South East of Co Donegal lies the surf haven of Donegal Bay. Rossnowlagh is home to the biggest surf club in Ireland and the legendary Surfer’s Bar while Bundoran is a regular international competition venue and prime time surfing is September to November each year. Serious surfers will enjoy Portrush, both East and West Strands and Portballintrae. Maybe you’re just learning or teaching the kids? Stay along Benone Strand and try Castlerock to practise those duck dives.
