Fin McCools Surf Shop and Surf School
Neil Britton, head surf instructor and owner of Fin McCool’s, comes from a family of surfing pioneers in Ireland. His grandmother, Mrs B bought a surfboard from some travelling surfers in the 1960’s as a facility for the guests in her hotel, unaware that surfing would become an obsession for her sons and grandchildren. As with many of the Britton family, Neil has surfed on the Irish team and has judged surf contests internationally. In all his years travelling the world as a surfer, Neil has never seen a beach more ideal for a surf school.

It is not unusual for up to 6 members of the Britton Family to be instructing at the School. At any one time you could have 2008 Irish Senior Champion John ‘JB’ Britton taking the kids out for a lesson or

Surfworld Bundoran / Surf Coach Ireland
It all began back in 1990 when Richie Fitzgerald and his family started the North West’s first and leading surf shop, Surfworld. It started with a tiny shop selling bars of wax & leashes. Today Surfworld Bundoran boasts a massive floor space jam packed with everything you need to go surfing.

Over the last 20 years the Bundoran surfing scene has grown and Surfworld Bundoran has grown with it, to become one of the most recognised names in the core Irish surfing industry.

The feel of a locally owned, grass roots and all core surf retailer still holds pride and place in our shop. Our store offers a vibrant place to browse for wetsuits, surfboards, clothing and accessories, with expert and friendly staff always on hand to offer assistance.

Of recent years, we now offer a surf academy and surf school catering for all levels of surfers… first timers, beginners, intermediate, advanced and elite.

TurfnSurf Lodge and Surf School
TurfnSurf is a family run business which was established in August 2006 by husband and wife Killian and Mary O’Kelly. Killian is a born and bred Bundoran man who spent most of his childhood exploring the sea and land of the surrounding area. He is an avid water sports man and has spent many years as a life guard in Bundoran. Mary is originally from the east coast but moved to Bundoran about 4 years ago and has never looked back. She is involved with the B&B side of the business along with providing support for the surf school.

We really enjoy getting out and about in the north-west and our aim is to help show you the wonderful countryside and the great fun they can have right on their door step. We are able to do this with the great help and support from our team of surf instructors and support staff who all live and surf locally and can also show you the secrets of the Bundoran and county Donegal area.
