The weekend trip is a great experience to disconnect and have fun with friends. They organize all for your and they're very flexible to adapt to your plans. Amazing surf and waves also! The staff is really cool!

This is the perfect weekend getaway with friends or on your own. Bundoran is lovely, the surf instructors are really good and it's well organised. We arrived there on a Friday evening, went out to the local pub Chasin Bull for a pint and then woke up early the next 2 days for a surf. Highly recommended!

Very friendly relaxed atmosphere and 2 minutes away from the town. Would recommend to anyone, amateur surfer or otherwise. Went with a work party of 10 people, 2 days of surfing and a trip to the Donegal brewery which was brilliant (if youre a craft beer fan, which we all were). Cant wait to go back!

Perfect for a group of 7/8. We received...

An amazing corner of the country to visit... their weekend shuttle bus from Dublin is the perfect way to escape the city and experience surfing in Ireland. The staff are always super friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. They will ensure you have a great time surfing and great weekend overall in Bundoran. Highly recommended!

We had a kitchen to prepare meals if we wanted a nice living room to chill and several bathrooms. We also booked one day of surfing and even though there were not...
