The Dingle Peninsula has some great, but notoriously inconsistent, waves. The greatest concentration is around Brandon Bay on the north side, an area popular with surfers and windsurfers and host to regular windsurf competitions. Scoring some of these fickle gems requires exacting swell and wind directions, although being a peninsula, there's always the option of the other side. Inch Reef is a slumbering classic that rarely breaks but is reputedly one of the longest waves in the country, attracting crowds when it's on. Be prepared for flat spells or out of control surf, leaving time to explore this fantastic region that still has a real flavour of old Ireland.
