Kinsale Surf Adventures – Safety First

We take safety very seriously. In fact, in many cases, we keep our standards higher than those recommended by our governing bodies. In 2013 we were randomly selected for a quality control check from the Irish Surf Association and achieved a standard of excellence higher than any other surf school in the area. This is because we believe, quite simply, that safety comes first! Our number one priority is the safety and well being of our students. The sea, whilst enabling us to have a huge amount of fun, must be respected because conditions can change very quickly. Our Instructors maintain a very high level of fitness and are constantly monitoring our students in the water. Our policy reflects the respect we have for our students and the ocean.

Based only 25 minutes from Cork city we are in an ideally placed location near the world famous and thriving town of Kinsale.


Garretstown Beach is an ideal place to learn to surf due to its clean rolling waves that suit all levels of surfers. Garretstown Beach is undoubtedly the new surf hub of the south coast with its mellow vibe. Friendly surfers from all over the county turn up daily to check the beach for the next fun wave they will be catching.

Come join experienced local surfers Greville & Allie Walsh and their team of equally enthusiastic and experienced surfers for a super fun and healthy experience. Experience what the lively town of Kinsale has to offer to everyone in need of a break from the frantic pace of work life.

The Kinsale Surf Adventures team invites you to join us to learn to Surf and benefit from our local knowledge and experience gained from surfing around the world. Alternatively, simply unwind and detox with a Surf and Yoga flow/ Stand Up Paddle Board safari weekend. We offer overseas adventure packages, Coasteering Adventures and cater to all students of all ages and levels.

We guarantee all beginners will be standing and riding a wave by the end of their lesson!
