Owner description: Blackfield Surf, kitesurf and SUP School is the only approved surf School on Achill Island.We are fully approved by the Irish Surfing Association and are one of only two schools in Mayo with this accreditation. If you need a surfing lesson or to hire some wetsuits, surfboards or body boards, just drop in! If you would like to learn to kitesurf, or improve, just give us a call.If you would like to go on a stand up paddleboard expedition through caves and arches-let us bring you! We run a hugely popular and (very small) surf camp for children aged 8-16 during the months of July and August.The surf school runs from our iconic double decker bus on Keel beach. In winter (October - March) our bus is closed but we are always happy to run lessons or hire equipment! Just call us!

We regularly call in to Blackfield on the way to or coming back from Keel, it has the best coffee in Achill and a great selection of fresh cakes ... last time (July 2011) they started selling fabulous cupcakes. Best thing about it is the relaxed atmosphere and its child friendly - a big box of toys for young children to play with, and floor space for them to do so too, without bothering other customers.
