Lahinch Surf School is based at the beach hut on Lahinch promenade in Lahinch County Clare on the west coast of Ireland and provides a friendly, safe and fun introduction to the exhilarating art of surfing.


Irish Surf Champion

Former Irish Surf Champion John McCarthy and his crew of surf-dude instructors invite you and your friends to come and experience the thrill and excitement of surfing at Ireland’s best known Surf School. John started Lahinch Surf School out of a desire to surf and live on the west coast and to share the thrill and ‘STOKE’ of surfing. You are very welcome to Lahinch Surf School where surfing classes and surf lessons come highly recommended.

Making Surfing Easy

We have Ireland’s biggest range of surf school surfboards. From 10 foot monster boards, that make surfing easy for taller/stronger people, to 6 foot short boards, we have you covered. No matter what your surfing ability or experience, our aim is to make surfing easy for you. That’s when it gets fun!


Surfing Together

We organise our lessons in different ways. We have Family, Adult, Teens, Kids (9-12yrs) and Grom (6-8yrs) groups. One of the keys to becoming a better surfer is having fun with people of your age or experience. The easier it is, the more fun you have. Our head instructors have been with us since 2002! What we don’t know about surfing, isn’t on the radar!
