Beach Nature / Park
Hit the waves at Lahinch Beach, a seaside resort and popular location for sports like kitesurfing, windsurfing, and surfing. 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.

  • 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
  • A great safe beach

Where to stay in Lahinch

The beach and town center are within walking distance of each other, so choosing a place to stay doesn't have to be a toss-up in Lahinch. Most visitors to this coastal destination come for the famous surfing or golf course, but the town offers plenty of options for every kind of visitor and budget. The town's hostel is popular with young surfers or backpackers traveling on a shoestring budget, while cozy bed and breakfasts, vacation home rentals, and fine hotels are a good fit for those with a bit more to spend.
