The four provinces of Leinster, Ulster, Munster and Connacht have much to offer the discerning photographer.

  • Ulster

Places of interest are many and include the well known Giant's Causeway, Dunluce Castle, The Dark Hedges and Glenoe Waterfall amongst others.

There's some stunning scenery in Munster. Worthy of mention are the Cliffs of Moher, Dingle Peninsula, Blarney Castle, King John's Castle and Rock of Cashel. Also check out photography courses in Cork as this is one of Ireland's oldest cities.

A familiar sight will be the Giant's Causeway in County Antrim. Much photographed it will present a great challenge in trying to find that special photograph which is different to all that have gone before. A significant challenge indeed!
