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.

    Fantastic experience on Lough Gill!
    What a great way to spend an afternoon with an excellent instructor, fantastic views and paddle on Lough Gill.
    I had little experience but Niall made everyone feel very safe and comfortable. Such a beautiful way to see Sligo and from a very different view.

    What a great surf school! The instructors are friendly and encouraging, making the lessons really good for kids. Our son really enjoyed a relaxed beginners lesson in a nice small swell, with the super instructors Miguel and Abdul teaching him to catch waves. It was so good we came back two days later to bring his grandfather for his first surf lesson! Seamus gave us a fun and safe lesson, adapting his instructions for grandfather and grandchild, making sure everyone had a good day on the water.

    Myself, my husband and our 3.5 year old son had a wonderful afternoon trip on The Rose of Innisfree. Bernard and George were excellent guides - very friendly and welcoming, with interesting stories, poetry and history of the area and all while enjoying the beautiful scenic views on Lough Gill.

    Had a great day with the lads from NthWest. They supervised The TriPeaks Challenge inthe Mourne mountains. The trek was well paced and the lads were constantly monitoring the group of 26. The lads were a hive of knowlege, good craic and professional.

    I have had many sessions with Rebelle Surf over the past year, and based on my fantastic experiences with Mel, Michael and all the team, I couldn't recommend them highly enough! The instructors are professional, highly skilled and very safety conscious. Most importantly, they focus on helping children and adults alike to have the best time and to develop their skills through lots of genuine encouragement and personalised instruction. Mel has created a surf school that really cares about people... in and out of the water! You won't regret spending time in lovely Strandhill with the amazing Rebelle Surf crew.

    We spent the May bank holiday in Sligo & booked a surf lesson for the Sunday morning. The location is perfect with ample parking & right beside the Strandhill Markets, bonus! There was a lovely relaxed atmosphere from start to finish. Tom & Abdel were friendly, encouraging & attentive and we never felt under any pressure. Tom took some photos too which was lovely. It was such an enjoyable morning & despite some sore arms today we all agreed we’d be back. We needed to leave a bit early & this wasn’t a problem. Wetsuits were in excellent condition with boots provided & the facilities were clean & hygienic. I’d definitely recommend to friends. 🏄‍♀️🙏🏼

    Did one day course again. Small group, fab location off Mullaghmore Sligo and excellent instruction. For those with a love of the sea or just a passing interest this course has the potential to open up a world of underwater possibilities. Highly recommend it.

    Best 1:1 surf session!

    I had such a joyful, empowering and fun surf session in the white water and surfing green waves with Seamus. While he explained movements extensively both on land and in the water, he also encouraged me multiple times to make surfing about fun... and to push beyond my comfort zone. Both exactly what I needed to hear.

    The rental equipment was excellent and the wetsuit kept me warm at all times.

    All in all, one of the best times surfing ever, can highly recommend Strandhill Surf Experience to anyone! :)

    This is a beautiful two hour tour of Lough Gill. I did not know a lot about Yeats poems but listening to George speak his poems gave everything a new meaning , Not a book in sight and his stories were also amazing. He if full of knowledge and a gentleman also. This trip was the most relaxing trip i have had in a long time. Lough Gill is beautiful and we will return again.
