WordPress Tutorials

I offer WordPress Tutorials both for beginners and for people who wish to refresh their WordPress knowledge base.


Are you a complete beginner with WordPress? I can offer a day long session covering all that you need to know in order to manage your own WordPress website.

The tutorial takes place in The Hive, Carrick on Shannon, Co Leitrim however I am available to travel at a special rate. The Hive features fast broadband and has comfortable private meeting rooms which are perfect for training sessions.

Want to learn using Skype? Because of the fast broadband available in The Hive, skype learning sessions are also possible if you can’t travel for a personal tutorial.


Would you like to learn how to use WordPress better? Is there something new that you would like to concentrate on?

Are you thinking about using podcasts or videos on your website regularly?

Let me know what it is that you would like to improve and we can set up a face to face learning experience in The Hive, Carrick on Shannon, Co Leitrim.

Some of the topics that will be covered:

  • learn about themes, what’s available, how to choose one, how to customise your chosen theme
  • learn about plugins, what they are, how to choose the best ones for your needs
  • how and why to do your updates what size photos to use
  • how to write a post
  • how to create a page
  • how to structure menus

Why Carrick?

I live in the lovely rural county Leitrim, Carrick on Shannon is the main town and has great transport links. It’s an easy drive from neighbouring counties as it’s on the N4 road network and is only 2 hours from Dublin.

It is easily reached via train from Dublin on a day-return or come for a few days so that you can plan a relaxing stay over while you learn. Why not take advantage of being situated right on the River Shannon? There’s so much to do here, turn it into a mid-week break, take a cruise on the Shanon and check out Carrick’s amazing, award winning gastro pub. You could also push the boat out (excuse teh pun) and book a few nights in the luxurious and uniqu Barge Holiday Boatel, the Lovely Leitrim.
