I once went with some friends for a surfing lesson and we were very disappointed and felt we were robbed. The waves were very small and not enough to learn to surf as well as waiting long to catch a wave. But that did not matter to the surf school and what they want is money and nothing else. Some...

Hi Uxio, We just noticed your review of us. Are you sure you have the correct surf school? We don't have any young blonde boys working for us and if the swell is ever too small, we actually cancel our surf lessons instead of taking you out into flat surf. We run a very good surf school and have had... More

Took a lesson with my daughters 9 and 11. Instructors were excellent and everything well organised. Even as total beginners we found it great fun and will be back.

Took a family surf lesson with two kids in tow, age 10 and 8. Instructors were patient and lesson was perfectly managed to suit the whole family. Focus was safety first, fun at all times. Everyone was catching waves and standing (some for longer than others- damn kids and their low centre of gravity, dexterity, flexibility, no fear etc etc)... More

Went here twice in one week with adults and teenagers, they were happy to give us group discounts and accommodating for us in general. Staff are good craic, Punk is a funny chap indeed. It's a great experience for kids, and they will take you to the best beach depending on the surf. The only reason I didn't give 5... More

We went on a beginner's surfing lesson here. There was just us and one other couple with 2 instructors so we got really hands on tuition which was excellent. Everything was provided so we just had to turn up with a towel and swimming gear. We suited up in the shop and were driven to a nearby beach. On the... More

I'm actually posting this under my wife's Facebook page as I don’t have one but suffice to say I had a great introduction to Ireland’s wild west coast surfing thanks to the lads at Surfworld in Bundoran. They are a friendly bunch who put a complete novice at his ease and spent a lot of time in freezing conditions to... More
