I booked the Easter Long Weekend and really enjoyed it. We were picked up in Central Dublin on Friday evening and returned on Monday afternoon. The special included 3 activities (surfing, kayaking or SUP), though the great majority always goes surfing (unfortunately there were absolutely no waves on Monday). The rooms are very clean and linen, towels and a light breakfast are included. They also organised a Easter Party with a live band playing at the hostel and lots of chocolate! We went to the pub 'the Chasin Bull' where another band was playing, Bundoran offers some nice restaurants and pubs.
The surf lessons are great! I've had 2 lessons previously and with those two lessons here I could definitely see a bit of improvement. The instructors were super nice and tried their best to help the ones that struggled a bit more and everyone was up and standing in no time. Wetsuits, boots, gloves and hoods keep you warm for the most part though you really appreciate the nice hot shower at the hostel after spending time in the freezing cold water! One thing that let me down a bit is that the hostel is a little chilly so you'll definitely want to bring warm clothes.
I've had a great weekend and hope to return at some point!
Big thanks to Kate, Killian, Nathan, Charlie, Keith and everyone else! More
