It was one of the spots to hit on our Wild Atlantic Way trip - totally worth it! As it was late October, not the high season, the beach was pretty empty, but still pretty. A good place to see the ocean for the first...More

Lahinch Beach is a very pretty beach in the seaside town. It was October--off season, but still busting with surfers and people strolling the sand. It was a nice treat to get to the water and take in the scene.

This is such a unique beach. Beautiful sunsets and the huge number of surfers even in October was very cool to see. Its a great place to have a glass of wine and watch the sun go down.

This is a bit of a surfers mecca, holden sands and great waves. I just like if as a place to wander. There is parking next to the beach and Lahinch itself is right there so after a bracing walk along the beach you can...More

Had a lovely walk along this beautiful beach. Plenty parking, it's pay and display but not too expensive. Lovely coffee shops etc. Nice to sit and watch the world go by with a cuppa. There is a loo near the carpark.

Great for a day out and about! The weather was fabulous when we visited and the place was full! Lots of surfers and great for other sports like kayaking or scuba diving

Yes, I have seen horses being ridden on the beach and you can get down via a ramp, but the beach is not huge (not miles of coastline) but a large bay.
