Visiting Achill Island,Westport or Co.Mayo? Then get active with a surf lesson at Blackfield Surf School-Achill Islands original Irish Surfing Association approved surf school.
Ever since you saw Point Break you knew sooner or later that you'd have to give it a go. And this year you're taking a break in Mayo, not Hawaii. Keel beach is the perfect safe place to learn to surf. A gently sloping beach that is exposed to waves travelling from the south and west means that we have surf of some sort almost all year !
From April until October, we run lessons for adults, kids and all types of groups from hens and stags to scouts and schools- our Double Decker Surf Bus is on Keel Beach in July and August every summer.
Join us on our double decker surf bus for an unforgettable Wild Atlantic Way experience!

"We have sent the kids surfing with Gerry of Blackfields surf in 2010, 2011 and 2015. We plan to bring them back again in 2016 for two very specific reasons:
We have tried other surf schools in Ireland (mainly because there was a shorter drive to reach them) and none of them measure up to the quality of training and encouragement given to your surfers by Blackfield's Gerry and his team..."
“When I was coming to Achill for Bank Holliday weekend with no intention to surf. As it turned out I would miss so much by not trying it.For me it was first time so when my friends were trying on their own I decided to book a lesson. It was indeed good decision. Our instructor gave us (a group of 6 people) quick introduction to surfing, then showed some basic movements and techniques and let us try on our own.
I totally loved the whole experience ...”
“Blackfield Surf - Best Summer Camp"This July was our fourth year to join Gerry's surf school on Keel Beach and it just keeps getting better. The professionalism of Gerry and the team is outstanding and the combination of instruction, fun, camaraderie not to mention the apres-surf hot chocolate
