John Kelly, Ireland.
"Had a brilliant time touring around Ireland with Ryan. Well organized trip and explored a lot of hidden gems. I progressed a lot with my kitesurfing and wave riding skills. Overall a great experience that I look forward to doing again in the future. A big shout out to Ryan who always ensured everyone was safe and had a good time."
Ronald Laag, Holland.
"Ireland is just beautiful. And what a great place for kitesurfing. Ryan knows all spots and takes you to wherever conditions are best for riding. I never thought I would really enjoy waves but his enthusiasm, knowledge and tuition skills even made me buy a directional board. Definitely coming back again to really attack some waves! And to enjoy more of the beautiful nature, good food and drinks, and great company."
Dave Mc Sweeny, Ireland.
"Ryan is an extremely patient instructor and his method of teaching is very effective (I was up and running by the end of the second lesson). Ryan runs a very slick, professional operation and I would describe him like an extremely positive, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic Air Traffic Controller as he has the ability to patiently talk you through every step of the lesson/kite flight (he even has a speaker system in his helmets which I found saved on huge amount of time). He also takes some pics and videos to help with your full understanding of the drills/exercises etc which is handy to draw on days and weeks after the lesson.
Overall and most importantly, I would say that Ryan has given me the confidence to go Kitesurfing SAFELY. I highly recommend Kitesurfireland and a visit to the Dingle Peninsula.
Life is too short life, not too….You won't be disappointed."
Burkhard Blum, Germany.
If you're looking for an experienced instructor from beginner to pro-level in kiting he's your man too!
I really enjoyed the time with him and all the variety Kitesurfing in Ireland has to offer."
Laura D Germany.
"This is how kite trips should be. I booked in for a week-long tour and got everything you would want from a kite trip. Amazing spots around the Dingle peninsula for all conditions and skill levels. With Ryan a guide who knows them all. He was not only our guide but also our teacher in all things wave kiting and we learned loads. Not just technique and how to stay safe out there but also the love for the ocean and the amazing playground wind and waves provide. Top that with good food and learning a thing or two about local history that is all I want from a kite trip. I‘ll be back for sure and will highly recommend the area and Ryan as a guide and teacher to whoever asks."
Mike Smith, the USA
"A group of friends and I recently took a weeklong kite tour of Ireland with Kitesurf Ireland and I can't recommend it enough. Ryan Coote is a world-class kitesurfer, fantastic tour guide, and all around good guy! He will take you to the best kiting spots (we traveled around NW Ireland because of a storm that brought the wind!) depending on conditions/skill level and is a wealth of knowledge on kitesurfing. I learned so much on our weeklong trip. He deserves the highest recommendation"
Kristian Werkley, USA
"Ryan puts on an amazing trip, with a perfect mix of sight-seeing and kitesurfing. His knowledge of the areas and how to kite them is unbelievable. He pays attention to everyone's interests and makes adjustments to the tour on the fly to accommodate. Highly recommended if you ever had an interest in kiting Ireland. Five stars!"
Chris Dardaris, USA
"Ryan is a world class kiter and a first class tour guide. He went above and beyond to accommodate the needs of everyone on the tour, from finding the right riding conditions to booking the right accommodations. 5 of us spend 6 days in a van traveling to remote points in Belmullet to the popular reefs of Bundoran. Ryan managed the group with expert hospitality and limitless geniality. If your going to kitesurf Ireland this is an amazing way to do it."
Andy Millington, Ireland/Holland
"Under the ever watchful eye of Ryan (usually floating 40ft above me), I enjoyed an incredible 5 days of wave riding and jumps in my favorite place in the world. He is a true Waterman with a wealth of knowledge and respect for the whole coast of Ireland and all its conditions. I didn't go for lessons, but lessons I got. Everything from Kitesurf survival to wheatgrass smoothies. The only thing as good as the kiting was the banter. Thanks again, Ryan. Can't wait to get back."
Elliot A, Canada
"Had some amazing coaching with Ryan! We went to different spots every day looking for the best conditions to kite. I also had a cultural experience from this beautiful part of Ireland thanks to Ryan! Overall would 100% recommend!"
Pol Senior, Belgium
We had a fantastic week with Ryan. Every day we went to a new spot, chasing waves and wind. Every day a new sensation of magnificent waves, beaches, and beautiful unspoiled nature.
Ryan is the perfect guide for this amazing road trip and will do anything to make you happy. After this trip, we all decided that we would come back to Ireland and to Brandon Bay. Keep on surfing Ryan you are the best.
Peter C, Belgium
Brandon Bay is a must for every dedicated (kite)wave surfer, smoothly organized by former Irish champion Ryan Coote who took us on a road trip along with his west coast and its hidden treasures!! Cya Ryan. We will be back! Thank you, again, for being a hell of a tour guide ;)Mike Pavan, Canada
One of the things about the Dingle peninsula is that there are not loads of people who surf or kitesurf - and the conditions and locations are great for it. Take the wind and a bit of rain and boom - you have a sport that you can do in the Irish weather!
I got started learning to kitesurf last weekend, and I am hooked. Ryan, the owner of the business, is a great mix of laid-back but meticulous, making sure that you learn how to rig your own equipment, understand the wind, and learn your basic skills of kite control before you progress to new skills and advancements. He also progresses you through different sizes of kites and lines as you do this, which keeps things challenging as well as great fun.
I would highly recommend Kitesurf Ireland and Ryan to try out this really awesome water sport! (I've just completed my 3rd lesson, and cannot wait to keep going!)
Kristian came on tour. I think he enjoyed himself a lot.
You have two options: you can travel with Ryan in his 7-seater KiteSurf van (recommended) or rent your own car and have more independence. (The cost of renting your own car is extra.)
All transport to beaches is included in the cost. Transport to activities other than kitesurfing -such as mountain biking, climbing or fishing – can be arranged at an additional cost. There will be plenty of time to discuss these options on the day.
IRELAND IS THE LAND OF CIAD MILE FAILTE meaning 100,000 WELCOMES in the Irish language.
We will be sampling that welcomes the local guest houses and B&B around Ireland. As we will be chasing the swell and the wind all day, when night falls you will be driven to your resting place where you will be watered and fed and rested, ready for the next day’s riding.

1.You cant bear the thought of hauling your kite gear through airports.( who can blame you airports dont make it easy or cheap) and there is always the chance that it wont even turn up or worse turn up damaged.
2.You just can't decide which kite or board to bring. Need advice just ask!
3. You spotted a killer forecast that you are going to fly in, and you need gear to use for a few days. If so call us or drop an email and we can sort you out for everything: Airport pick up, B@B, kite gear rental - the lot.
4.You can't fit it in after everything has been packed into the car or camper for the family.
5.Maybe you are just heading away for the weekend with your mates and your kites are damaged or you may need a smaller or bigger kite or board to guarantee quality time on the water. Or maybe you just want to try out a board design.
6.You want to give a kite or board a good testing with thought of buying it. If you rent it you get your rental cost off the new price of new gear, when you buy the gear within 2 weeks of rental.
The solution? Rent kitesurfing equipment !
