Overview

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.

Visited here with 3 friends in November 2017. I’ve had lessons before but I have to say that Alan - our instructor was the best teacher I’ve ever had. We had a great morning.
