Carrownisky Surf Guide

Carrownisky in Mayo and Achill Island is a reasonably exposed beach break that has very reliable surf and works all around the year. The best wind direction is from the east and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Light onshore winds ruin the qulaity Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the best swell direction is from the west northwest. Waves at the beach break both left and right. Good surf at all stages of the tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Dangerous rips are a hazard of surfing here.
