The Peak in Donegal is an exposed reef break that has quite consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the southeast. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the west. Reef breaks provide lefts and rights. Best around low tide. Sometimes crowded.
