Voted Surf School of the Year 2022

We were over the moon to get the call from the good folks running the Travel and Hospitality awards to let us know that Sligo Surf Experience had been voted as Irish surf school of the year for 2022. The awards were based on an interview with the judges and an analysis of our website and reviews online. We couldn't have achieved this without you, our valued customers and supporters. Thank you for coming to our surf school in Strandhill to visit us and thank you for taking the time to leave a review and share how excellent your surf lesson with us in Strandhill was with the world.

We work very hard throughout the year to make sure we can deliver the best surf lessons in Strandhill to our customers. And receiving awards like these is a good way to know that what we are doing is working. Although, the smiles on our customers' faces each time they leave the water with us says it all. [...]

Sligo Surf Experience blog

This is Seamus Mc Goldrick. I am the owner of Sligo Surf Experience in Strandhill and a team rider with Science bodyboards. As well as being a professional bodyboarder and a busy surf school manager, I love to write. I am also passionate about sharing the history of Sligo surfing and Strandhill village and the Coolera peninsula. I want to use my blog to share lots of surfing hints, tips and techniques with you. I'll give you an insiders guide to the Sligo surfing scene and let you know about all the fun things to do in Sligo. There is more to County Sligo than just surfing. Sligo is situated along the surf coast of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way.

Sligo is known as Ireland's Adventure Capital so there are lots of things to do in Sligo. There are plenty of unique Sligo walks, you can go on an adventure on Lough Gill with Sligo Kayak Tours and or experience hiking and biking adventures over the Ox Mountains.

Strandhill is also an excellent foodie destination. You can also Chill in Strandhill as there is lots of wellness offerings too like yoga, massage and spa treatments. You can also dive into the history and heritage of Strandhill by visiting Dolly's Cottage, exploring the Killaspugbron Loop or visiting the resting place of a warrior queen by taking the Queen Maeve trail to the top of Knocknarea: the iconic limestone hill that dominates the Coolera Peninsula.

But you haven't done it all unless you come for a surf lesson in Strandhill with Sligo Surf Experience.
