There's a few threads on this already, and on how to forecast waves in the area. Some of it is trial and error too but here's a couple of things that will get you started.
  • Magicseaweed Dublin Area:
    http://magicseaweed.com/Dublin-Area-Surf-Report/694/
    Very fickle forecasting for the area when it comes to smaller waves but good to see if there will be swell around in the future and wind/swell direction.

  • Met.ie Buoy Reports:
    http://www.met.ie/latest/buoy.asp
    M2 is off Howth Head, M5 is off Hook Head. In general if you have a Wave Height reading greater than 1.8m on M2 you'll have waves, it's a bit more fickle and depends on wind/swell direction when it comes to reading it off M5 buoy.

  • Brittas Bay Surf School:

    New school setup in Brittas recently, they do eyeball reports most days.

As I said, some of it will be trial and error. Keep an eye on the forecasts and what works when. You'll get the hang of it and start to see patterns of when there's waves in Maghermore.
