Surfers in Dublin?

« on: November 26 2005 15:11:00 »

Moving to Dublin in January but I don't know anyone that surf there. Anyone have a spare seat in their car? Of course, I'll share the costs.

I did a semester abroad in Dublin last year w/board and suit.  I used to take the bus to Ballyshannon and surf the Peak in Bundoran (world class reef break).  You can stay at a hostil right across the street for real cheap. You'll probably run into some other surfers there.  And if there's a solid swell forecast, bring the mini-gun!

JP here, I'm living in dublin, been surfing about 2 years mostly on hols though. Always good to get to know more surfers as i dont go to the west half enough. Drop me a line if you'd like to make a trip.

ya dont really need to fly to donegal,you can get the bus its easier really,theres a bus to ballyshannon then a connectin one to bundoran,it only takes bout 4 hrs,once in bundoran u have the choice of two brilliant waves,tullan strand and the peak.otherwise rent a car adn drive up,maybe check out strandhill in sligo,(under4hr drive),kinda close to bundoran.

Hi, I'm trying to surf and I am living in Dublin. I've got a car but no board at the moment. If you want I can drive you at the sessions point and you can learn me what you know about surf. If you are interested in let me know on this forum or by mail.
