In the Light of Ireland


Ireland is always breathtaking, but the beginning of summer is one of the best times to capture images that blend dreamscapes with mist, ruins and the dramatic terrain.  Your itinerary is set in the unspoiled villages, rugged ancient abbeys, broad peat lowlands, and the beautiful coastline of Western Ireland. The soft pastel shades of the mountains and clouds appeal to the artist and photographer. These natural landscapes, along with the people render this Isle a place of inspirational beauty. We will visit places you could never locate on your own — tiny villages, hidden beaches, castles, and ancient abbeys.

You will enjoy traditional Irish breakfasts and dinners during your stay. Lunch will be at various restaurants and pubs, or we can stop in town and have a picnic lunch wrapped for our daily excursions in the field. Your home away from home, is a lovely hotel on the Quay (harbor) of Westport, County Mayo. It is walking distance to the quaint town center, with it’s many shops and pubs of Westport. There is a pool and optional spa facilities available. You will enjoy traditional Irish breakfasts and dinners during your stay.
