Surf Weekends


Donegal Adventure Centre is the largest & best surf school in the country. We have now added Homefield Hostel to the original centre so we can provide even better Surf and Multi-Activity weekends. Our legendary surf weekends provide the ideal way to get surfing (if you're a beginner) or improve your surfing if you've already tried it a few times.

Arriving Friday evening, we have an exciting programme of surf lessons, some theory work, and good entertainment locally both evenings so you can enjoy the full weekend!

The words absolutely brilliant don't even begin to describe it. The surf was great and everything went really well. I thought I'd email you to thank you. Everyone had a great time, and we will definately be back. Thanks a million for all your help and thank everyone there for me.

Individuals are very welcome, and groups, even if everyone is not everyone wishes to partake are also welcome.

We provide lessons and equipment from absolute-beginner level to advanced surfers.

Learn to surf: Intermediate-advanced
If you or your group have a good bit of surfing experience, and would like to move on, we can organise an intermediate or advanced lesson for you.

I highly recommend this course to anyone with a real hunger to learn more about surfing & push their limits. If I can apply 10% of what I've learned I'll be a much improved surfer.

I had a great time. The instructor was great and I had fun surfing in a beautiful area, I loved the accommodations and met some fun people. I took lots of pictures and am bringing back some ideas for my program. Thanks to your wonderful program and staff!

Hi Niamh,
I was there on the Oct bank Holiday weekend for my hen party and I had a ball. I'll definitely be recommending it to my friends who weren't there as those who were are already raving about it. I want to especially commend the instructors. They were exceptional and never gave up trying to get everyone standing on their board (a pretty hard task but they suceeded). I have been to many surf schools and your instructors there were definitely the best,
Thanks for a great weekend and hope to see you again at some stage,
Reiltin O'Grady.
