In typical Irish weather, all four seasons played out over the course of an hour — freezing rain, high winds and sunshine.

Lahinch is a very popular seaside resort and surfing destination now, with a history that dates back more than a thousand years.

The area has several ancient earthen forts as well as ruins of Medieval castles.

It wasn’t until the late 19th Century that the former fishing village became a preferred beach holiday destination.

Lahinch now also has a popular golf club, founded in 1892, numerous hotels and the Lahinch Seaworld and Leisure Centre with aquarium and 25-metre swimming pool.

No stranger to harsh seaside storms, the Lahinch waterfront has been pounded by high winds and waves and severely damaged more than once during its history — once in 1883 and again just last year!
