Ireland's Top Surfing Spots - In Infographic Form

2nd April 2014
Ireland's Top Surfing Spots - In Infographic Form

#Surfing - Do you know the best places to surf in Ireland?

Perhaps you've read our many stories on the brave and bold waveriders at Mullaghmore Head. Or the dangerous surf at Lahinch in Co Clare that caused significant damage in January's storms.

But did you know Portrush in Co Antrim is great for kids just getting started on the waves? Or that some of the best surf for beginners can be found on in West Cork?

That and more can be learned from this fascinating infographic courtesy of the Ocean Sands Hotel in Enniscrone, Co Sligo, which provides hospitality at the heart of the northwest's big wave surfing axis.

Maybe it will teach you something new about Ireland's surfing legacy - and encourage you to take to the waves this summer!

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
