Turf n' Surf

Ireland: Sligo

Nice lodge right in front of a high quality wave in a beautiful seaside town with self-catering houses available in this totally underrated surf destination.

"Right in front of the Atlantic Ocean on Ireland's coast"

Surfers looking for a surf camp option which places them right in front of what is generally accepted as Ireland's most consistent and best quality reef break may find the Turf 'n' Surf a good match. Here you will be overlooking the surf spot known as The Peak – a reef producing A-frame lefts and hollow rights. This nice lodge is situated in a beautiful seaside town, right in front of the Atlantic Ocean in Ireland's north-west corner of Donegal Bay. While a guest of Turf 'n' Surf you will be accommodated in one of several different rooms of the lodge each offering en-suite facilities. There are also self-catering houses available for those travelling in a group which gives you time flexibility and greater control of your own schedule.

"Looking for big wave walls or an emphasis on fun surf"

As previously mentioned the advanced-surfers-only option of The Peak is right in front of you from your Turf 'n' Surf base but there are also many other spots in walking and driving distance if you want a break from the challenges of The Peak or just fancy a change of scenery. Ireland is blessed with lots of gems of the wave riding kind and whether you are looking for big wave walls for super thrills or something less adrenalin fuelled with an emphasis on fun, mellow and gentle, you will be spoiled for choice.

Ireland is a very much underrated surf destination which has nowhere near the recognition of France, Spain and Portugal despite the fact its coast is exposed to and receiving exactly the same swell as those more popular (and therefore crowded) surf Meccas. Ireland has world class waves although not everyone knows it - get in before the secret is out! There are all sorts of packages possible which cover your play time both in and out of the water. If you are looking for a European surf camp with a high quality peak right in front of you and a choice of gems ranging from fun and mellow to big and /or fast and hollow then Turf 'n' Surf would be a good choice.
