Fin McCools Surf School is located at Rossnowlagh on scenic Donegal Bay. ‘Ross Neamhlach’ loosely translates as ‘heavenly cove’ and no description here could be more apt. The beach is about 3 km long with safe surfing all along its length and especially at the southern end. The School is located at the central junction in Rossnowlagh, a mere 50m stroll on to the surfing beach. We are about 3 hours from the M50 in Dublin and about 2 hours from Belfast.

Fin McCools Surfers Beach Pad

We offer a 2 Bedroom Surfers Apartment right next door. It comes with its own Private Courtyard and fully equipped Kitchen.

Contact us here at the School for more details.
