The beach is one of the foremost surfing locations in Ireland, and the site of a world record in which 44 surfers rode a single small wave at one time. Perfect your swing at the 36-hole Lahinch golf club, or explore by cycling, hiking, or pony trekking. Take some time to learn about the area's long history--several earth forts indicate the area was inhabited in ancient times, including a prominent one believed to have been built by Danish Vikings.

Great refreshing walk. The Atlantic wind will really wake you up along this beach. The tide was in when we were there and the waves on the rocks were just worth looking at.

Lovely beach. It was very busy when we went but it is such a long beach it did not feel overcrowded. There is plenty of parking and clean public toilets.

It was lovely indeed. I was in a nice boutique & made a purchase. Staff member very pleasant at the Woolen Mills. We had a meal at Kenny's bar & Restaurant, 5 stars I must say & reasonably priced too. We really enjoyed our visit.
Surfers paradise, rough tide dashing against massive constructed boulder seafront wall. Plenty of convenient good facilities for visitors, including clean public toilets at the beach front. The town itself is lovely, full of quaint and quirky shops, restaurants and galleries. But extremely busy with humans, from everywhere, for the Covid times we are battling with right now!
No masks. What delightful change and so welcome. Waves were medium water fresh but not too cold. Plenty of space great sun go before it rains. The only downside is the construction opposite of the parking area, that was quite noisy. The Atlantic ocean is beautiful as ever, no matter covid-20.
Beautiful clean beach. Good surf shop offering lessons. Lovely walks and the stunning Lahinch golf course next to it.
A lovely sandy beach for swimming and surfing. We had amazing shots with our drone. The only problem is to get a nice weather during your visit. Checking weather app was not of much help as weather keeps changing every hour. We were soaked when trying to get nice shots. There's a lovely food truck, surfing school and playground nearby. Car park is amble but was surprised to know it a pay and display one. Swimming is allowed between 2 flags and surfing is just outside that area so it is nice if you are doing either.
