Nice wave but over-rated - Just back from a trip here and had some good waves. The peak is pretty good but nothing epic. The locals are mostly cooks, so dont worry about getting waves.

patience and timing are all - If you are in this area when its firing - dreamtime. However, this may happen for 10 days a year MAX, the rest of the time its painfully average with month long waits for the westerlies to drop off. In winter unless you're a polar bear or a seal the cold is merciless, after 2hrs in the water the body starts shutting down. Also, the locals are getting alot less friendly, I had my windscreen smashed for little more than laughing at a local wipeout. Tread carefully.

Good Spot - Loved the Irish surfing experience. Everything from beachies to reefs and all in walking distance from the pub. Thanks to the boys at Bundoran Surf co for the hospitality and great hostel.
