SURFMAYO is open for surf lessons and rentals 7 days a week from June to September 2024. Check out our social media for daily surf reports. Please contact us for bookings and more information. 🙂


SURFMAYO (1998) was the first surf school to be established in County Mayo, and even one of the first surf hire companies to set up in Ireland. It is located at the beautiful beach of Carrowniskey Strand in Louisburgh which can be found on the Wild Atlantic Way. Ever since SURFMAYO was established, it has been an ISA (Irish Surfing Association) approved surf school that abides to specific standards that are evaluated on a yearly basis. SURFMAYO is the closest and most experienced surf school to the popular destinations of Louisburgh and Westport. Furthermore, it is locally owned and run by surfers with 20+ years of experience surfing around the West Coast of Ireland. Join us this summer for a surf experience you will never forget!

Summer Surf Camp

We teach children from the age of 7 to 16. As well as learning to surf or improving surfing skills, our camp has an atmosphere where everyone can have a great time while staying safe in the water.

Surf Lessons

Whether you’re an absolute beginner or a surfer who is in need of some professional guidance this session is for you. Within our basic surf lesson we aim to give each person the solid foundation that they will need to develop as a surfer.

Surf Hire

If you are heading to the Westport or Louisburgh area and don’t have room in your transport, or you don’t own your own surf equipment, then why not hire from SURFMAYO.

5 Stars

Had a great time with Elvis and Charles on Friday gone by as part of a work trip away, great location and weather. The equipment and instructions were top notch and had a very enjoyable time. We will definitely be going back again!

Made the Right Choice

Arrived with a 6, 11, 12 and 40+ year old. The time afforded to ensuring everyone was comfortable and having 'good craic' was second to none. Thanks Charles and Elvis and see you again later this summer for Round 2.

Amazing surf instruction!

After trying for 3 years to surf Elvis got me up and on the board! Suited to all levels of surfers. Throughout the year!


Fantastic Friday!

I organised a school surf trip for a small group of students from a local secondary school with Surf Mayo, The conditions were beautiful, Charles and Elvis were very accommodating and helpful, both students and teachers had an absolute ball. I will definitely be hoping to make this an annual trip! 🙂
