Lahinch

(4.4/5 based on 1,400+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: adventure, beaches, golf
Home to a renowned gulf club, Lahinch has become better known as a surfing spot in recent years. Situated on County Clare's northwest coast, this seaside resort provides a haven for surfers and even has its own surf school. The many earth forts and medieval ruins make it obvious that the village was inhabited in ancient times. Ride the waves, kayak, or explore the coastline's historical sights here, then experience the village's restaurants, bars, and lodging, which have popped up to accommodate tourists.

Where to stay

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.
