Welcome to Wild Atlantic Way Photography Tours. We are based in Westport, Co Mayo, at the heart of the Wild Atlantic Way. We offer small, highly tailored photography training tours, delivered in a relaxed yet structured way, based on 20+yrs of experience, in facilitation, course design and delivery and of working with a myriad of groups, across a diverse range of settings, including outdoor activities, life skills and adventure training.

A Wild Atlantic Way Photography Tour is unique in so much that we also offer exclusive wine tasting evenings, in our boutique Wine Bar, Coffee House and Live Music Venue – The Gallery, housed right next door to the Wild Atlantic Gallery.

Our tours are based from Westport, you can choose your accommodation, meaning that you are able to have your own space as well as have more control over your final budget. Prices include all your training, packed lunches, wine tastings, training and transport to and from your location based training. What isn’t included is flights to and from Ireland or transfers to and from Westport. This gives you more freedom to fit the tour around your budget and your timescale.

You will be guided to ‘must-see’ destinations as well as more hidden places, you will experience first-hand, a traditional Irish farm, local food production processes and produce your very own coffee-table ‘keepsake’ book of your experience!

Best Wine Bar & Coffee House in Ireland

Outstanding hospitality and music will be found in this amazing place, which is filled with great people, fantastic music, and great food. If your going to Westport, you have to make this the place to visit!

My favourite place in Westport

What a gem tucked away on Brewery Lane. It is an experience in itself. Usually have a great variety of wines within all budgets. It is cosy and you will always end up chatting to others who have discovered the uniqueness of this place.

A must to visit!

Myself & my husband, happened across the gallery by chance & it was one of the best finds ever! If like us you want a break from the pub & trad music scene, it's the place to go. Wonderfully hosted by Tom, he knows his wines & music. The food was great, recommend the grazing board for two. We went two out of our three nights in Westport. Will be back anytime we are in the area. Thanks Tom

Understated excellence!

Had a fantastic evening in this little gem of an establishment. Fantastic selection of wines in addition to a superb and distinctive cheeseboard produced by local artisans. This place has a real charm and relaxed atmosphere including a superb collection of vinyl records and some pretty cool board games. The décor is clean and simple and the ambience is bustling and laid back at the same time. Tom (the owner) is a real gent and knows his wines and music and most importantly he is an excellent host. If you visit Westport you have got to pay the gallery a visit.

Potentially the highlight of my whole trip to Ireland

This place is just such a gem. Their tagline says it all "For free thinkers, wine drinkers, and vinyl lovers" or something like that. I love everything about this place. And the fellow who owns it is the consummate host, but in an offbeat way that adds even more character to a place that already has it in spades. An excellent selection of wines and coffees for both immediate consumption or to bring as a gift/souvenir, a treasure trove of used books and vinyls, comfortable couches, and of course the cheese boards, this place is equally perfect for a family dinner, a philosophical debate, or a cozy afternoon reading or doing work on your own. Cannot praise The Gallery enough!

We look forward to hosting you on our first photography tour!
