Fairly settled weather for Dublin and Sligo from Saturday on – with not much in the way of surf for the East coast. Donegal Bay will have fun beginner friendly waves at exposed beaches like Tullan. Wind sports enthusiasts will have to make the most of what is on offer Friday.

East Coast – Dublin Area

Surf Forecast

  • Friday: No waves today. Winds fairly light in the afternoon – could be good to go paddle boarding.

  • Sunday: No waves today. Very still in the morning so good time to go paddle boarding.

  • Monday: No surf today.

  • Saturday: 7-13 knots from the ESE – should be enough for some foil action.

  • Monday: 7-13 knots for a short time during the middle of the day. Migbt be enough to get out on wind, wing or kite foil.

West Coast – Donegal Bay

Surf Forecast

  • Friday: No real swell today. Winds from the NNW giving bumpy conditions.

  • Saturday: 0.9m north west swell at 9 seconds. Should be enough for beginners on exposed beaches.

  • Sunday: 0.9 metre west swell at 11 seconds. Winds will be very light from the East before switching into the north west but remaining light. Should be waves at Tullan where it will magnify the swell.

NB: This is all subject to change at short notice. This being Ireland weather systems are volatile and a forecast made even the night before can change over night. Hopefully this forecast blog can give a good prediction of what will happen in the days ahead so you can plan the days you look to go on the water but it is always a good idea to check more location specific forecasting models before you go both to know what equipment to bring and for safety.
