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.
Situated a stones throw from the beautiful Rossnowlagh Beach, this pad is all about the location. That being said, furnishings are modern and clean and will comfortably take a group of 4 friends or a family with 2 kids.
