The Newquay of Ireland! Lahinch (Lehinch) has a few different waves. The easiest and the best for beginners is the main beach break. There are left and rights to surf and when it is breaking it is usually pretty mellow. Great to begin with before moving onto some of the better waves in the area.
Check out what is happening surfwize at the Lahinch Surf Shop website http://www.lahinchsurfshop.com. They also have a webcam if you want an eyeball surf check.
Follow the spent wax wrappers all the way to Lehinch.Access & Parking Info / Cost
