Surf in Ireland? You are kidding me! And isn’t it cold?

No, not kidding, the west coast of Ireland is the very first landing point for those Atlantic swells, Ireland has terrific surf conditions, many many surf beaches and lots of uncrowded waves. The Gulf Stream currents keep the water between 12-15 degrees all year round: Yes, you need a wetsuit, but it’s a small price to pay for the cleanest, greenest water you will ever surf.

I’m a bit older- a college graduate. Can I do this trip?
Yes. Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome, and there is no age limit or preference at the top end. If you are doing the surf/sports experience, you need to be able to swim.

What’s the accommodation like?
You get your own room in a cottage, sharing the house with one or two other people. All of the cottages have all mod cons; these cottages have been given a four star rating by the Irish accommodation approvals board. There’s a kitchen and living room, TV and video. Your heat and light is included in the fees. The cottages are two minutes from the centre, and four minutes from the waterfront, beaches and Main Street.
