Ireland & The Wild Atlantic Way
12 - 20 Sep
(9 days, 8 nights. 7 spaces)
The Wild Atlantic Way is a coastal route along Ireland's Atlantic seaboard. It offers the photographer a huge array of fascinating subjects: dramatic sea cliffs (the highest in Europe), endless sandy beaches & dunes, hidden coves, remote valleys, mountain ranges & old forests. Nestled in amongst these are colourful towns & villages, ancient tombs, abbeys, castles & dry-stone walls galore. Not to forget the people who carve out a living in this rough landscape. We will fly to Cork, pick up our minivan & drive to the Dingle Peninsula for 3 nights based in a delightful B&B on the Inch Strand. The Slea Head drive will take us to the ruins of the Minard Castle, the triangular rock at Dunquin, & the Blasket Islands. We will also visit Ross Castle & the Gap Of Dunloe in Killarney National Park. Then on for 3 nights to our hotel in Ballyvaughan with its delightful whiskey bar & photography of the limestone pavements at The Burren. We will shoot the dawn rise over the neolithic Poulnabrone Dolmen (5800 yrs old). We will photograph the magnificent views from the huge Cliffs of Moher & perhaps catch a storm at Doolin Bay. Finally we continue up the coast to Galway for the last 2 days to Connemara National Park, the Sky Road & Kylemore Abbey framed by steep mountains and a mirror lake. Flights back to the UK from Galway.
