An amazing corner of the country to visit... their weekend shuttle bus from Dublin is the perfect way to escape the city and experience surfing in Ireland. The staff are always super friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. They will ensure you have a great time surfing and great weekend overall in Bundoran. Highly recommended!

Bought the package for the August bank holiday (3 nights, 3 lessons) and had a lot of fun. The people are really welcoming, friendly and funny in this place. I really enjoyed everything: the activities (surf and kayaking), the group, the place, the barbecue, the night out... Perfect!
