Being a regular visitor to Castlegregory I would highly recommend it as a location for windsurfing, surfing etc. especially as Jamie Knox has a shop there stocked with everything you might need, whether to purchase or hire all at competitive prices. Call in to Jeremy in the shop for a good deal and a chat.

Had a great week windsurfing and learning to SUP in waves at Brandon bay, a stunning location to learn. In between sets you can admire the scenic view of the mountains. The guys at Jamie's were very friendly and helpful about where to get the best conditions and there hire equipment is superb. The accommodation they recommended was top quality all in all I had a fantastic week and highly recommend it.

Beautiful location but not sure if i liked as a watersport facility. The beach is very stony so it was difficult to get down to the water with 3 young children and the staff are very young and i would say inexperience with being good in the area of customer service. One young lad let my wife carry the board down by herself and seeing she was having difficulty as i had my hands full with 3 young kids and their boards etc, i had to shout up at him to giver her a had and when he finally did he was very unfriendly and abrupt as if i was putting him out. Not great value for money either. A safe beach none the less, no big waves or waves at all in fact.

Castlegregory and its various beaches offer fantastic windsurfing options, wave sailing, flat water blasting and a great location for those starting out and learning in flat safe water, absolutely ideal and under the expert tutelage of Jamie - you can't go wrong. Jamie' shop is a great source of local information for those new to the area, Jeremy is extremely helpful for those looking to get their hands on windsurfing, surfing or SUPing equipment. The shop offers excellent value and very helpful for those looking for advice on equipment selection and purchase. Great food served at Spillanes bar and restaurant to further compliment the area. In summary great windsurfing location, excellent tuiton and service offered by Jamie and Jeremy, you won't be disappointed. Kieran, Dublin.
