Traditional Music in Doolin
Home of traditional Irish music, the beautiful, picturesque village of Doolin is just a short drive away – offering a picture postcard treat of brightly-painted cottages, traditional shops and lively Irish pubs. After dinner at the hotel there’s no better way to spend the evening than taking a drive down to the village to sample the craic – the music, song and dance you’ll find on offer in every pub.
The Burren Way
We’re a stone’s throw from the start of the beautiful Burren Way walking trail. This 123km linear trail takes you through the karst Burren landscape, taking 7 days/6 nights to complete. The trail travels inland from Lahinch to Doolin and via the town of Lisdoonvarna on to Ballyvaughan to the north. It then crosses the heartland of the Burren through the villages of Carran, and Corofin on the eastern side of the Burren.
Dubbed ‘surfcity’, Nearby Lahinch is one of Ireland’s top surfing destinations – with a long stretch of flat sandy beach and some excellent reef breaks to the south. It’s perfect for beginners, intermediate and advanced surfers – and there are many surf schools on the beachfront offering lessons to all age groups. Equipment is available to hire, while many kids surf camps are run each day, over the summer holiday period. The nearby village of Fanore is also a popular surfing spot.
Lahinch Golf Club
Host Club of the 2019 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, this beautiful Club is ranked #65 on Golf Digest’s list of the world’s greatest golf courses. Dating back to 1892 it is described as ‘The St Andrew’s of Ireland.’
