Great surf school that offers lessons for all levels. Everytime I go back I learn something new and feel like my surfing is improving (while still having fun!). They also have a great selection of boards and the rented wetsuits are in good condition.

Can’t say more! Very professional staff! You must check them out if you are in the area. Great surfing instructors, indoor climbing for the kids! Archery and lots more. We have two lovely days in the area. Very close to the Cliffs of Moher
