What You'll Do

Dive headfirst into Sligo's number one activity in one of the best surf beaches anywhere in the world, and thrill as you catch your first wave in the stunning natural surroundings of County Sligo.

Arrive at the bustling village of Strandhill and prepare for an unforgettable day catching your first wave, or, if you’re a little more experienced, carving your way through the legendary surf that washes into this pristine beach just of the Wild Atlantic Way.

Meet Seamus, a native of Strandhill and Ireland’s most well known professional bodyboarder. He will fill you in on all you need to know about the Irish surf scene and the heritage and history of County Sligo.

Then, after a lesson in the basics of surfing on dry land, you’ll be heading into the water under the watchful eye of your instructor as you enjoy the sensation of total freedom, surfing through the salt spray and the fresh sea air.

After your surfing experience, refreshed and invigorated, dry off on the beautiful beach and head to explore one of the many cafes or bars along the promenade, or the trails that lead into the spectacular hills.

Seamus and his team were super helpful and hands-on in their approach in instructing myself and the rest of the group as beginners or near beginners.

I have used Seamus’s surf experience company each time I have been out in Strandhill and have made steady progress each time I have gone out. He has a team of great instructors with loads of tips and patience. Highly recommend you take a dip with them if given the chance. You definitely won’t regret it. Also for the price with all the gear supplied to you, it is incredible value.
