Castles, Gardens and Whiskey Discovery Tour of Northern Ireland, September 2023

Saturday 9th - Friday 15th September 2023

Experience an intimate 7 day tour with Irish National Tour Guide Con O’Leary on a fully guided luxury motor coach of no more than 14 people exploring the Castles, Grand Gardens and Whiskeys of  Northern Ireland. Get an overview of the current and past political situation in Northern Ireland.  Experience a working sheep farm and get to hold a baby lamb.  Glenshane Country Farm is a working sheep farm owned by Jamese McCloy. Four generations of Jamese’s family have been sheep farmers, each more determined than the last to preserve the epic landscape around them.

This is an in depth tour of Northern Ireland with a very experienced local guide where we will have lots of opportunities to get off the beaten track and discover the real Ireland and meet with the locals.

Baggage Limitations
The interior of the coach will have limited space for baggage. Therefore each person will be limited to one piece of luggage/suitcase (to ride in the under-coach hold), one small carry on tote bag (or purse), plus a photography equipment bag.

Extend your Stay
Ireland has a wealth of things to see and do. This tour has been designed with variety in mind for the photographer tourist to provide both urban and wild destinations and includes stops to historic sites and opportunities to see wildlife. Consider adding additional days prior to (or after) to see sights you will not visit on this tour.

Camera Gear
It is tempting to bring all your camera gear on such an excursion. However take time to ponder what you really need and cull out some of your gear to keep your weight down. Light-weight tripods may be more beneficial than large heavy ones. Two lenses (three at the most) should be more than sufficient. Most camera battery chargers are adapted to the voltage in USA and Ireland, but you will want wall socket adapters that fit the Irish wall sockets. Be sure your plug will actually plug into the adapter as fittings for both can mismatch.
