Welcome to Wild Atlantic Way Photography Tours.

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.

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 exciting ‘off-beat’ places, and experience first-hand a traditional Irish hill farm, artisan producers and make your very own coffee-table ‘keepsake’ book of your Wild Atlantic Way journey.

Tour groups have exclusive use of The Gallery – Ireland’s 1st ‘All Natural’ Wine & Tapas Bar, for their ‘wine-down’ evenings, where we carry on the photography critique and training, whilst dining in style!


Week long workshops are very intensive and include evening sessions on digital darkroom processes, exploring which program may work best for you. We also include a print and frame service, whereby you can have your images printed on archival quality paper and framed for sale in our gallery space. This is an exclusive service to our week-long tour guests.

You will also complete our bite-sized course throughout the week, learning all the essentials of photography, including aperture, shutter speed, ISO, depth of field, composition as well as various software applications.

Evenings are spent discussing the days shoot, what worked, what could be improved upon. We also look into the digital darkroom, exploring a range of programs, designed as an introduction to editing, including Photoshop, Affinity Photo and Perfect Photo Suite.

We cover cloning, how to stitch multiple photos seamlessly together, HDR photography, portrait retouching and other useful digital techniques, designed to help you get the most out of your hobby and to serve as an introduction to more advanced techniques.

Have your images printed, framed and put on sale in The Wild Atlantic Gallery here in Westport, Co Mayo.
