Great spot to learn at if you don't like battling with the crowds in lahinch as it usually picks up the same size swell as lahinch beach.

Atmosphere

Fanore tends to get overrun with beginners on sunny summer afternoons as well as bathers so if you're an experienced surfer stay well away or you'll only be frustrated and disappointed. Watch out for the two sections of rock above mid tide

General

Have had some excellent sessions here as the sun is rising and the wind has turned offshore in the early morning with beautiful four foot sets rolling in and only one person out.

Improved services in Fanore - Shower facilities, walking and hiking maps and new facilities and booking centre in Fanore - more than exists at present in Lahinich... well worth a visit. check out Vasco for all day food

sad day for Fanore - Second death this year in fanore due to the bad curents :-(
Beginers do the most stupid things.

Fanore sucks - Why even bother going to fanore when there's doolin and Lahinch only up the road. Fanore's full of swimers and anglers and the wave's totaly useless. Head to doolin or lahinch for nice surf and good pubs folks.
