How did you like the accommodation?

     

Stayed here from 25 - 29 June. I got a triple room en-suit. My sister was supposed to come with me but couldn't make it, so I had the room to myself. This was fine as there were many other solo travelers and it was easy to make friends and have a laugh. The room was very clean, bright and spacious with a gorgeous view of the sea. The staff are second to non. Every single one of them were so friendly, warm, helpful and great fun! I had such an awesome time out surfing. The instructors were excellent and very helpful, giving great advice to each individual. There was also a free trip up to Glencar waterfall which the driver Sean went out of his way to show our group the mountains and sights which we would otherwise have missed, which was very much appreciated.

All in all, I will definitely come back here asap. It is excellent value for money, but its really the staff that run the place that are worth staying here for alone.

The Peak

The Peak

Level: Advanced

An iconic world famous reef break. Barreling left and right A to frame. Best at low tide but can work at high tide. For the experienced surfer only.

Inside Left

Inside Left

Level: Advanced

Very hollow left hander reef break, that works at low tide. For the experienced surfer only.

Tullan

Tullan

Level: All Levels

Best at low tide and the only place to catch a wave when everywhere else is flat. But be careful if The Peak or other reef breaks are working Tullan will be a washing machine wipe out and dangerous. Good for beginners in small surf and more experienced surfers can tuck in at the cliff.

As the Stormriders Surf Guide says “Donegal Bay is one of the few places in Europe to warrant the title ‘a surfer’s paradise"

Tullan Strand surf beach in Bundoran is one of the most consistent beginner's waves in the country. It is the perfect place to start, and is great for intermediates with a perfect wedge appearing off the cliff.

A few km's north is Rossnowlagh, said to be the first beach ever to be surfed in Ireland back in the 60s. It’s a perfect place for beginners and intermediate surfers to polish their skill. Don’t forget to have a drink in the legendary Surfers Bar before you leave!

In the centre of Bundoran town is The Peak, one of Ireland's best wave. Numerous World and European surfing competitions have been held here, it’s a perfect place to watch the locals rip it up.

40 minutes south of Bundoran, in Sligo, is the surf promenade at Strandhill, a very popular surf beach with surf shops and the famous Strand Bar.

For intermediates and advanced there are countless choices, it’s all about exploring and finding out for yourself. Mullaghmore head is Ireland’s premier big wave spot, made famous when local tow-in surfers caught 60 foot waves. Drive further west in Sligo and you will reach Easkey, home to Ireland’s most famous wave.
