Lahinch – The Region
Lahinch is a small seaside village on the Atlantic coast in Co. Clare.
Located 45 minutes from Shannon International Airport, Lahinch is famous throughout the world of golf since the 1890’s while, in more recent years, it has become a very popular international surfing destination.
One of the traditional features of Lahinch is the manner in which the golf club and village go hand in hand. As the first time visitor or long standing member clears the hill between Ennistymon and Lahinch and casts an eye over the golf courses to the right, the houses straight ahead and the broad Atlantic Ocean beyond, they know that a special place lies in wait.
Lahinch is a key destination on the Wild Atlantic Way, located on the edge of the Burren National Park (UNESCO recognised Global and European Geopark) and only 10km from one of the world’s great natural wonders, the Cliffs of Moher, while the Aran Islands can be accessed by ferry from Doolin.
