Just got back from a week in County Clare where my son and his dad surfed at Spanish Point. They had a great lesson with Pat, hired their kit from him each day and had a brilliant time. Pat is a total star, if you're heading over that way to learn to surf don't go to anyone else!

This was a real highlight of a reset trip to Ireland. Pat the owner is a real West Clare surf dude and he is as laid-back as they come. My kids were standing on the board by the second or third wave I think. Amazing value, stunning location. Great example of the best things about Ireland.

One of my best experience ever! We had never tried surfing before, but Pat was an incredible instructor and made us feel very safe in the water. Everybody should have a surf lesson or two with Pat.

This summer and last summer we brought several groups of 20-35 students here to learn surfing in the afternoons. Pat, the instructor, and his staff are excellent - they give the... More

Pat came recommended from a friend in Miltown and over the course of 3 weeks, our 3 kids (ages 14, 11 and 6) attended Pat's school almost every weekday and had a brilliant time. Pat is coolness personified and he gets a great response from all the kids. Our 6 year old daughter was thrilled to be taught by one... More

Surfing is fun, and a great way to work out. Pat " preacher" Keane and his team operate a school which caters for all. Their kids camps are very popular - great value and very well supervised. The adult lessons, either one to one or groups, give a great insight into the sport......conducted in a safe environment with an ethos... More

Took the kids for a surf experience and it was worth every penny of this exceedingly good service. My daughter loved the surf camp and really found the instructors brilliant - Pat and Dex, she has always been a bit timid but the encouragement and help she got was fantastic. Her photos are her pride and joy. My son had... More

Simply put ....."amazing" Pat was the perfect fit for our team of novice surfers. He made us feel welcome and at ease with our obvious challenge ... surfing the waves. Time was spent creating the ultimate atmosphere for our learning, encouraging and catching each of us at our best attempt on the boards. Fun filled morning for all. Well worth... More
