Lahinch Surf School


In case you hadn't heard, Lahinch is one of the top surfing destinations in Ireland. Add in some world class waves rolling in from the Wild Atlantic Sea, and some of Irelands most experienced instructors, and we have a recipe for smiles all around!

Established in 2002 by Former Irish Champion and Pro Surfer John McCarthy, Lahinch Surf School was the first of it’s kind on the West Coast of Ireland. Joining John, his wife Rachel, and Manager Stuart is their crew of stoked instructors. You won’t meet a nicer bunch of surfers along the Wild Atlantic Way!

Whether you are an absolute first timer or a seasoned professional, our aim at Lahinch Surf School is to patiently take you through the complete surf experience and to have a lot of fun while doing it. Our Motto is “Friendly, Safe and Fun!”. All equipment is provided along with one of our fully qualified Irish Surfing Association Surf Instructors. Each Lahinch Surf School lesson is 2 hours long, 80-90 minutes of which are spent in the water. Lessons are held in waist deep water so you don't need to be an amazing swimmer!

The most popular choices for adult surfers are the 2 Hour Surf Lessons and the Weekend Surf Courses. For Teens and Kids we offer School Tour packages, and Surf Camps in Summer & School holidays. To book a lesson or to find out more information see, or give us a call on 087 9609667.
