It is excellent for surfers and non-surfers alike, as it provides an isometric workout that strengthens your core muscle groups, while giving you a FUN and EXCITING way to view the natural surroundings. Whether its group lessons, private lesson, events, camps, or parties, you are in for top quality instruction and an awesome adventure from IRISHSUP, Ireland’s first and premier stand up paddle (SUP) boarding school. Learn in a safe and controlled environment with experienced and qualified ASI stand up paddle instructors, quality equipment and convenient locations.

Paddling a SUP is a great way to see the coast and rivers of Ireland and taking a lesson or going on a trip with IrishSUP is a great way to find your sea legs for stand up paddling. It's a great buzz.
