Day 1 – Arrival to Ireland and drive to County Kerry, Killarney

Individual travel to Dublin. We will meet you at Dublin Airport during the morning. Then we will drive southwest to County Kerry. You will stay in Killarney for the first three nights.
The region around the bustling city of Killarney is a paradise for photography and nature lovers. Look forward to wild and rugged landscapes with magnificent forests, idyllic lakes and rushing waterfalls. In addition to landscape photography, we also keep an eye out for deer. With a bit of luck, you can already capture your first wildlife pictures.
We will arrange the exact day program at short notice on site, in order to be able to respond to the respective weather and light conditions. We also take into account where the deer are at the moment when planning at short notice. Deer are mostly active mainly during sunrise and sunset.
Due to the small group size we can optimally respond to your individual needs and discuss photographic topics of your choice and put them into practice immediately (e.g. long time exposures, use of filters, animals in bad light conditions etc.). If required, we will also have time for image reviews or tutorials on image editing.

Weather

The Irish weather is always bit of a surprise. Sun, clouds and rain always alternate. Perfect for photography! The temperatures vary between 7 and 15 °C in Autumn. This season convinces mainly with the beautiful autumn colours, although it might rain a little more than in summer.

Physical Condition

The tour does not make any particular physical demands. We will take short hikes to the photo locations. Individual photo locations may be a little exposed. However, if you are afraid of heights there is always the possibility to take pictures from a little further back.

Procedure photo trip

The exact day's programme will be put together on site at short notice to consider the weather and light conditions. In order for you to be able to take pictures at the right time with the right light in the golden and blue hours, we will be outdoors especially at sunrise and sunset. In between, during noon or in the afternoon, you will have free time to rest a little, explore the surroundings or, if you wish, take part in picture reviews and tutorials. If you wish or if fantastic weather and light moods arise, we can also include another photo session in the afternoon.

Double room

Single travellers can book half of a double room. If there is no other guest who wants to share the room, the single room surcharge will apply.

Entry requirements Ireland

Swiss, German and Austrian citizens need a valid passport or a valid identity card for stays up to 3 months. Swiss citizens are on equal footing with EU citizens and can carry out passport control at the specially designated EU counter.
