Wonderful tour of some unique and photogenic spots. George knows some great spots and is easy to talk to about cameras and technique. We were looking for some off the beaten path spots and we found them.

Great Custom Tour This review is long overdue. We booked a private, extended, all day custom tour with George last summer and it was great for me an my partner. He handled picking out all the stops, made changes based on the weather, and successfully avoided all the tour bus crowds. It was quite nice not having to worry about planning and driving all the day long, and he took us to some very nice photo spots we likely would not have found. He was a great, friendly tour guide, knowledgeable photographer and safe driver on those tiny winding roads. Would definitely recommend booking a tour with him!

Engagement & Couples Photoshoot - June 2023 We booked the engagement & couples photoshoot with George and had the best experience! Our photos turned out absolutely beautiful. During the photo tour we also got to see some of the most scenic parts of Dingle, George really knew all of the best places to go. We highly recommend this George & Dingle Darkroom!

Memorable Experience! George was not only incredibly passionate about his hometown, he was very knowledgeable on all of the unique photo spots to capture a memorable experience! His knowledge of technique and technical aspects really shined as he helped me with both. It was a great learning experience!

Do it!!! George is awesome and brought that special/personal touch to our experience driving us around Slea Head Drive and used his years of experience to show us great views and tidbits of information along the way. My family really enjoyed the whole experience and we are very grateful we found George!! He was very helpful with explaining how to use our cell phones to take better pictures. He took many great pictures of our family with the beautiful scenary that we will treasure forever.

Great Experience! Even though the afternoon was rainy and grey, George did an excellent job of not only helping me to understand my camera more, but also took me to the most beautiful areas around Dingle. He asked me ahead of time what kind of camera I had and with just a few knowledgeable questions, completely planned our time for maximum results. No matter what your photography skills are, I feel that any time spent with George is well worth it!

Great teacher George was professional and patient. He met me at my (low) skill level and improved my use of my cell phone. I also learned about composition and depth- of- field and took not-so-bad photos by the end of the day. Recommend!

A terrific experience indeed! Having been to Ireland once and knowing the many opportunities I would have to take landscape photos again, I was seeking out an expert who could guide me around the Dingle peninsula and offer professional input that might improve confidence and get more from my camera. My experience with George at Dingle Darkroom couldn't have been better. Exactly what I wanted to improve my photography skills and learn more about the area. George had a curriculum in mind, he immediately began to access my photography knowledge, and then appropriately offered suggestions both for how to take and where to take photos. I feel more confident about taking and sharing my photos and look forward to my next adventure in Ireland with George leading the way.

Scenic photography tour Slea Head George was an excellent guide who gave my two daughters immense knowledge about their cameras and how to capture excellent quality photos. In addition to helping the girls with their cameras he gave us a lot of great information on other sites to see while staying in Dingle.

Fantastic way to see Dingle area while learning how to take great photos! What a great way to learn more about photography and the area. George was a patient, thorough teacher who ensures that everyone gets the experience they want, all while sharing his Irish hospitality.
