“Best place to surf”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2015

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 to leave. But I´m sure I´ll come back. 100% recommendable.

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 that the local community of Bundoran are lovely too!
The surf lessons were hard work but so enjoyable, and when you eventually catch a wave and stand up on the board it makes all the previous frustration sooo worth it.
We had a great fancy dress party in the lodge for Halloween which allowed for a nice bonding session with the whole group.
Breakfast every morning was perfect and the comfort of the lodge overall was without fault. Showers were warm and powerful and the beds were extremely comfortable. I loved everything about the place.
I will most definitely be returning to TurfnSurf Lodge in the very near future and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who would be interested in a thrilling adventure weekend like this.

Thanks Killian and all at TurfnSurf Lodge :)

The lodges are clean and located at the middle of the town. The staff is helpful and the surfing was the best part. You can come with large groups and have fun. Try to come in sumer though, in winter that might not be that funny.

Everybody was awesome. Smiling a lot was part of a daily routine and surfing was a superb experience in itself. Very helpful and cool host, free access to pool table in Joe's lodge, music and a lot of fun everywhere: in the lodge, on the beach, on the board, in the pubs, in the car to and from the beach.

Everything is taken care of and all you need to do is let go and enjoy

Room Tip: Top floor seemed better if you don't mind the steps
