Went to Lahinch last weekend and we were lucky enough to get the lovely weather
Walked up and down the beautiful beach pity it is so unexploited
Such a scenic place to visit,we were in Benidorm a couple of times and you cant imagine whats it like over there, very busy all year round,fantastic entertainment all built up,great choice of places to go,anyone that has been to Lahinch and Benidorm the only comparison is the beautiful beaches,but Benidorm has a lot of people working....
I can imagine what it would be like if some investors would come in and develop the sea front for what it is worth and that would draw more tourists,we went up and down the same street a few times(slipper street)
dropped into Kenny's pub for a few jars nice and friendly staff and nice photos on the walls of times gone bye
22 euros for a 10 ounce steak bit expensive but well worth it good grub in here
checked out the shamrock hotel and the atlantic hotel both next door to each other both lovely places to visit and also have nice and friendly staff
Not to sure about the name of the pub on the corner near the promenade,I think its the crows nest? hopefully someone might correct me as this pub is a nice place to visit the owner came across to me as a friendly chap and asked me to take a seat as he would bring down our drinks,nice touch
Dropped into Looneys bar and restaurant,very busy and a Que and wait to be seated system in force,cant be helped i suppose in a busy establishment,cant comment on the food as we only went in for a drink...got that and ventured out to the front
lovely views lovely place to chill out after a good walk around Lahinch with a fabulous view of the beach in a panoramic setting
Little did I realize when I parked my car along the promenade it was a pay and display system,found that out to my dismay
after arriving back from our lovely day out I saw The ticket on my windscreen,bit upsetting after a nice day,never realised you had to pay to park at Lahinch beach ...found out later on it costs 3euro for 10 hours parking? if I knew this I would have paid it.!.bad sign posts camouflage with all other signpost ????
Bit unfair I Think now I have to pay a bill of 40 euros......
my impression of Lahinch....blatant,discouraging,profiteering and shortsighted council...nice place to visit though!..but watch out for the parking notices ..if you can find them
