Some surf in Spiddal SOMETIMES!! Very rare but nice. Out towards conemara there are some sites along notht west part. Many places are sheltered here. Occasional surf. County Clare isn't far away from Galway city.

I work in Spiddal and have never seen a wave above a foot or 2 so good surf is VERY rare indeed :) I'd recommend Fanore in north Clare as the nearest decent location, its around an hour from Oranmore.
