Can't recommend Turf n Surf highly enough; both for activities and accommodation. The instructors were professional and encouraging, which was great for a beginner surfer. Direct bus from Dublin city made it so easy. Hostel is very clean, very cosy and great breakfast. There are private rooms and dorms-suitable for couples, friends, or those travelling solo. The owner, Killian, also...

Normally when I plan to do amazing things like going camping or traveling I cant wait and when I´m done I think it wasnt that great at all. But when I planned to attend the surf course with turf n surf I wasn´t excited at all. After three days hanging around with the world coolest staff I was quiet sad...

I honestly had the best weekend of my life at TurfnSurf Lodge! I went on my own but returned with an amazing bunch of new friends of a similar mindset and an equal love for adventure. The owner, Killian, was so welcoming, friendly and easy going throughout the whole weekend. The staff were lovely and I can also even say...
