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!

Myself and few friends wanted to do something different for the New Year's Eve so we decided to try surf. We decided at the very last minute, but the owner helped us to organize all very well and welcomed us in a very friendly way when we arrived up in Donegal. I did 2 surfing lesson with Barry, was my first time, it was absolutely an outstanding experience. Teachers are very helpful, friendly, and willing to share with you their experience. Thanks guys for a very amazing New Year's Eve. Can t wait to b back!

The location was peaceful and gorgeous! With a window view onto the mountain, which surprisingly was covered in snow. Our arrival on Friday evening was quite late, however we were warmly welcomed and given a key to our house for the weekend. The house had three bedrooms, kitchen, living room, and few bathrooms. Perfect for a group of 7/8. We received a good variety of food options for breakfast time, this included cereal, breads and digestives, along with jam and butter. The house was spotless, with two towels on each bed. The beds were very comfortable and we had good two night sleeps. Wardrobes were huge which would be very beneficial for a longer stay. And overall the house was spacious and comfortable. The surfing was incredible, coached by enthusiastic, chill but experienced people which were able to give one on one guidance to all levels of surfing. The sessions were educational and again the location made the whole experience magical, just beautiful! All transport was provided to the surfing lessons and back to home, and the overall program was well organised and great fun. I would defiantly come back.

We at 8 people for 2 bedrooms: 1 private and the other shared. We were all delighted by the stay! It's a family business and we can feel it since we are always warmly welcomed and helped. Bundoran is an amazing town and staying here was even better :)

We booked the Wild Ireland tour with the TurfnSurf team and it was definitely a great decision. Even if we were off season, they did everything they could to make it happen (thanks Killian!). Our guide, Bryan, is one of the friendliest person we ever met. We had a lot of fun (''great craic'', as we learn to say!) and we absolutely recommend this experience. This five days tour includes all the transport, the activities, the lodging and some surprising stops. We slept for two nights at the TurfnSurf Hostel and it was cosy, clean, well situated right across the beach and every member of staff was friendly. We had a good time. Also, the surf session was amazing, even if we did not get the best weather, it was one of the highlights of our trip!

Our two daughters, (aged 11 and 14) had only surfed once before (somewhere a lot warmer) but the friendly and helpful staff at TurfnSurf assured us that they would be properly equipped and therefore fine to surf in the Atlantic in March! They were right, kitted out in winter wet suits with hoods, gloves and shoes, the girls were in the water for over an hour on each of their two surf lessons and had a fantastic time. The staff were friendly, fun, and extremely patient and both girls were standing up and very pleased with themselves at the end of each session. The locations (Tullan Strand and Rossnowlagh beaches) were perfect for surfers and spectators alike - the scenery is stunning. And if you're a parent onlooker at Rossnowlagh, we highly recommend a pint of Guinness at the nearby Smuggler's Creek Inn.

I really needed to unplug from work and go on relaxing trip. Yep, this did the trick. Honestly, the view from my room alone was worth the affordable price. The transportation, food, equipment and lessons were endless value-adds. And the staff was super helpful, nice and outgoing (which is sometimes rare in the surf world). Many people were paddling out for their first time. It was amazing to see everyone up and riding on waves throughout the weekend. The instructors really did a great job. And lastly, life at the lodge was perfect. Chocolate party, decent breakfasts, great conversation, And the music was amazing: Dylan, Lumineers, Leadbelly, Alt-J. Just my cup of tea. This package is a great combination of adventure and scenic relaxation. I can't recommend it highly enough.
I had a great time time at TurfnSurf. The surf lesson was so much fun. The instructors were very patient and helpful. After the lesson they welcomed us back with tea, coffee and biscuits. The dorm was clean and I slept very well. Our roommates were very friendly and we hung out with them the entire weekend. The direct bus from and to Dublin was very convenient. I had never surfed before, but they definitely got me on board. I will definitely go again. TurfnSurf is a fun, social environment; perfect for meeting new people and having a adventurous weekend
