Capture the wild at Knockranny House Hotel, Westport

Knockranny House Hotel & Spa, Co. Mayo

A weekend of walking and photography on 27th and 28th August 2021.

Discover the wilds of Mayo with the first walking and photography weekend taking place at Knockranny House Hotel in association with Terra Firma on 27th and 28th August 2021.

The Wild Nephin National Park is alive with wonders and with Terra Firma as your guide, guests will get to experience lesser known areas of this unspoilt wilderness. Consisting of 15,000 hectares of Atlantic blanket bog and mountainous terrain, dominated by the Nephin Beg mountain range, this wild landscape offers a sanctuary for plants and animals, providing valuable biodiversity.

Led by Terra Firma and photographer Joshua Nueva you’ll go off the beaten track on the 4-5 hour walk, exploring some of the lesser visited areas of the park allowing for some amazing photographic opportunities of the breath-taking landscape, dramatic views and big sky country of this spectacular location.

Perfect for budding photographers, Joshua Nueva is one of Ireland's leading adventure photographers & videographers and will guide guests on the best use of settings, lenses and light for their own equipment. With only a limited number of places available guests will have plenty of time for questions with both Joshua and the walking guide and whether you're a complete beginner, or a keen hobbyist, guests will level up their photography skills and improve their creative eye to produce Instagram-worthy content.
