Popular travel video bloggers the Vagabrothers have released a brand new online video showing them surfing in Strandhill.
Called ‘Surfing in Ireland’, the video blog is the first in a series of nine which the Californian brothers – Marko and Alex Ayling – will publish over the coming weeks.
Last month, Tourism Ireland enlisted the help of the Vagabrothers to showcase some of our top visitor attractions and experiences to prospective holidaymakers around the world. In the first video, we see them check out some of the many things to see and do in Sligo.
The video showcases the spectacular scenery and shows the brothers meeting Séamus McGolderick of Surf Ireland and try their hand at surfing at Strandhill.
They describe their surfing experience as “unforgettable” and the “best way I’ve ever started any trip”.
They go on to experience a Voya Seaweed Bath and meet Voya’s Neil Walton. They chat with Jane Lamberth in Shells Café and enjoy an “epic hike” to the top of Knocknarea Mountain with marine archaeologist Auriel Robinson (who’s also a Wild Atlantic Way ambassador).
They also describe the sunset in Sligo as “one of the most spectacular sunsets I have ever seen”. They stayed in the Strandhill Lodge & Suites and enjoyed dinner (and a pint of Guinness) in The Venue Bar and Restaurant in Strandhill.
The films will be shared by the brothers on YouTube, on Instagram and on Twitter (@vagabrothers).
