Overview

Dingle Surf School & Stand Up Paddle Tours is the top rated surf school on TripAdvisor in Kerry. In business since 2001, Dingle Surf has brought a smile to thousands faces as they experience the sensation of catching their first few waves here on the beautiful Dingle Peninsula. Our surf lessons include travel to the beach so you can leave the car behind and let us take the stress out of the driving. Your lesson takes you over the magnificent Connor Pass, the highest mountain road in Ireland, where you'll marvel at the breathtaking views on display. From there we head to Brandon Bay where your instructor will take you through the basics before hitting the waves for the thrill of a lifetime, creating long lasting memories that will be the highlight of your Ireland trip. Alternatively take a Stand Up Paddle Tour of Dingle Bay. No experience is necessary as we teach you on easy to use RED Paddle Boards. Before you know it you'll be gliding out into the bay for a wonderful adventure checking out the local wildlife, craggy coastline and meeting Dingle's resident Dolphin. All our lessons are fully insured, come with all the equipment provided and are perfect for families, couples or lone travellers - we'll cater the package to suit your needs. For more experienced surfers we have a large range of equipment for hire at the best prices on the peninsula. Dingle Surf looks forward to getting you into the water on your Ireland adventure.

Jeez, sorry Mary. You must have caught me on a bad day. But thanks for calling me young and liking the inventory I guess! Good waves Ben.

Our 5 kids had a FABULOUS time learning how to surf for the first time. I believe his name was Ben--he was very kind and helpful and fun to be with. I would highly recommend trying this out.

I found this place on the web while getting ready for our trip to Ireland. Very friendly shop owner. Super tiny place but had a decent selection and good prices. Would definitely recommend if you're in the area to stop in and check it out.
