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.

Hi Danny, Thank you for the review. We are delighted that you had an awesome time surfing with us. Those pesky compass jellyfish can be a nuisance but are not here often. Sometimes we have to share the ocean in order to enjoy the waves....More

I booked our time slot online, the pricing is very reasonable. I brought a friend who had never surfed before and she also had a blast. Great instruction, equipment provided, definitely something fun to do in the area that isn't just going to the cliffs.

Thanks to the lads for minding us when we were a bit delicate after the night before. The surf won't be long clearing the head and dodgy tummy from the night before. Thanks lads!!

Good man Mark!! We're glad the ocean was the cure for your delicate heads. Surfing is an amazing sport, it can do wonders for a person. Remember: "Surfing Is Highly Addictive"
