Lahinch (from 'O'Connor's Grave Mound' but originally 'Leath Inse' or peninsula) is a very popular golf, surfing and bathing seaside resort that is within cycling distance (3km) of Ennistymon, while ten-minutes drive to the north lie the breath taking Cliffs of Moher which rise 700ft above sea level. The town itself has many pubs, restaurants, amusements and accommodation to offer its visitor.
It is famous the world over for a 2km beach of golden sand that is perfect for bathing, swimming or surfing. Across the road from the beach is Lahinch Seaworld and Leisure complex, complete with a 25m heated swimming pool, a children's pool, a jacuzzi and a sauna room for people who can stand the heat! If you would prefer a more relaxing outdoor pursuit then try one of the two 18 hole golf courses Lahinch has offer. At O'Brien's Bridge, near the northern tip of Liscannor Bay, between Lahinch and Liscannor, where the Dealagh River enters the sea, are the ruins of Dough Castle, built by Donnchadh O'Connor in 1422. Also in this vicinity is Kilmacreehy Church, dating from the 15th century, consisting of nave and chancel. The chancel has deeply splayed east window and a decorated recess in the north wall.
The wide smile on the generous mouth of a broad bay is the glinting fine-grained golden expanse of beach fronting a dunes system with twin golf courses. Ireland has one-third of the world's coastal links courses and Lahinch has two of them. And the older championship course is ranked among the best in the world. The beach offers excellent surfing and the bay is renowned as a top sea angling destination. Protected by the stone-faced shield of the towering Cliffs of Moher, all-weather facilities at the bright and breezy seaside resort includes the Seaworld sea-life and leisure centre close to the fine beachside promenade. Here visitors can now see and experience the underwater life of the Atlantic coast. Sharks, rays and conger eels; starfish, lobsters and flatfish can all be viewed in a giant aquarium. Also there, is a unique recreation of a "blow hole" wave explosion, demonstrating the power of the ocean as it beats against the Clare coastline. The walks along the beach are wonderful. Surfing lessons available at Lahinch surfing school all year round and this area of Co. Clare is quickly becoming a mecca with surfers from all over the world.
