Cornish Reef in Clare is an exposed reef break that has quite consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. The best wind direction is from the east with some shelter here from south winds. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the west. There is no reef break. Best around mid tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Take care of rocks and rips.
