Food Styling and Photography Workshop in East County Clare, Ireland

If you’ve come to this space before, you know how much I am attached to Ireland. That started even before I married an Irish man and traveled to Ireland on numerous occasions. I love the country. I love the energy of the place and its people. I love that I have family there now forever.

So needless to say I was honored when a few months ago, Angela Ritchie who runs Ace Camps, asked whether I’d do a food styling and photography workshop in Ireland with her.

The answer was Yes, please! Angela’s workshops are the dream comes true to those with a traveling and creative soul!

We elaborated on the idea, and eventually came with a lovely estate where we’d stay, dates, and a wonderful theme:

  1. Hello Béa;
    Hello; I live in the Dom. Republic and have been following your blog for a while now; I love you aesthetic sense and your pictures. I do not cook a lot but even bought your book! I took an adventure -for me it is!- and made the millet apple muffins and they were great!!!I loved them and so did my husband. So I’ll keep trying….
    Thank you and God bless you and your family . I am sure the workshop is going to be great.

  2. Hi Bea, what about people who live in England, could you tell me about the price without flight… ?
    Amazing pics as always 🙂

  3. Hello Marlene, thank you. The price listed is without flight. US$ 2250 for the 4 day workshop/5 nights. Hope this helps!

  4. Hi Elysia, thanks for your note. The closest airport is Shanno. It is close to Limerick and Galway City. Angela will surely have more information for you. Let me see what she says.

  5. Julie, I am sorry you feel this way. It’s obviously not meant to come across this way.

  6. The charges are completely comparable to other cooking/photography workshops. I am offended on Bea’s behalf by the suggestion that because some in the world are in “crisis”, she somehow does not deserve the going rate for her talent.

  7. @Julie
    In a world in crisis a photography workshop is not something we acn’t live without. I’d better protest against bread price than this… I mean, the world is in crisis, but champagne is still expensive, there are things that even in a world not in crisis I couldn’t afford!

  8. Samantha, there are cheaper photography workshops, just look at the Plate To Page ones that are held by four tutors, the one they are doing in Ireland costs half the sum for 2,5 days. Not that I want to offend Bea, quite the contrary but I just saw the announcements for that workshop and noticed the prize. Just so that you know…

  9. Dear Bea, I would really like to participate in your workshop, but unfortunately according to Acecamp’s website, it’s sold out 🙁 – I would love to subscribe for a waiting list, if any, but I could not found any contact details to the organizer. Can you help me? Thank you very much in advance, Kata from Hungary

  10. Dear Kata,

    Thanks so much for your note and wanting to participate. I will put you in touch with Angela who organizes the logistics of the workshop. Thank you. Will be in touch!

  11. This trip sounds amazing!!! I would love to come and would love to bring my mom as well… are you offering a non-student rate like you did for the France trip? Thanks so much!

  12. Hi Bea, I’d love to meet you in Clare when you are here next month if you have a wee bit of spare time? Or, perhaps I could come to your workshop for one day? I have just agreed to a publishing deal with Roost…delighted to be in the company of such amazing talent as yourself! Looking forward to your second book. All Best, Imen xx
