I spent the past two weekends doing the ASI level 1 and 2 SUP instructor courses and SUP Water Rescue. Paul is a fantastic teacher and has great knowledge of the sport. I really enjoyed the courses, they where very informative and I learnt a lot. Looking forward to getting stuck into SUP instructing.

Got to see some breathtaking places and he created such a warm friendly atmosphere. Everything from organising 13 people with boards,transport and dining was stressfree and efficient and would highly recommend... More

Paul Byrne took a bunch of us (10 fabulous women & 3 great guys!!) on a memorable SUP trip to Slovenia in July 2016. We had six days of amazing SUP experiences all helped by our wonderful hosts in Ljubljana. We really got a feel for the rivers, mountains, lakes & coast of this beautiful country. It was an activity... More

I had the option of taking my SUP Level 1 and 2 Instructor courses in various locations, and ultimately settled on Dublin with IrishSUP. I am thrilled it turned out that way as I cannot imagine a better teacher than Paul Byrne. It's always pleasure to meet someone who is kind, talented, and interesting, and who is able to maintain...

I did my ASI instructors courses with Paul and thoroughly enjoyed it! He provides a fun environment with a knowledgeable and patient(!) instructor. I'd happily recommend Irish SUP for anyone looking for a lesson in the Dublin area either beginners or more advanced skills. Thanks Paul!

Having recently completed the ASI Level 1 SUP course with Paul Byrne of Irishsup.com last weekend. I can honestly say, I feel far more confident on instructing a SUP lesson now than I did before completing the course. The reason for this is mainly down to how Paul interacts with all the trainee instructors. Your timed is evenly divided from... More
