Negative Reviews

Storing Boards and Gear Can be Difficult

Many guests pointed out that storing wet gear after a day of surfing can be difficult, especially in the dormitory-style rooms that don't have a lot of storage space.

The Only Televisions Are in Common Areas

Guests mentioned that the Bundoran Surf Lodge is not setup to do much more than sleep in the rooms, as there are no televisions in rooms. So, if you like to watch television before bed, you will have the inconvenience of having to go to one of the common areas and share a television with whoever is there.

Coffee and Tea Are Not Available in Rooms

Several guests said that they would have liked the ability to make their own coffee and tea in their rooms, rather than having to go into one of the common areas where the coffee and tea making facilities are kept.
