Owner description: 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 'Surf Centre and Cafe' on main street, Lahinch or 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(5-8) Camps in school holidays.You are welcome to come join the fun at Lahinch Surf School.

I was surfing for the first time in my life. And it was awesome! It was hard, but I still was happy because it was something new to me, interesting and now I want to surf everyday of my life. Thanks for the greatest experience ever! Instructors were so nice and inspiring(:

“Wow!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

This has got to be one of the most amazing experiences in my life. John and Oscar were the perfect instructors and helped us catch more than a couple waves and given the size of our group (15) getting the individual chats and advise was phenomenal. They are so attentive. If your out Lahinch way, look them up!

“amazing guys!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

The guys at the surf school were great! They helped us a lot, were very instructive, and they even followed your progress with every wave, while continuously giving us good tips. The suits were good and clean and they had all sizes. They even let us go shower in the Complex next door and return the suits after as it was freezing outside.
thanks guys!

Great friendly instructor which gives extremely useful tips. Good equipment. Nice place. After three lessons all of us started to surf! I would definitely recommend to get a few lessons here to get addicted by surfing.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Aching all over this morning after two days with patient Pat the instructor......anyone who can get this poor excuse of a 50 year old body to stand up on a surf board deserves a medal. We dragged ourselves out of bed Sunday morning for the best 2hour hangover cure of all time.Take advantage of the great weekend B/B deal they have with the Lahinch Golf and Leisure hotel......great experience and we will return. To see a small business doin well in the current economic climate is wonderful..but no surprise when run and staffed by genuinely nice people who just love what they do. Thanks John for organising everything and best wishes with the new addition!!!!!
