Completed the intro course in 2011 with Freedive Ireland, professional and informative training which was great craic to boot! Even the most complex topics seem simple thanks to Feargus' relaxed teaching style, and I recommend giving it a go to anyone interested in swimming/surfing/anything water related. It's not extreme, it's relaxing and enjoyable. The breathing, stretching and relaxation skills can... More

Not being a strong swimmer or experienced in open water, I was nervous before the day started but I found this course unbelievably amazing. With the techniques learned in the morning and practiced in the pool, I was relaxed and had the confidence to go out there and give my all. A great mentor and a genuinely nice guy, Feargus... More

I spent a whole day in Mullaghmore under the excellent instruction of fergus. The day was well structured and it flew by. Fergus is very personable and really easy to be around. I never felt uncomfortable at any stage when I was diving in the water and knew I was in safe hands if anything did go wrong. I feel... More

I got what I desired form the Free Dive Level 1 Course, and more. Learned relaxation techniques- I was new to the whole Apnea experience which I highly recommend. I learned more theory/physiology related to under water human performance. The Dive Reflex is fascinating ! Fergus is most professional, a great Instructor, Safety, Focus and Fun are all part of...

After doing the introductory course back in March (see previous review), I was hooked and applied to do the Level 1 AA certification as soon as possible. It did not disappoint. The course was held over 3 days in Mullaghmore, a beautiful little village in Co. Sligo. With both a swimming pool and the Atlantic Ocean on the other side... More

Starting with snorkling last year, I soon got fascinated by the underwater world and was looking for ways to improve my technique in order to stay under water for longer. Feargus held a very interesting talk about freediving at the Dive Ireland Expo in Athlone which made me book a course with him. He brings messages accross clearly, comes to... More

Although Freedive Ireland is based in Sligo, I was very pleased to find that they also carry out Apnea discovery courses throughout Ireland and on occasion Northern Ireland. I had heard a number of excellent reports from SCUBA divers who had found that techniques and breathing exercises taught on the course helped them remain calm in the water. The course... More
