Views of Ireland

Lighthouses of Ireland photographer and tour leader John Eagle

Author of 2 lighthouse books spent over 20 years flying around Ireland's coastline taking pictures of lighthouses and local scenery including maritime views. I regularly give slide shows of my work at which I sign copies of my Collins Press book which was reprinted in 2013, the 2010 print having sold out. I also conduct workshops to show how to compose better pictures

....'Eagle's photography is so precise you can almost hear the pounding surf' Jennifer Henderson, Picture Postcard Collector magazine

I was the first to make a postcard of each Irish lighthouse, going on dozens of helicopter flights and boat trips. I did it because it was great fun

Each year I conduct tours round the Irish coast visiting the lighthouses up close and personal, like the Hook above left and Skellig Michael on the Southern Lighthouse Tour. We stay in lighthouses for part of the time, go on visits inside them and take boat trips to view the offshore ones like Fastnet, Inisheer, Little Samphire Island , Bull Rock, Eagle Island. If I can't get you in them I can get you up close to them. I have been running these tours since 2009 and have collected lots of comments. Watch a video I shot from the tour boat visiting the Fastnet

your enjoyment is my pleasure ..John Eagle

I am a registered Irish artist, and have shown my work in Dublin, Cork, Dungarvan, Kenmare, Beara and Massachusetts.

My oil paintings are inspired by the mountains and coast line of the Beara Peninsula. I live full time here. I paint from memories I have, usually times gone by when men rowed their boats and farmers gathered their hay with pitchforks

I was the first person to make a postcard of every lighthouse on the Irish coastline like the mega selling 3A Fastnet card (centre below)
