Traditionalists may prefer to tackle the waves in a currach, but if you're serious about having fun Atlantic-style, here's a n-ocean: wet your appetite for a sea-change in your leisure interests with surfing and kayaking lessons at the Achill Surf & Kayak School.
- Splash out €9 (a €20 value) -- you can salt the rest away -- for a 2½-hour surfing or kayaking lesson. Wetsuits, and surf boards are provided; all you need to bring is a packed lunch.
- If you'd like two, 2½-hour sessions: a whole day's lessons, including a bus excursion from Galway or Mayo to the magnificent two-mile long beach at Keel, board hire, wetsuit and refreshments along with some first-hand experience of surf and kayak techniques, all the while developing your confidence in the water, pay just €19 (a €40 value).
- Give the whole family a trip to the seaside they'll remember when you pay €69 (a €160 value) for two adults and two children -- over the age of ten -- to enjoy a day of lessons, including travel from Galway or Mayo, as above.
- The school is open seven days a week until August 31, and then on selected dates until September 30.
