Taking a look long walk along the Salthill Promenade is a wonderful and truly relaxing way to spend a hour. Take in the fresh air, relaxed and safe atmosphere by strolling along by the seal and soak up the wonderful scenary

One of the nicest beaches in Ireland in my opinion, always kept clean, lovely walkway, dog friendly and plenty of cafes, restaurants and hotels available on the prom itself, fantastic views

a well used and safe area to view the beauty of Galway Bay. It is great for walking or bicycling. Families can get easy access to the beach.

Well if you do cycle I won’t stop ya it hasn’t stopped me either. Soak up Galway bay in the best way, sure it’d be rude not too. I’m actually walking as I am writing this I do it every week.

Nice morning walk from Galway city centre to Salthill. Promenade is nice with nice views, I'd assume that during the summer is even nicer with beaches full of people. Good recreational area as well as quite some dining options and bars.

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.
