Had a lovely stay here on a Sunday night. Staff were super welcoming and helpful. Great recommendation for dinner down the road. Nothing was too much trouble! Breakfast in the morning was a fantastic continental spread. Location of this hostel would be hard to beat, the views of the sunset were divine out the bedroom window.

super flexible, super relaxed team, excellent instructors! everybody from TurfnSurf was very helpful with anything that came up (before and during our stay), from course organisation to shuttle service and evening planning in Bandora. Pick-up from Dublin was super convenient and well organised! very good vibes, highly recommended!

We arrived pretty late, but the reception was very friendly, and the room and en-suite was clean with comfy beds. We had an excellent breakfast with our yoga&surf package and the surf lessons were interesting, and well organized. I would certainly do it again!

Brilliant setup with these guys. Great value for accommodation and surfing lessons. In the summer they have a BBQ for the guests, with live music! Great people, great atmosphere, and of course, Bundoran is just outside the door. What more could you ask for?

Absolutely excellent. Went on a College class trip, all the payments were online all I needed to do was send a few emails. They were organised and friendly, they sorted 50 of us out with great accommodation with no problem and brought us all surfing. 10/10 will be back again. They organised accomodation, surfing and travel to and from Dublin....

We booked the Wild Ireland tour with the Turf n' Surf team and it was definitely a great decision. Even if we were off season, they did everything they could to make it happen (thanks Killian!).

They were right -kitted out in winter wet suits with hoods, gloves and shoes, the girls...
