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.
