For those who don't have their own Darkroom, check out www.galleryofphotography.ie in Dublin.

Yearly membership is only 40 and you can hire the darkroom for 15 for three hours (10 for students).

Chemicals are provided and they cater for 35mm up to 5x4.

I have used it in the past and it is an excellent facility. They also have a large range of photography books on sale at discounts to members.
