Had a lesson here and a lesson somewhere else in bundoran a few weeks later. This was head and shoulders better. Lots of space for getting changed. Good wetsuits and given booties as standard (makes a big difference for softies like me!). Staff are genuinely interested in getting you surfing (the other place we went for a similar price were...

Top rate surf lessons from surf world. We booked in conjunction with the Rougey Lodge hostel and got a good rate on both. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable and are keen to help out newbies. Would love to visit again!

My first surf experience and couldnt have picked a better company. Richard the owner was very friendly and Surf coach Ciaran looked after the whole group really well.. overall an amazing experience for a first timer who can't even swim. Will be returning very soon.

Despite the surf not being great on the day I enjoyed the experience having not surfed for over a year! I was me with Aussie Briony who was really helpful and assisted me with hiring my... More

Safe hands to leave children with. They love the surf camp and have so much fun. Great instructors and loads of encouragement and banter. Highly recommended.

Shop is in mainstreet of town and you are driven in a small van to the beach. Seatbelts of van were broken. Changing facilities at shop are good. Unfortunately no showers. All staff are very Nice and helpful and the surfing is Great fun.

I also love the the way you might just order say a bar of wax or something small like that and when you the parcel you will find a little... More

Surfworld has it all, local knowledge, lessons, great location, quality equipment hire, great stock in the shop, friendly staff (Bri, The auzzie blonde is an absolute babe!) (Richie is a bit of a dreamboat too to be fair, i left feeling very conflicted about who i was.... ). So with the hot staff, the ever present banter and the cold... More
