Bundoran Surfing, Surf and Turf Ireland Images


Surf and Turf

Bundoran is the Surf City of Donegal, and perhaps of Ireland. This is a coastal holiday town in northwest Ireland, about eight miles from Rossnowlagh, forty miles from Easky, 150 miles from Shannon and three hours from Dublin. The centerpiece of Bundoran is The Peak, a reef breaking in a rivermouth cove that can be a barreling right and a smoking left when the conditions cooperate. But The Peak isn’t the only game in town, according to the surf experts at Wikipedia: “ In recent times Bundoran has become synonymous with Irish surfing.  Bundoran is unusual in that it has Surf breaks suitable for beginners and people looking to improve as well as world class surf for those who really know how to carve up the waves.”

TurfnSurf Lodge & Surf School is run with traditional Irish aloha by locals Killian, Mary and their partner Patrick (better known as Po). Located in the center of Bundoran overlooking beautiful Donegal bay and The Peak, the lodge is a turn of the century Victorian building with high ceilings and beautiful bay windows.

The philosophy of TurfnSurf Lodge & Surf School is to provide good quality, affordable, clean and comfy accommodation with a splash of good humor. On top of traditional hospitality, TurfnSurf Lodge & Surf School will introduce beginners to the great sport of surfing, and expose more experienced surfers to the true jewels of the Emerald Isle.

TurfnSurf offers beginner to advanced surf lessons along with surfboard and wetsuit rental. All their instructors are experienced surfers with full Irish Surfing Association (ISA) and/or British Surfing Association (BSA) approved qualifications. They are friendly and fun with safety being the cornerstone to all their surfing activities.

Lodging, surf lessons and also surf tours. The newest offering at TurfnSurf is a road trip to several locations in Ireland. The lads will pick you up at the airport or train station if you wish, and whisk you and three friends to any of the three main surfing regions: Donegal, Sligo and Clare.
