    List of photographic suppliers in Ireland

    In order to help each other in the Irish region of Apug, I thought we should list any suppliers we have used and what goods they sell.


    For film, paper, chemicals and darkroom equipment:

    Gunns in Wexford Street Dublin are great. Louise and John are very helpful and always have time for their customers.

    Online options which I also use are www.retrophotographic.com and www.silverprint.co.uk

    Carriage can sometimes be expensive from these online suppliers so maybe post a thread and ask if other members need any supplies so you can split the carriage charge between you. I have done this and its great.


    For studio equipment:

    Contact Paddy at www.barkerphotographic.ie for all your studio equipment needs.


    Mounting Materials & Frames:

    www.framingfantastic.co.uk supply the Arqadia range of mounting boards that range from budget to Museum quality. They also sell plastic bages which can be sealed for protecting prints for sale etc.

    There are many online suppliers of mounting materials in the US but I have only found one who would send materials to Ireland and that was www.archivalmethods.com They make excellent quality Cotton Fibre mounting boards.

    Please add to this thread any suppliers you have used.

    Photographic holidays

    For anyone wishing to take a photographic tour of Ireland, check out http://www.focusonireland.com

    Focus on Ireland operate various tours in different parts of Ireland and will bring you to some great sites which are not your usual places which can get over-run with tourists. They can also tailor make a tour to suit your tastes.

    When comparing their prices to other similar tours, they are very reasonable.

    I have no financial interest in their business but I know the people involved and can only say they are decent folk.

    Gunn's Camera Shop, Dublin

    Analog supplies are not so easily obtained in Southern Ireland. With a small population here and being so close to the UK and their mail order firms, over the counter stock has never been diverse or abundant. Much less so nowadays.

    Fortunatly one shop that stands ahead of any other is Gunn’s in Dublin’s Wexford Street [Opposite Whelan’s Pub and a 5 minute walk from St Stephen’s Green]. Talk to any traditional film photographer in Dublin for 10 minutes and Gunn’s will be mentioned, such is their commitment to film.

    Nowhere would anyone find service as warm and friendly, the shop is family run and they certainly know (and love) their photography. They have a lab in-house and cover all the bases.

    Products Stocked:
    35mm: color/b+w, most brands
    MF: color/b+w, most brands
    LF: small amounts of b+w/color, phone them to order
    Darkroom: Plenty of RC/FB b+w papers
    Chemicals: Many brands of general b+w chemistry, toners etc, phone for special orders
    Gunn’s also stock second hand items, darkroom accessories, filters, tripods etc.

    Phone in Ireland 01 4781226
    Phone International + 353 1 4781226

    Do they have a website?

    Will they post to England?

    They don't have a website or email Steve, I'm sure they would post to you but as their stock originates in the UK probably I'm sure you would be better with a UK supplier. Unless of course you are coming to Ireland and want to avoid nasty x-rays etc and collect your stuff here. Essentially I posted the info for anyone visiting this country.

    Infrared film source?

    Hi all,

    I was just speaking to Gunn's (sourcing some film for a customer) and they tell me that they no longer stock Infrared film as their supplier says it's not being manufactured. They still process Infrared film but can only offer Ilford SFX.

    Does anyone know of a local (Irish) stockist - any suggestions Peter?

    Thanks

    David

    I presume you are referring to the Kodak HIE film. I think it is still being made but not being imported to Ireland anymore. I don't know of any other Irish retailers who would have it.

    Online options would be www.silverprint.co.uk or www.freestylephoto.biz

    I just gave freestyle an order yesterday for 25 rolls of 120 Efke and Rollei IR films and could have got you some HIE had I known in time. The order was dispatched today so too late to add to it, sorry.

    Peter,

    Thanks for the information. I don't need the film until August so I have time to arrange it.

    more suppliers and a questionb

    Another supplier for infrared is B+H. I am not sure what they charge for post to Ireland as I have used them in the states. They are out of NYC. I had a question for anyone out there paying mind...do you know of any labs in Dublin which process 120 B+W and color and/or 4x5 B+W and color? Thanks! L
