New dates 2020

Dear All,
We hope you are ok in those very challenging times.

We are all sad about postponing our annual Gathering. However I hope we all agree there is more important things these days than having fun on the beach. Our time will come again, very soon we hope, but for the moment we are all together going through this hard time. We hope everyone is safe and we will update new dates for our Dollymount Festival as soon as we can. It may be in 2020 or later, who knows yet, we will follow all the guidelines. One thing for sure, we will be back! One day… and it will be as magical as ever.

See you soon on the beach,
Stay Safe, stay positive

Dollymount, Ireland – 16th – 17th May 2020


The event takes place on Dollymount Beach at Bull Island, Clontarf/ Raheny, Dublin 3/5. – Google Map

Wind conditions at Dollymount are generally very good, the beach is considered to be one of the best kitesurfing spots in the world! And is on the doorstep of Dublin’s city centre.

It is a magical spot with the beautiful surroundings of the nature reserve at Bull Island and the occasional flaming sunset colors. Shallow waters and 4 km of sandy beaches makes this spot a heaven for kitesurfers. Thanks to the local authorities and the action of IKSA, KItesurfing has been growing there in a very sustainable way and it is with great pride that we try to keep it like that! When the wind dies, Bull Island is the perfect heaven for Stand-up Paddle boarders, cruise around the island, surf the Ferry Wave or Explore the majestic Ireland ‘s Eye!

Keep safe and respect your environment! Please leave no trace.
