The famous Cliffs of Moher stand facing the Atlantic ocean a short distance north. They are very impressive at over seven hundred feet high, and give visitors a high vantage point over Galway Bay and the Aran Islands. O'Brien's Tower stands guard at one end and Moher Castle is situated at the southern end. The cliffs are home to numerous seabirds, including gannets, razorbills guillemots and puffins, and the area is a birdwatcher's paradise.

Spanish Point, a short distance down the coast from Lahinch, is one of the oldest golf courses in Ireland. It is a 9-hole course overlooking the atlantic ocean. If you have a low handicap and your swing is in, try the Greg Norman designed Links Course in Doonbeg, further down the coast.
