I couldn’t believe it when I heard it for the first time that you can surf in Ireland, but, why not? Ireland get big waves year round.
Summers like anywhere in Europe will be more difficult but there are swells at any time of the year.
Spring is the best time to surf in Ireland, days are getting longer, better waves and it less crowded.
With the prevalent airflow from the SW and mainly north facing aspect, open to most Atlantic swells, Counties like Donegal, Leitrim, Sligo and Mayo makes surfing a paradise.
