Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was really fun! The instructors were so knowledgeable and helpful and made sure everyone caught a few waves. Rory was very patient and helped anyone that was finding it difficult. You get a lot of time in the water so it’s definitely worth the experience. Would recommend to anyone for a fun day!

I have surfed with Sligo surf experience three times now. And I’ve had a blast every time I would highly recommend for anyone who wants to try surfing for the first time or just wants to keep going back to learn and have fun in the waves.

The wetsuits were so warm I could've stayed in all afternoon! I had a blast & felt completely safe though I came solo. The attentive instructors were fabulous and a whole lot of fun. I'm coming back!

I am currently living in Dublin and made a short weekend trip to the West coast. I am originally from Switzerland but learnt surfing in Costa Rica. Since I have had a long break of surfing, Seamus class was the perfect 🤩 start into the season. He knows within minutes what your skills are and adapts his way of teaching to your expertise:) Amazing time in the water even though it was still a bit cold. With the right gear you will be warm enough from paddling;)

Had a group lesson with Seamus today. We had some 1st timers and also some with a little previous experience. Seamus was fantastic, catered to our different levels excellently. We all had a brilliant session and would highly recommend visiting the surf school in Strandhill
