The Surf camp

Our Surf camp Ireland options are located on the West Coast of Ireland, overlooking Ireland's world famous wild Atlantic waves.

Ireland's surf 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, Ireland 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, Ireland is a great location for cycling, hiking, paragliding, snorkeling and scuba diving.

Surf school

The Surf schools in Ireland are completely mobile. Using the surf school's vans, 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 helping you get the most out of your lesson.

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

While all surf schools have a different set up most tend to offer the following:

  • 2-3h surf school lessons, 5 days per week
  • All surf equipment provided
  • Lessons all year round. From November to March lessons can be just on the weekends


Surfari is a great option for experienced surfers and some of our surf schools offer this option. 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. Some surf guides 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.

Ireland has a great selection of world class reef breaks and 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.

The following is often included in the Surfari:

  • Accommodation at the surf camp - Standard or Upgraded
  • Surfaris with a local guide every day of your stay
  • Pick up/ drop off at airport, bus or train station
  • All surf equipment needed
  • Transportation to the best waves of the day
  • Video analysis of all surfari sessions
