FULL ITINERARY

Friday

Hike

Arriving in early afternoon to our quaint cottages to meet Dan and Nat your hosts for the weekend. We’ll drop our bags and head out for a guided hike up Binevenagh, the perfect opportunity to see the stunning location we’ll be exploring this weekend. 

Binevenagh is an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the dramatic cliffs rise high over the surrounding countryside and offer incredible panoramic views. This epic location provided the backdrop for Game of Thrones too! 

Our guide is excited to share short stories and information on the area; we’ll stop along route for a delicious outdoor coffee brew! 

In the evening we’ll enjoy a hearty home cooked dinner at the cottage, enjoy a Whiskey Sour and chill out around the campfire to stargaze. 


Saturday

Surf + SUP + Music! 

Starting our day with a full Irish breakfast at the cottage overlooking the vast green fields that surround us! 

Benone Strand is one of Ireland's longest beaches, with a sandy 9 mile stretch it’s ideal for all level surfers. The beautiful wild beach is uncrowded and has perfect beginner friendly waves, making it ideal for our weekend surf sessions. 

This weekend is open to all level surfers, especially great for beginners! Our surf instructors are passionate about surfing, with years of experience in teaching we’ll get you up and riding as soon as possible. We’ll split the group based on ability, so every surfer gets the best possible waves for their level! 

Breaking for lunch on the beach and refuel with a coffee at the Sea Shed, before heading to the River Roe for our afternoon SUP Session. 

Winding through the beautiful countryside, we’ll paddle for 2 hours and even do some mussel picking on route! 

In the evening we’ll enjoy an evening BBQ on the riverside before heading back to the cottage for an evening of Traditional Irish Music from a great local band! We’ll enjoy some bottles of Guinness and yarn storytelling from Big Gerard. 


Today we’ll have a continental breakfast in the cottage before heading back to the beach! 

We'll be getting back in the waves for our last surf session of the weekend. 

Heading back home in the afternoon.
