I´d like somebody tell me where could I go on vacation during July (I´m searching for powerful and rocky waves). I´m a experienced bodyboarder, and I know that Clare and Mayo would be Ok. I would hire a car and if somebody wants could come with me and go surfing everywhere... Thank you!

If you can i'd hold out until sept/oct to make your trip if it is primarily for the surf. Summer months can be fickle, from flat to overhead, but if your luckly you mite get something. If you are renting a car i wouldn't pick any particular location to be based out of, just drive where it looks like the waves will be best. Saying that, between clare, mayo, sligo (my favourite) and donegal, you'll have pretty much all swell and wind direction covered along with every type of wave, from slabby reefs to heavy beaches

Thank you Steve! Just one more question: renting a car, how many time do yo think there is from Dublin to Clare and from Clare to Donegal all along the coast? As you say, maybe a should wait to september then... thank you again mate!! ;-)

HI Jonan. It takes perhaps, 3.5 to 4 hours from dublin to clare. Then from clare to donegal it depends what part of donegal. From Clare to bundoran in donegal, the peak is there, very good wave, it is maybe 3.5 hours but to north donegal it could take you 5 hours. Once you are out west it does not take to long to move around depending on where has better conditions. LIke i said, you could go in july and maybe get good waves. if you wait until autumn the chances of you getting good waves are much much better. hope that helps
