Have a Question?

Ireland is a small country, located in the North Atlantic Ocean. Geopolitically, it is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. The island is renowned worldwide as an enchanting land of epic green landscape, idyllic scenery and medieval castles; where warmth and hospitality are national traits and poets are national heroes.

This photographic tour, designed by our Remarkable Transformer, Feargal Doherty will take you on a captivating trip to some of the most Instagrammable hot spots Ireland has to offer. Kicking off with a tutorial on how best to use your phone to take amazing photos, you will then visit photogenic highlights such as the Giant’s Causeway and the Slieve League Cliffs, where you will create your personal reflective diary of the positive feelings, the scenery, culture and culinary delights Ireland has to offer. Scenes of rustic lighthouses, national parks, sea cliffs and castles will inspire and develop your photography skills, all while learning about Ireland’s ancient history, folklore, myths, legends and of course experiencing the delicacies and the welcoming warmth of the people. Your journey will finish in Dublin with a reflective photo diary workshop run by Brendan Ó Sé, 2017’s iPhone Photographer of The Year.
