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.

    29 March who'd have thought we"d be bobbing in Atlantic waves for a few hours. David provided toastie 5mm wet suits, helmets, gloves and booties. He knew where to pick out the best waves, arranged the lesson for the ideal tidal conditions, gave us excellent instruction and most of all the thrill of 'nearly'standing up several times. All with the backdrop of beautiful Sligo bay, the dunes and the blue sky. I highly recommend this for an afternoons entertainment.

    Still the original and best. Tom and Elisha are fantastic and we've had so much fun on our surf lessons. Would recommend for anyone visiting Sligo.

    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. 🏄‍♀️🙏🏼

    This is the best surf camp in Sligo. Both my kids have done this camp for many summers. Melanie, Micheal and the team are exceptional. They are magic with the kids. The same staff each year probably indicates how happy instructors are there. They always know every child’s name. If you are are trying to choose a camp this is the best one in Strandhill 10/10. My kids always say this is their favourite summer camp.

    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! :)
