Known to some as the cold water "Indonesia," Ireland is home to a lively surf culture and all manner of breaks -- beach, points and reef -- of which some are perfectly angled to catch nearly any swell powering its way through the North Atlantic. This includes spots like Mullaghmore Head in County Sligo known for big waves such as the 12+-meter monsters that came through with the "Black Swell" during the first week of 2014 (a marvel of massive waves generated by a series of low pressure systems in the Atlantic). As cruelly inhospitable as the cold season of such a northerly destination may seem, winter is prime surf season in Ireland, with September through May brings the biggest waves and clearest water. Bundoran, a quaint centuries-old fishing village, tends to be the center of the Irish surf scene, featuring not only a smattering of excellent breaks in nearby areas but also a lively pub culture serving up national favorites like cold Guinness and oysters, raucous Irish tunes, and chatty locals who might just give you their take on the local wave offerings. Buy them a beer and ask nicely (then be prepared for a long night of drinking, Irish style!).

On the Emerald Isle’s west coast, passion for pubs, music, and surf culture collides. The town of Bundoran has played host to the European Surfing Championships four times, and a good old-fashioned pub crawl is within walking distance of the main reef break. Some of Ireland’s top rock bands regularly jam into the wee hours at bars like Chasin’ Bull. Its counterpoint is 114-year-old Brennan’s Criterion Bar, whose no-music policy encourages lively conversation.
