Lahinch Surf School is based at the beach hut on Lahinch promenade in Lahinch County Clare on the west coast of Ireland and provides a friendly, safe and fun introduction to the exhilarating art of surfing. Former Irish Surf Champion John McCarthy and his crew of surf-dude instructors invite you and your friends to come and experience the thrill and excitement of surfing at Ireland’s best known Surf School. John started Lahinch Surf School out of a desire to surf and live on the west coast and to share the thrill and ‘STOKE’ of surfing. You are very welcome to Lahinch Surf School where surfing classes and surf lessons come highly recommended.

They say you can’t stop the waves but you can learn how to surf 🙂 #surfingishighlyaddictive #lahinchurfschool
