    No, it's because when we (I) reply we don't always notice what forum a post is in. Plus I wanted to give a thumbs up to the Irish contingent.

    not really aware of any facilities in dublin or belfast even, but they must be there.
    I know that London and England in general is a hotbed for B&W photography. And I plan to spend as much time over there as we can, but my home base will be Dublin.

    They would be a good start point for getting supplies (at least by post!)
    Ilford also operate a web shop.

    Perhaps others may be able to chip-in with any "bricks & mortar" shops in Ireland.

    This may be a longshot but the RPS (Royal Photographic Society) operate regional organisations, they may have one in Eire/Dublin - have a look on their website. I am sure they would welcome an email enquiry from you, even as a non-member. If they have an Eire region most will probably be digital shooters but even the region that I attend has people who have shot film etc and respect what/how I shoot. Worth a try.

    Also, another forum site called Film and Darkroom User (FADU) may be worth looking at for Eire based contacts.

    Enjoy your time there, a great city & do visit the Guinness brewery!
    Thanks for the tips!

    Ian, are you saying that even Ilford films are more expensive there than here? I can certainly stock up.

    Ireland's VAT (sales tax) is 23% so higher than the 20% in the UK and all films are cheaper in the US anyway even Ilford so you'll save very considerably, but of course you will be limited to what you can carry in your hand/checked baggage. Check out some prices you'll be rather surprised.

    Ah. So I was considering buying Delta 400 as a roll and putting it in a bulk loader and taking it with me, rolling out my films as I needed them. You're saying I should absolutely do that.

    100%, 200% , 300% what ever you think you'll need, leave it in Ilfords packaging unopened though when flying.

    I have a lead bag I use, and I'll take it in carry-on, of course. Thanks for this; I would never have thought Ilford was cheaper there than here.

    Chris I think Delta 400 35 mm film is cheaper in Gunns camera shop in Dublin than it is in England.

    Welcome to Dublin Chris, hopefully you will make it along to one of our meets sometime soon.

    For a city of it's size, Dublin is very well serviced by photographic retailers. For film users, between John Gunn's camera shop on Camden St, near the city centre, http://www.johngunn.ie/ and Peter's (the fizz) http://www.thephotoshop.ie/ there is little, if anything, that cannot be easily obtained. Prices are very competitive vs UK and on-line prices, and both are a pleasure to do business with (no connection - just a satisfied customer!).

    There are two locations that I know of where you can hire high-end scanners for scanning film:http://fire.ie/ and http://www.galleryofphotography.ie/.

    I should also mention the Dublin Camera Club, http://www.dublincameraclub.ie/ . It has a full range of resources, including two fully equipped darkrooms, one of which has a 5x4 De Vere enlarger, and is also on Camden St.

    Gerry
