Ireland Photo Retreat

May 29, 2025 to June 9, 2025

Keep watching this page for details about an upcoming photography retreat to Ireland.  This is more than just a scenic tour of well-trodden sites.  The retreat is an opportunity to go off the beaten path, learn how to see like an artist, and to create images that are unique to one’s view of the world – all while getting introduced to the history, culture, and cuisine of Ireland with new friends that share your passion for the arts.

All types of cameras and experience levels are welcome, though most folks nowadays are taking advantage of the convenience and power of their smartphones.  So the retreat is ideal for beginners who want to take better photographs without getting bogged down with technical obstacles.  Indeed, the retreat is an extension of the workshops Xiomaro has been teaching over the past seven years for the U.S. National Park Service and presenting at many local community organizations.  His workshops are often filled to capacity with waiting lists and have been covered by the news media.

The retreat in Ireland will feature illustrated in-class instruction followed by outings to apply what was learned.  Xiomaro and his assistant will accompany the group to answer questions, to inspire, and to give further instruction and constructive feedback.

As it will be a 12-day retreat (two of those days will be travel days), there will be plenty of time to go deep into artistic principles and techniques with plenty of interesting subject matter to photograph.  As seen in Xiomaro’s photographs below, Ireland offers many fascinating opportunities to photograph architecture, landscapes, colorful towns, historical and cultural sites, and the welcoming people of this ancient island nation.

The retreat will be based in Tullamore, which is in the center of Ireland.  Here’s a video about County Offaly where the town is located.

All photographs are available for exhibition and purchase. Contact Xiomaro
