After spending time in Cork, then partying fairly hard with some fellow travel bloggers in Dublin, I set off on a photo tour around parts of Ireland with How to Be a Travel Writer. After a couple last minute dropouts from the workshop, we were a tiny group, but it made it much easier to actually just go out and shoot and explore. I probably only hit the shutter about half the amount of time as I normally would on a photo shoot, but that’s how it goes when you’re teaching.
Anyways, the photo tour of Ireland started in the capital with a couple shoots in the downtown area. We then headed out to Howth, which is one of my favourite places to photograph on the planet, and a place I’d gladly go back to ten or fifteen more times. Then, to get a little bit obscure, we headed across Ireland to the west and the city of Limerick. Though Limerick is certainly rough around the edges, it’s that grittiness, combined with some pretty serious history, that made it a great place to shoot.
Below are the photos from Ireland from this 2013 trip. I’m sure I’ll be back shooting this country again, because it really is spectacular. Enjoy!
