I am going on a short photo trip to Ireland next March and plan to stay for 4 days. I rent a car and want to visit great photo places in Ireland.

What places can you recommend going to and at what time of day?

I usually search on flickr for interesting places near a location. And use TPE to get an idea of light direction etc. – Vikas Dec 25 '11 at 14:06
@mattdm I would suggest moving it to the travel stackexchange site. – ab.aditya Dec 26 '11 at 8:09
@ab.aditya: I wasn't aware of a Travel Stackexchange Site. I guess this question would fit there better. – juergen d Dec 26 '11 at 8:52
My wife and I recently spent 9 days bike touring in the Connemara and Burren areas around Galway. Here are the photos I took: They should give you a feel for the terrain of the central West coast. If you have any questions about specific locations where the shots were taken I can probably answer them. – Kennet Belenky Dec 27 '11 at 4:42

If you have access to an iPad, Trey Ratcliff of Stuck in Customs has a free app called Stuck on Earth. This uses crowdsourcing to choose popular locations and photos. Like Google Earth/Maps, you can zoom in on locations, and with the app, click on spots and view photos taken there.

You can take Shane's advice, have a look at south west Ireland, and then click through images to help choose specific locations you want to visit.

Go to the south west of the country and head for Kerry, specifically Dingle and continue west and drive around the peninsula. There's some amazing views there. It won't be great if it's a bad day though!
