Donegal is renowned as an unforgettable hub for surfing holidays in Ireland
From the reef breaks at Bundoran to the swells of Inishowen, Donegal has long been regarded the number-one destination for surfing holidays in Ireland. While Bundoran is widely considered the best place to surf in Ireland, the entire county is awash with exhilarating opportunities to hit the waves. In fact the most consistent waves in all of Ireland can be found in Inishowen in the north-west—thanks to its unique exposure to south-west, west, northerly and north-easterly Swells.
With its long, golden beaches and ISA-approved Inishowen Surf School, Inishowen is the perfect stop-off for any surfing holidays in Ireland. Whether you’re a beginner to the board or already an accomplished surfer, the Wild Atlantic waves at Inishowen will make for an experience you’ll never forget.
And for those who’d prefer a more relaxing beach holiday in Ireland, Inishowen has a whole treasure trove of golden sandy beaches
Let’s face it, exhilarating adventure and the salty bite of fresh sea waves aren’t for everybody.
