Situated in a far corner of Grand Canal Dock you will find a big, battered old ship named the Naom Eanna. This old lady is no longer used for what she was built, but instead has become the home to the Surfdock guys and their shop. As one review of them says – “A shop in a ship….what’s not to like!”.
Inside you will find a shop selling all you will need for watersports and more. The very helpful staff will be more than happy to give you advice if you are a novice.
Now Surfdock is not just a shop. They are a watersports school, who have been in the business for 20 years. They provide education, facilities and the gear necessary to do Paddle-boarding, Kayaking, Kitesurfing and Windsurfing. They can provide classes to groups, corporate days, kids birthdays and school outings. All at very reasonable and competitive prices.
So if you are on a visit to Dublin and are looking for something more out of your city break Surfdock might just be for you. Even on bad days – which lets be honest Ireland has more than its fair share – it can be fun. Sure that’s what wetsuits are for!
They have also recently opened Wakedock, Ireland’s first fixed cable wakeboarding park. Doing classes for beginners and the more experienced, if you are the active type than this is for you.
Watersports may not be the first thing to think of on a city break, but with Surfdock it should be!
