It’s safe to say that there are many remarkable spots to be found in the country of Ireland. And when it comes to the town of Lahinch, “remarkable” applies in a definitive way that dates back centuries. Lahinch is part of County Clare, and is named so from the Irish “An Leacht” which translates to “The Memorial Cairn of O’Connor” denoting the place where one of the chieftains of that clan was laid to rest. The town lies on Liscannor Bay, and goes as far back as to when Danish Vikings first roamed its hills. From that point, Lahinch grew from a small hamlet to a charming town of the Wild Atlantic Way coast that overlooks a golden beach that’s two kilometers (1.2 miles) long and the fervent waters of the bay. Sport is a true highlight of the area – Lahinch is often referred to at times as “the St. Andrews of Ireland”, as golf has been a mainstay here since the 1890’s. The local golf course is a favorite of enthusiasts of the sport, and they have seen the influx of people coming to enjoy the local green. The other sport making Lahinch popular? Surfing, as many longboarders have come to hang ten on its offshore waves. There’s a couple of intriguing things about Lahinch and in keeping with the spirit of the Irish, there are also a few places where one can grab some rest and comfort while exploring the area. Read on further about some of the best Airbnb vacation rentals to be found for your trip to Lahinch, Ireland.
