Latest news from the DAC

Hi – time for one of our occasional updates letting you know how things are going here and most importantly, a couple of definite dates for you diary.

We have just finished our highly successful FÁS beach lifeguard & surf instructor pilot programme and our own Outdoor Instructor courses and I am very happy to say not only did we have a super bunch of candidates this year but between ourselves and other surf schools nearly all of them have decided to stay in the outdoor industry and have found employment there.

We will be running an outdoor instructor course in October 2012 and we hope to run another FÁS course then too. Please contact us on for details.

We have 2 big festivals coming up this year – The Rory Gallagher festival on the June Bank Holiday has really upped its game with bigger headliners than ever . However Sea sessions June 29th – July 1st ain’t going to be outdone and have announced a huge line up including the Happy Mondays & the Kaiser Chiefs .

We have pretty much sold out for Sea sessions – There are about 3 rooms left. We have 6 rooms left for Rory G – Accommodation for both buildings always sells out for both these weekends so if you fancy it, book very soon.

July and August are dominated by our family & teen camps – while we have set aside separate accommodation for Stags / hens and other mad party people so everyone can have the own sort of holiday without having to worry about other people.

We will be announcing our brilliant family deals & camps just after Easter to coincide with our new website which will (hopefullyJ ) be launched around the same time. Our Teen summer camps go from strength to strength but we have launched a new special deal for families whose kids have been to the Adventure Centre before called Alumni August. Best. Surfcamp. Deal. Ever.

Niamh is still studying away in the USA  but she will be back in the summer with a gang of Americans, Ken, Kyle, Dickie, Ciara Rachel, Shiv, Nelis , Johnny, Paul (who got engaged awwww) Trish,  Fiddy (plus even more tattoos) and all the usual headcases are still here and we can’t wait to introduce to  our new staff to you.

Hope life is fantastic and hope to see you soon.
