Explore the Emerald Isle!

The photography and sightseeing tour will be geared to capturing the beauty of Ireland in photographs. However, anyone is welcome to join the tour. Anyone from novice to expert photographers are welcome. Because I am so closely connected with quilters we plan to make a stop at a wonderful quilt shop near Dingle.

July 30 - August 6, 2018

or possibly
August 13 - 20, 2018
(a 2nd tour if there is sufficient interest)


I'm excited about leading a potential photography and sightseeing tour in Ireland. The tour details are outlined below. The final itinerary is not 100% set, but the general outline is listed. Our driver/guide is Con O'Leary. I have worked with Con on four previous tours. He is simply the best there is. He loves Ireland and it's history. He has tremendous experience as driver/guide and leads high-quality tours. He is a favorite with National Geographic tours. Con's tour company is Scotia Ireland - VISIT HIS SITE

I am seeking 30 individuals for the tour. An international group would be fabulous. We will rendezvous in Dublin. I’m not looking for a commitment at this time. I'm compiling a list of those who are seriously interested in the tour to determine the viability of moving forward. If your interest is "very strong and likely", please reply via the link at left and let me know. If you would be touring with a spouse, friend, or group of friends, let me know that too. If the interest is sufficient, I will pursue finalizing the tour with Con.

I have been to Ireland seven times. I love it. It is magical, affordable, and unforgettable.
