A lovely long and interesting path to walk whether on sunny or not too sunny days. The bracing sea breeze and views are breathtaking. This would be somewhere that if staying nearby a walk along would be a must.

My husband and I walked this path last week not knowing what wonderful sights existed. It is a great way to view the bay and get in some exercise.

We started off with good intentions and the view is nice. Winds are whipping but if a cloud rolls in - you're getting wet. Keep your rain jacket handy as there is no place to get shelter while walking the promenade. Spectacular and beautiful views

The Promenade allows you to view this beautiful area of Galway, with views back over the city. Watch the locals going about their work and you may even see Séan Ó’Toole making his way to the famous Ó’Connor's Pub nearby... follow him for a Guinness...More

Lovely visit to salthill. It was so clean... littter free. Public toilets a credit to who ever maintains them. Well done. It would have been perfect but for the amount of dog poo on the promenade. Not nice.

A fantastic walk that offers many options for food. Lots of historically significant things to see and do. The red hop on/hop off bus stops along the promenade. Well worth a trip.

On a sunny day you can't be this for a destination. There's a long way and a shorter, straighter way to get here. Aquarium worth a visit. Enjoyed it.

There are amusement areas some by the sea but not on the prom, there was a little road train that took families around the seafront.
