    "Brilliant fun, great teaching. Good availability of equipment, and class size was perfect. I had 4 teachers in total over the week i was staying there, the quality, energy and enthusiasm was consistent. They managed to look after me, and all the others on the class easily."

    "My brother organised a 2 hour session for the family, 11 of us, it was excellent. There was a very mixed bag of ages (8 to 55) with limited knowledge. The team at Ben's Surf Clinic where great at getting everyone involved at different levels, they really took care of us. Great fun, fantastic spot, highly recommend this company."

  • Review by Paul D from Ireland

    "I have had surf lessons in Ireland and Portugal a number of times but none compare to the lessons I had last weekend from both Ben and Mike! Even in a group of 6 they gave pointers on areas to work on after every wave! Couldn't recommend this surf school more. We all have the surfing bug after this weekend."

    "Our group had mixed experience with surfing. From beginners, to somewhat experienced surfers. I had only ever surfed once before. Ben was our instructor the first day, with Mike on the second. Both instructors displayed an incredible amount of knowledge of the waves and surfing. They were extremely personal and attentive to us. Almost every wave, they would come over and suggest improvements, as well as explaining what we were doing well. They made time in the water a priority and we were more than satisfied with our time in the water. We all came along leaps and bounds thanks to the two guys. I could not recommend them more, as well as swimming in Lahinch. Incredible value and service. Equipment is exceptional and the entire company is without fault.One of the best services and activities I have ever done in Ireland. "

  • Review by O Connor from Ireland

    "I did two lessons over two days in a group of six. Most of us had surfed before and picked up bad habits along the way however Ben and Mike did their best to get rid of these. The second day we went back they had selected boards for us based on our strengths / weaknesses shown from the previous day. Very good attention to detail in helping us become better surfers."

    "Definitely recommend them. Even though there was a group of six of us Ben always came over after each wave and gave a few pointers to look out for for the next wave. Very patient and clear advice. It was great fun and each of us felt we improved a lot, although I wouldn't be too sure for one or two of them.."

    "I cannot recommend Ben's surf clinic highly enough. I am an intermediate surfer who has spent time with other surf schools in Lanzarote, England and Portugal, so I feel I can confidently say that Ben is that rare thing: a truly outstanding teacher. The clarity, knowledge, enthusiasm, patience and professionalism which Ben and his team exude in every lesson was sufficient for me to travel back to Ireland for further coaching in the middle of winter. The equipment provided is always first class and all the coaches I have met are highly experienced surfers who are totally passionate about irish surfing and have an excellent knowledge of the west coast of Ireland. Whenever I have asked Ben's staff for further surfing advice beyond lessons, they have always been wonderfully helpful. Finally, I feel this school is genuinely capable of helping me to progress from a complete beginner to an advanced surfer, something which I believe is quite unique and as such I will continue to return. If you want surfing lessons in Ireland it's simple: go to Ben."

  • Review by Chad S

    "I thought I didn't need another surf lesson, having already done several lessons in different countries around the world. I decided on a rental but Ben allowed me to listen to the first 5 minutes of a group lesson. I could immediately tell he was going to provide help and tips I hadn't heard in other classes and decided to join the class. Ben helped me to correct a number of things I had been taught or learned incorrectly. Super helpful and understanding with all experience levels."

  • Review by a surfer

    "Having surfed on & off for a number of years and tried surfing everywhere from Hawaii to Australia, I was looking for a surf instructor that could coach me through to the next level & help me to be more consistent and go for bigger waves!! Ben's Surf Clinic is the best place I have found anywhere to do this. Ben and his instructors (Nicks, Cian, Ollie) are for sure the best people to help me with technique and improving my surf. They are all so much fun to surf with , and quickly spot areas where I can improve or tweak things to get instant results. Time in the water with Ben's Surf Clinic is super fun and my surfing is progressing really well as a result. Last weekend I joined Ben & Ollie for the Weekend Improver Clinic (4 lessons in a weekend & 1 theory class). It was for sure the best weekend of surf in my life. By the end of weekend, I was surfing green waves bigger than ever before. Best time ever !! A huge thanks to Ben & all the team @ Ben's Surf Clinic!"

  • Review by parents surfers, from Carlow, Ireland

    "We booked our two sons into Bens Surf Clinic and were extremely pleased with the way their two hour surf lesson was handled.Groups are limited to 6 and all equipment is provided. At a cost of 25 EUR each I felt that we got great value and the boys were very happy with their experience.Will definitely use again and very happy to recommend."

  • Review by a group of language school in Dublin, Ireland

    "We're a language school based in Dublin and Clare and as part of our programs we bring teenage students on outdoor activities. This summer we brought our students to Ben's in Lahinch - specifically for their indoor climbing wall and archery range. Ben and his staff were great - very easy to work with and very obliging; the climbing walls a good challenge for the students and the archery good fun. We were able to book our dates well in advance and the fact that these activities are indoors meant that we didn't have to rely on the weather. I'd definitely recommend these activities to other groups and recommend Ben's to look after you. Thanks to Ben and staff!"
