Ireland in late Aug

« on: August 03 2011 17:08:00 »

Heading to Ireland in Late Aug. Looking to drive from Dublin to the west coast. I have never been to Ireland is the drive easy? Also what is the surf like in Aug? Would a 3/2 do the trick or would I need some thicker rubber? Do most of the waves have easy access? Any help would be great. Thanks a bunch

hi matt

You would get away with a 3/2  as water is at its warmest but all the same i use my 4/5 all year round. it depends how long you are in the water! Drive to west 2.5 hours nearest surf sligo. check out clare and kerry and bundoran also.

Also - the drive is fine, about 3 hours, mostly motorway with windy rural roads for the final hour but it's a nice drive..Enjoy your stay!

I remember the road signs are tiny and easy to go past which can be a bummer but I was there before sat-nav so probs not a worry for you!
