Lahinch, Co. Clare

Equally well known for the powerful Atlantic rollers that bring tremendous surfing and for the area’s outstanding golf courses, Lahinch is a bustling town with its fair quota of bars and restaurants and several outstanding places to stay and dine within the vicinity.

A busy seaside resort, popular for its long beach, golf courses, promenade and surfing.  Visitors can enjoy walks along the beautiful sandy beach, or try some surfing or fishing. 

Lahinch is an excellent base from which to explore the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher (Visitors Centre tel: +353 (0) 65 708 1171), open all year) and there are a number of cave systems nearby such as the Aillwee caves (+353 (0) 65 707 7036, open all year) and the Doolin caves (+353 (0) 65 7075761, open all year).  Bunratty Castle and folk park (+353 (0) 61 360 788, open all year) is worth a visit and there are also heritage centres nearby which provide interesting local information. 

Horse riding is available locally and golfers will enjoy the 18 hole championship golf course (+353 (0) 65 708 1003). 

The mediaeval county town of Ennis, ‘the music capital of Clare’, is easily accessible (and, as the main road junction of  Co Clare, most visitors soon become very familiar with it).

Doolin, with its music pubs and ferries to the Aran Islands, is just a short scenic drive away;  the hilly Burren  area of north Clare, is on the doorstep - its unique flora is at its best in early summer, but you can visit the Burren Perfumery at Carron all year except Christmas, and they have delightful tea rooms.
