My 10 year old daughter, 13 and 16 years old sons, and two of us, had great fun kayaking today with Achill Surf on Keel Lake. Two younger kids have never tried it before but thanks to really good instructors they understood the basics pretty quickly and had a great fun! Highly recommended

9 months ago ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Achill surf + kayak really have a very professional outfit and without a doubt the best service in the game with room for a wide range of ages, everyone is very friendly and very helpful! I have been going with friends for years since our school tours and can't wait to get our group booked in again this season! The guys there are able to take on groups but everyone still gets that 1 on 1 training experience which is second to none! And the main thing everyone always has a great time which is great fun for any occasion whether it's a family holiday or a group activity such as a stag or hen party! In one of the prime locations of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way it harnesses some of the most spectacular views on earth! Highly recommended and I wish you guys a successful 2018 😀

A great place with excellent friendly instructors. Always a pleasure going to Achill Surf each year. The T.Y. students always have a fantastic time and really enjoy the surfing. The only Surfing Centre with showers available on the beach. I highly recommend the Centre to any surfer or anyone wishing to learn how to surf,

Terrific place and spectacular location with stellar instructors. I found the instructors friendly and patient ( needed that bit of extra help to stand ) their knowledge and experience made the lessons easy. Having showers in the beach separates Achill surf adventures from the rest. Looking forward to visiting again in May and staying at their new accommodations. I highly recommend the center to any surfer 🏄
