The Green Room

If you're looking to learn to surf in Ireland, you've come to the right place. Situated a stones throw from the Blue Flag beach of Lahinch, at the heart of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way, is The Green Room Surf School & Shop. The Green Room, established in 2000, is a small, family run, Irish Surf Association approved surf school and eco surf shop in Lahinch, Co. Clare. We are open 7 days a week, all day, and provide a wide range of surf, sup and bodyboard lessons to suit all ages and abilities.

Our Mission

Our aim is simple, to help create a more sustainable surfing industry. The ocean is our playground, we want to preserve it and promote its well-being. 

The Green Room Surf School

We want you to enjoy our playground too! Our aim is to keep the surf school small, with smaller classes, so our coaches can teach in a fun, friendly and safe environment. All of our coaches are fully qualified Irish Surf Association instructors, Garda Vetted and trained beach lifeguards. Throughout all of our lessons we maintain a safe, fun and enjoyable ocean experience that you will never forget.


The Green Room Surf Shop

We hope to reduce our surfing communities environmental impact by inspiring new surfers to engage in more sustainable surfing practices, and by promoting technology and practices that reflect our commitment to protect the ocean.

We hope to do this by offering responsibly sourced merchandise, raising environmental awareness through educational events, and taking a proactive approach in protecting the ocean, so that future generations will also be graced with moments of connection with nature.


The Green Room is proud to be supporting Hometree; a grassroots environmental group who are planting trees in our back garden. Our 100 trees (and hopefully more and more in the coming years) sit alongside thousands of others thanks to the support of similar likeminded companies. We urge you to check out their good work and get involved at
