What to Expect

We will spend the first 3 nights of the workshop in the beautiful Radisson Blu, Letterkenny. This will include single occupancy rooms with breakfast included. The hotel also has an amazing restaurant with a wide range of food to choose from including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. You will also have full access to the leisure centre and gym facilities.

Our last 2 nights will be spent in the amazing Ballylinny Holiday Cottages on the north coast of Northern Ireland, close to the Giants Causeway. I have two cottages booked, one 4 bedroom and one 2 bedroom, this ensures everyone gets their own room. The cottages are comfortable, spacious and extremely clean, with beautiful wood burning stoves, they are also self catering so we can make our own food as we go, or eat out.

Depending on weather, you can expect to shoot sunrise and sunset everyday during the workshop. After each morning sunrise we will take a couple of hours break and aim to be back out shooting around midday, this will give us about 8 or 9 hours shooting each day, depending on weather. During potentially bad weather, we can also catch up on some post processing.

We will begin the workshop at 2pm on Tuesday March 23rd and it will end at 2pm on Sunday March 28th.

Please note
We can arrange twin or double rooms should you want to book as friends or a couple and get a discounted rate.

Transportation

You have TWO choice

Our meeting point will be The Radisson, Letterkenny at 2pm on March 23rd. From there you can relax and let us take the driving from here in our fully insured and spacious luxury 9 seater mini bus, which comes fully air-conditioned, with power points for charging all phones and cameras. When we move from Donegal to Bushmills on March 26th each person will drive their own vehicle to Ballylinny Holiday Cottages, again not having to drive again until the end of the workshop on March 28th.

OR

If you require a lift from Dublin and back, the cost will be an extra €50pp, email me at bernard@bglandscapetours.ie to get pick-up point.

Weather

Sunrise 6.20am

Sunset 6.55pm

Ireland isn’t exactly known for its sunny weather, but what it can be known for is the amazing light, stormy seas and moody clouds. No matter what the weather, you can be sure we are in the right part of the country to capture what ever mood is thrown at us. As the weather is so unpredictable in Ireland its impossible to set out a definite itinerary until we actually start the workshop, I will however be keeping a very very close eye on the weather throughout the day to make sure I get you in the right place, at the right time, for the right light.
