You must walk this promenade. Friendly people, everyone help with information. The water is too cold for foreigners, only local can bath there.

We walked the promenade on a very windy day and it was fabulous. Listening to the sea is something I love to do. Very relaxing. Great for walker's and runners alike.

Beautiful walk and view of Galway Bay. There are people sailing, swimming (even in the cold blustery weather we had today here) which reminds me of home in Savannah,GA.

I have family in Galway so visit regularly. Have been doing since I was child. I love Ireland and I have seen many changes. Salthill is a lovely beach and it’s popular to walk the promenade and kick the wall at the end for luck....More

Wonderful stay at Salthill Promenade. If you want to be away from the hustle bustle of the Galway city, this is the place to be right across from the Galway Bay. Very friendly staff, overall a wonderful experience.

You should definitely visit Salthill promenade. You can walk among the see shore and enjoy the view. There are many runners, tourists and people with dogs. Nice for walks after school or on the way to the city.

Enjoyed our walk here to find a cool beach in Galway. Definitely worth checking out, close to several bars and restaurants in Salt Hill, and beautiful spots for pictures!

Go for a walk on the prom no matter what the weather, Invigorating. Views and people watching are marvellous. Have a dip if feeling fit and courageous. Lots of cafes and bars available.

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.
