommodations, breakfast each day, attraction and entry fees, a private motor coach and instruction for nine days. The package price does not include lunch and dinner, but we will make arrangements and/or recommendations for dining at each stop we make. All you need to do is make your flights and we will take care of the rest.

If you're passionate about photography and travel with a non-shooting partner, this is a trip where everyone gets what they desire! Plenty of photography and instruction for the shooter, plenty of touring and activities for everyone. If you're a single traveler, you'll also have a wonderful experience and private rooms are available.
