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.

  • Weekends are crazy crowded, during the week, just nice. Lots of places to eat and drink. The Ice Cream store is the hot spot. Ask for Fergal, great guy.
  • Lahinch will always have a special place in my heart. Beautiful beach and Kennys Bar should not be missed!
  • All people saying there aren't any nice beaches in Ireland are proven wrong. This is one of the most beautiful beaches we've ever been to (we had tremendously good weather tho) and the town of Lahinch is lovely, too. Definitely a must go place if you're near by and the sun is shining!
  • Beautiful beach. Recommend taking a walk and enjoying some periwinkles
  • The sea was rough today. The Wild Atlantic Way lived up to its name today.
