“Fantastic stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2011

Myself and my boyfriend decided to check out the surf & hostel standers in ireland, and we were very impressed. After being upgraded to a private room (thanks Cillian!) inc private bathroom we were delighted. Had a great time with the staff, and enjoyed a beer(belgium of course) or two with Pierre. Would highly recommend it to all, and i will defo be back.
ps the surfing was amazing too!

A group of 5 girls went to Bundoran to see a band play (and a girly weekend - all 20ish). I never stayed in Hostel before and was anxious... however i'm now converted!!! What a fantastic place we found. Great price, we were given a dorm for 6 and only 5 of us were there. Killian said he wouldnt put anyone in with us as it wasnt too busy!! Cost €100 for the room. Clean room with private bathroom, Killian couldnt have helped us more, from booking, check -in and even doing a Tea run in the morning :) The common room had great comfy sofa's, Communal PC / WIFI, fridge facilities and games. Beds were comfy, room and bathroom clean, and great view from front of building. Disappointed i didnt make it to breakie, but it smelled great. Breakie served 8 - 10.30, but we were offered it after 11 if we wanted some... even offered Tea later if we wanted some.

Location was perfect, 30 seconds to a few good pubs / and a night club. Great barfood in bar to the right (facing ocean). Shop 1 min walk away. Beach is literally accross the road.

Thanks to all the staff that make this place wonderful.

We didnt try the surf lessons, however next time i promise i'll try :) Will def recommend this place for anyone heading to Donegal.

P.s. Wrap up warm, bundoran is cool.

  • Liked — Staff, location and atmosphere
  • Disliked — The fact we weren't dragged out of bed to try surf lessons :)

I stayed at TurfnSurf Lodge & Surf School in Bundoran in Sept 2008 for two nights. I was travelling on my own after deciding in my very, very late 30's (ok 41) that I would take some surfing lessons. I arrived after a five hour drive and was immediately made most welcome by one of the owners, Killian. My room was spotless and comfortable with a private bathroom All rooms have wi-fi but there is a computer in the lounge for guest to use free of charge. The lounge is beautiful with large comfy couches from where you can look out the large bay window at the massive expanse of sea. Breakfast is simple but very healthy and filling. The lessons were very well supervised by the ever patient and understanding Killian and Billy, who both gave very clear and precise instruction. I can't praise the lodge enough and would not hesitate to recommend them. I look forward to visiting again.
