Lahinch

Home to a renowned gulf club, Lahinch has become better known as a surfing spot in recent years. Situated on County Clare's northwest coast, this seaside resort provides a haven for surfers and even has its own surf school. The many earth forts and medieval ruins make it obvious that the village was inhabited in ancient times. Ride the waves, kayak, or explore the coastline's historical sights here, then experience the village's restaurants, bars, and lodging, which have popped up to accommodate tourists.
