This walk from the City out by 'The Salthill Prom' is very popular with locals and tourists alike. There's a wall at the end and the tradition is to kick it to signify the half way (or completion) point of your journey. Spectacular view of 'The Burren' and Galway Bay. Recommended, particularly at sunset.

Winter or summer, a visit to Salthill would be incomplete without a stroll or indeed a power walk along this famous promenade! With the backdrop of the Aran Islands and the chance to see 'the sun go down on Galway Bay', the promenade itself is flat, with a perfect walking surface. There are several pleasant green areas and lots of... More

Not much more than this. It was a sweet area of Galway. Signs pointed me in the direction so I headed that way. Not disappointed at all, and neither overly impressed either. Maybe I missed something. Again, it was a nice walk, although that's about all I experienced.

A beautiful walk along the sea and a very people place. Just watch your steps. People fail to pick up after the dogs. Being Fall, it was cooler so the beach was not busy. yet, there were many people taking strolls, cycling and just enjoying the outdoors. A good place to watch the sunset and the ambience. I never could... More

Some of life's best things are actually free. One of these is the Salthill Prom in Galway which has been extended and improved over the years and will be further extended out as far as Barna eventually. The regular users, the locals usually walk from Grattan Road, nearer to the city, to kick the wall about 4 km away and... More

A truly beautiful and picturesque location. Tranquil at the best of times but buzzing with a great atmosphere in peak season. Irish beauty at its best.
