Lahinch Surf School

WELCOME to Lahinch Surf School

 Lahinch Surf School

Lahinch Surf School is based at the beach hut on Lahinch promenade on the west coast of Ireland and provides a safe, relaxed and affordable introduction to the exhilarating sport of surfing.

The two-mile long beach in Lahinch with its variety of breaks caters for novice, intermediate and experienced surfers. 5 miles further south you will find Spanish Point, another perfect surfing beach. Both are some of the best places in Europe to learn surfing with the advantage of the slower rolling Atlantic waves. John McCarthy, Former Irish Surf Champ and his crew of hardcore surfdude instructors, invites you and your friends to come and experience the thrill and excitement of surfing at Irelands best known SurfSchool. Catch the your own wave!
