The Surf Shack Curraloe

Curracloe Beach, Coolrainey, County Wexford, Ireland

The Surf Shack is a Surf Adventure Centre & HQ for Dune Riders Ireland at The Winning Post on Curracloe Beach, Co.Wexford (Filming location for Spielberg’s epic war drama “Saving Private Ryan”).


We specialize in Surfing, Sand-boarding, Stand Up Paddle and Fun … whatever your age, ability or shoe size! Our beachside centre includes a café & pizzeria, and surf shop too.

Learn to surf in Co. Wexford with our ISA approved and insured surf school on summer kids camps, family surf lessons, public and private lessons or surf safaris.

Our instructors are experienced surfers and excellent coaches committed to riding the big surf in the winter and passing on their knowledge and experience to you in warmer months.

When the waves are not in town, try a new adventure on our Stand Up Paddle Boarding lessons & tours. With no experience needed we take you to the most idyllic locations Co.Wexford has to offer inc. historical river tours on the river slaney and our signature trip to meet Curracloe’s native grey seal colony in the crystal clear waters of Curracloe’s Raven Nature Reserve. Wave-riding and open-water paddle tours available too.


If that is not enough try surfing sand with The Surf Shack and Dune Riders Ireland at the only Sandboarding location in Ireland. Similar to snowboarding, sandboarding is a fun sport where you slide down sand dunes on our specially designed sandboards. Our lessons also educate you about the importance and preservation of the sand dune systems.


We offer all of this for large and small groups and have specially designed packages for hens and stags, birthday parties, school and language groups, private groups & more.
