Wild Atlantic Ireland

Mountains & Coast, Music & Craic - Spring

8th to 13th May 2018

TPOTY Photo Iconic Ireland Workshop

Green barn in the Twelve Pins, Co Galway

The west coast of Ireland offers stunning scenery and a warm welcome. Spend six days/five nights enjoying the beauty, charm and splendour that is Ireland in the Spring - with expert tuition and guiding from founder of Travel Photographer of the Year, Chris Coe, and hugely experienced guide, the renowned Irish musician, Olcan Masterson. 

Olcan has lived in this part of Ireland for many years, and Chris photographs calendars, guide books and coffee table books of Ireland, so between them they know all the best places to go and things to see, whether that's on or off the beaten track. You'll also have plenty of fun and learn a great deal about the places and people you encounter as you get under the skin of this very special place.

The Wild Atlantic Coast of Mayo and Galway in the Spring

The Emerald Isle is waiting to welcome you as the west coast landscape of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Coast bursts into life after the winter. Its famed green landscapes are dotted with colour from spring flowers and white crofts. It's a time of change and no two days are the same, but regardless of weather there is lots to photograph, from colourful details to big sky landscapes of mountains and sea.
