  • A good beach to go to on a sunny day! Tide comes quite close to the shore so is nice to view that. Can be pretty cold on windy days.  more »
  • This beach is huge! The area is very pretty and clean. There is a nice walkway along the upper part of the beach. A must see if you are visiting Lahinch.  more »
  • Lahinch beach is a lovely curve. There are many huge rocks to protect the beach from wild weather. A promenade goes along most of it.  more »
