The Surf camp

Surf camp Ireland is located in Bundoran, overlooking the world famous surf break known as 'The Peak'. Bundoran is located only 30 minutes from Sligo Town where you can find both airport, bus- and train station.

The region around Bundoran offers great conditions for surfing all year around and is suitable for surfers of all levels. Winter (October to April) is the best surf season for experienced surfers with big clean swells coming from the Atlantic Ocean.

The summer season (May to September) is perfect for beginners due to the warmer water and smaller swells. Regardless of conditions though, Bundoran is ideally suited as a surfing destination for both beginner and advanced surfers as it is situated close to several world class reefs as well as gentler, more sheltered beaches.

Aside from surfing, Bundoran is a great location for cycling, hiking, paragliding, snorkeling and scuba diving.

Surf school

The Surf school is completely mobile. Using the camp's 2 jeeps, lessons can be held at the most suitable wave up or down the coast, depending on daily weather conditions.

Depending on your level of surfing, the surf instructors will guide you and help you to improve your surfing skills. The instructors will be in the water with you at all times and will also carry a waterproof video recorder. Back in The Lodge in the evening, you can analyse the day's video footage together.

We guarantee that after one week at our surf school the complete beginner will be able to surf and the experienced surfer will have improved greatly.

The following is included for students attending the surf school:

  • Accommodation at the surf camp - standard or upgraded
  • 2-3h surf school, 5 days per week
  • Pick up/ drop off at Sligo airport, bus or train station
  • All surf equipment needed

Surfari

Surfari is a great option for experienced surfers. Every day there is a different swell, a different wind etc. This doesn't matter if you book a Surfari with us. Every day you will be accompanied by a professional local surf guide who will show you the best breaks of the region.

Your surf guide will tell you all about the spots, how to get in and out, the currents, type of wave, etc. The surf guide will also bring a waterproof video recorder and will take footage of you surfing the local breaks every day.

Apart from providing entertainment, this video analysis is a great way to improve your surfing skills.

Within 30 minutes of Bundoran, there is 10 world class reef breaks as seen regularly in surfing movies and magazines. There is also a great selection of fast and mellow beaches with a multitude of breaks. Your surf guide will take you to one surf spot per day allowing you to explore the local breaks yourself for the rest of the day.
