Its one of the fastest growing sports in Ireland, and Kerry has some of the best surfing beaches in Ireland. 3000 miles West and 7000 South the Atlantic Ocean’s energy is released on Ireland’s Coast from time to time causing large swell’s to break on our Coastline brining excellent surfing conditions !
Rossbeigh is only ten miles from the bar, and Inch strand is is also close. Further on is Castlegregory beach, which is a favourite for many of the local surfers. Each of these beachs have their own surf schools, where you can rent both wetsuits and boards if you don’t have your own.
