Conor Maguire, Professional surfer for Redbull - from Bundoran, Co.Donegal, Ireland
“Ireland has one of the most wave rich coastlines in the world. We’re the battering ram for swells generated in the Atlantic which means there’s no shortage of days to surf either. Our world class breaks attract surfers from all over the world throughout winter with everything from big waves for the more advanced surfers, to smaller, more user friendly beaches and reefs for beginners and intermediates”.
Surfing in Ireland is a unique experience to say the least. Our breathtaking coastline brings an extra special element to it all with amazing waves perfectly positioned in the most beautiful locations. Sheer cliff faces, mountains oozing with character and enchanting castles that could tell a tale or two are some Ireland’s best attributes.
An aspect of surfing in Ireland that a lot of traveling surfers comment on is our energetic pub culture. There’s nothing a pint and some tunes after a fun day in the sea with your mates. Nowhere compares to home in my opinion.”
