About Lahinch Surf School
Lahinch Surf School is about Friendly, Safe, Fun in the surf.Established by John McCarthy, three times Irish Senior Surf Champion, John established Co.Clare's first Surf School to share his love and 'stoke' for surfing. Lahinch Surf School has stayed true to that dream ever since. When we're not surfing big waves at the Cliffs of Moher (the wave John named "Aileens"), you'll will find us at our 'Beach Hut' on the promenade.The positive ions are infectious dude! Courses: Outside of doing a single two hour lesson any day of the year, our most popular courses are the 'Weekend Surf Course' for adults, which is 3 fun lessons over the weekend and our Kids(9-12), Teens(13-18) and Grom(6-8) Camps in school holidays.You are welcome to come join the fun at Lahinch Surf School.

Our instructors were Paddy, Eli and Maeve. All three were really so kind and helpful and offered tips throughout to improve your skills. I was absolutely terrible but they never stopped trying to help me or any of the others stand up on their boards....More

We had a lovely class in the surf school, the instructor was absolutely amazing. I cant remember his name but he also teaches in Portugal with his girlfriend I think. Also, it was great to finish the day in the jacuzzi! Thanks!
