Lahinch Beach, Lahinch
(4.7/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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!
  • Nice clean spot with good spots for food and great surf schools
  • Lovely beach, very exposed so can be a bit cooler with the wind but still clean and easily accessed with a surf school and life guard watching the swimmers/surfers at times.
  • I will never get bored about that place, it could be very busy during sunny weekends. Great place to learn wind/kite surfing.
  • Love it.
