Lahinch is a lively seaside resort, located at the mouth of Liscannor Bay in County Clare. This is a popular destination for families who love the fun of the mile-long golden beach, the dunes, the scenic walks along the Atlantic coast, the swimming and the fishing. However, it's for surfing and golf that Lahinch has become internationally known. The village has been a magnet for surfers since the 1960s, despite some hazardous currents, and in 1972 it hosted the European Surf Championships. In 2006, some 44 surfers in Lahinch broke the existing world record for the number of people on one wave. Windsurfing and kitesurfing are among other watersports practised here. Meanwhile, Lahinch golf club - "the St Andrew's of Ireland" - attracts players from all over the world to its challenging championship courses with their wonderful, windswept views over the ocean. The village has plenty of attractions of its own, from welcoming pubs, restaurants, gift shops and galleries to the Seaworld aquarium, leisure centre, swimming pool and well- appointed gym. Sight-seers will be impressed by the nearby remains of Dough Castle, the famously spectacular Cliffs of Moher, only a short drive away, and the magnificent limestone landscapes of The Burren.
