But back to Bundoran and the famous Sea Sessions music festival. From humble beginnings, the festival has grown to become one of the highlights of summer, attracting high profile international acts, as well as the best of Irish. It has cemented Bundoran’s reputation as the Irish surf capital. As well as the musical side of things, it hosts Ireland’s biggest surfing event, skating, BMX, beach sports, yoga, colour runs, and big, big party on the beach.
Other great surf spots
Just because Bundoran is the surf capital, doesn’t mean the rest of this lovely coastline is lacking in surf. We’re an island, after all. Portrush, Newcastle, Ballybunion, Achill Island, Inishowen and, of course, Lahinch are just some of the places you can experience this cold paradise… The Irish Surfing Association lists all of its members, while Outdoor NI makes sure surf schools in Northern Ireland can cater for your every need.
