  • From time to time visit this promenade with beaches. I want to say that pay attention to the tide/low tide. Sometimes the ocean so raging that you can only track to admire him, and sometimes in a rush, you can safely sit on the sand. People bathe all year round, there is a tower which bound the bravest. The most beautiful time is from morning to evening, types of change very quickly and never get bored. Around many restaurants, parking and a children's playground.

  • Second visit to Salt hill and will not be the last. Galway Bay and Saltill beaches are so natural and refreshing. Views fabulous 
  • Walk to watch them jump of the Black Rock tower or just go for that swim. You can enjoy the sea views of Clare and take the freshness in.
