Surf Lodge

I'm living in the Famous West Kerry on the magnificent Dingle peninsula my passion is all about water sports especially surfing & foiling. I'm running a 13 bedroom hostel surrounded by 9 different beaches on a small peninsula including the wonderful long Brandon bay, the local area has lots to offer with beautiful landscape sand dunes and mountains, water sports & land activities, pubs, restaurants, hiking trails, all in walking distance of the lodge

To experience a once in a life time opportunity... If you're looking to improve your water skills you will love it here, it's just the right place! We will go on little surf trips/tours, which will offer very different types and sizes of waves i can also share some coaching tips and tricks if requested. you'll be surrounded by amazing welcoming people such as my family and friends.

im a 25 year old stereotypical surfer who is very enthusiastic about water sports, relaxed living and enjoy general good fun. spend most my time on a board or at the beach. I've only just started this business and is well in the beginning process. I've done a good bit of traveling and really enjoy socializing with new people.

The experience in the Maharees was amazing, the place is a true paradise, highly recommended if you want to connect with the nature, the sea, and enjoy water sports.
The work in low season is easy, and Duncan is very flexible with the schedules, so you have plenty of free time to enjoy this wonderful place.
On the other hand, the people in the hostel make you feel like in a family from the first moment.
Thanks a lot for everything!💛✨

The Surf Lodge quickly became my home away from home. Amidst stunning Irish landscapes, I found a welcoming community and contributed to this lovely hostel. Duncan, its heart and soul, is both a dedicated host and an inspiring surfer. His infectious passion for the lodge and surfing sets a laid-back vibe. Working at your own pace, supported by Duncan, made every moment wonderful, even during wild off-season wind and rain storms. The Surf Lodge is a must for an authentic Irish adventure amongst new friends.

I had a great month at the hostel with Duncan and everyone else staying/passing through. The work load was light due to the hostel being off-season but there were plenty of projects if you were motivated. While the location of the hostel was about an hours walk from the village, Duncan was always willing to give rides as needed. The hostel was large but warm and friendly and there was always something to do if you got out and about. Everyone I met there was good craic and the Maharees was so beautiful with its own kind of magic. Duncan was so kind as to loan me water gear and boards!

I stayed 5 weeks at the lodge and it was one of my best experiences ! Duncan is very kind, he always wants to be sure we are good and we enjoy our stay ! Tasks are easy to do and the lodge is very comfy, you feel at home very easily ! If you want to visit more you’ll need a car but if you love nature and just want to enjoy watersports, the lodge is the perfect place ! People are all very kind, they love to share and help ! It wasn’t easy to leave them !
I arrived at the end of october so it wasn’t so hot to go to surf but it’s definitely an amazing place to start or just to enjoy surfing !
