Salthill promenade never sleeps. It is a hive of activity morning, noon and night. People of all ages use it and yet it is peaceful. A visit to Galway would be incomplete without a stroll along the promenade!

Very pretty area, but locals can be a bit less than enthusiastic about tourists. Beaches are nice but can get very busy in the summer months.

The prom in salthill is a hive of activity and always a wonderful place to stretch your legs. Even on wet days the prom has its own beauty but in the summer time it's packed as are most seaside resorts.

Salthill Prom is very nice for its landscape, the sea, Irish islands, the mouton's head causeway... Take a couple hours just to take a walk and admire the view and take a coffee in one of the numerous places facing the ocean!

Loved Salthill, great for walks on the beach and lots of places to eat. Bus into Galway city goes every 20 min which is great.

We drove along the Salthill Promenade, instead of walking, because the winds were ferocious that day, but it looked a beautiful place to go for a run or walk. In the summer it would be even better, with ice cream shops lining the beach and a big diving board into the sea for the more intrepid beachgoers. The views were... More
