    Ireland in January?

    OK, I know going to a Marine climate in January isn't the first choice for most. But a friend invited me to go to Ireland with her over New Years. I know she wants to visit Dublin and Devil's Causeway. What recommendations do people have? Thanks!

    Do you mean Giant's Causeway? In Northern Ireland?



    If so, it is a wonderful and spectacular place to photograph. Might be a tad chilly in January though! It is a good 6-8 hour drive from Dublin as I remember.

    Fintan: If I bring my TLR I'll be shooting whatever ISO 100 film I have at the time. If I bring my 4x5, I'll shoot probably Tri-X or Efke 100. Thanks!

    Dublin has many wonderful Georgian buildings. So if you're interested in architecture then there'll be plenty. Of course Ireland is also an island so there's plenty of coastline - the southwest is particularly dramatic.

    You should know that there is a danger that if you go to Dublin first, then the hospitality may just trap you for the duration.

    That's very true. I came to Dublin for a 4 week project in the Summer: I'm still here. It's a great place to be trapped though :-)

    Ireland in January is warmer than New England in January. You may encounter a brief snowfall, but it melts in a day or 2. The best aprt is----very few tourists so you'll have most of the place to yourself. I have been there 20+ times and I have only discovered a small part of the country.

    My recommendation, assuming you are landing in Dublin, is to enjoy the pubs and photograph the city with a few brief outings to the country. If you really want to see Ireland, land in Shannon and stay in the West of Ireland.


    Slainte (pronounced "slontcha") is Irish for "cheers", that should start you on your way
