Donegal is always such a great spot for surfing adventures. Bundoran and Rossnowlagh in particular are known for their amazing waves and amazing surf schools to match. This weekend, however, we decided to head further north to the northwest of Donegal to Gortahork and along the Wild Atlantic Way to Dunfanaghy searching for surf.
We eventually found the perfect beach to surf at Marble Hill; the beach was quite sheltered and was the only beach in the area working, and it was perfect for the beginners in our group in particular.
After our surf we stopped off at The Shack on Marble Hill beach for teas and coffees, the perfect little spot for sitting and viewing the beach and the amazing scenery of the locality.
The surfing school in the region is called Narosa and they’ll be happy to take groups surfing, SUPing (stand-up paddling) or on a whole host of other activities. If surfing ain’t your thing though, there are plenty of options for walking and hiking on Mount Erigal, Bluestack Mountains and in Glenveagh National Park.
There are a whole host of amazing walks along beaches and lakes in the area and when you’ve walked your legs off, there are plenty of pub and restaurant options for relation at the end of the day!
