The Fin McCool Surf Shop took great care of us during our recent trip to Rossnowlagh. Nora and the rest of the staff were super friendly and knowledgeable! We got great rental gear and the shop is right near the beach. Highly recommend.

Came for two lessons and one night stay. Lessons were great, even if the surf wasn't. Surfed until I couldn't move! Ended up on my own in the triple, so didn't have to worry about noise or sharing.
