Just fifteen years ago Ireland was a sleepy backwater of surfing, a few travellers would visit, guys from the UK who were in the know would make the regular ferry ride and slow drive across the country. But beyond that, the perfect points and reefs laid pretty quiet.
Then surf exploration and travel was opened up by cheaper air fares and a desire to find the next perfect wave. In Ireland they found hundreds, and if it wasn’t enough to find loads of perfect waves, explorers found big wave spots. Like no one believed existed. In the space of a few years Ireland went from sleepy backwater to surfing Mecca.
