    Favourite locations in Ireland

    Hi all,

    As it would appear, that we have a good geographic spread (Laois, Wicklow, Meath, Cork) of APUG members here in Ireland, and we have our outing to look forward to, I was thinking that it might be good to share some of our personal favourite locations around the country so that we might get some hidden gems from each other. My personal favourite would be the Hook Peninsula (especially around the lighthouse), there is a great variety of subjects down there: Landscapes, Derelict buildings, Castles, Lighthouse, Rocky seascapes, beaches, forest parks etc. I also love the west around Letterfrack, Leenane & Kylemore Abbey.

    Anywhere you get to see "another pile of rocks" is good.

    Only been to Ireland once (3 weeks of fun), but I was never at a loss for photographic material anywhere I went. I think the best images I made were of the people in and around the pubs. Countless opportunities to celebrate the Irish people.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    No shortage of piles of rocks, some of them are even organised to form a building

    I love Carlingford in County Louth.

    You can do lots of water sports on the Lough or hike up Sleive Foy. Or if you want to relax there are plenty of pubs and restaurants. Some nice historic sites also like the Castle and Abbey.

    Yes and about 20 mins on the Dart and you've got several magnificent ones. It's called Dublin.

    Yes Dingle is a great town. From Dingle you can cycle or drive over Conner Pass to Castlegregory, another little gem.

    Unfortunately I have not been to the Burren yet but hope to this summer along with the Cliffs of Moher.

    I dont have any favourite places as such, I do like nice simple landscapes like inland lakes, bogland, the burren, lines of pineforest in the morning mist. Seascapes like achill island. I also like decaying scenery like dublin docklands [now disapearing] and rusting ships like the quay in westport. I like evertything from horsefairs to fruitmarkets and some old time barber shop on a sidestreet in the back of beyond

    Great thread though, I'm looking forward to following this one.
