  • always a pleasure to walk around Salthill - there's a buzz there like no place else, with lovely places for a coffee, Amazed to see swimmers (without wet suits) at the Diving Boards - hardy souls 
  • You have it all in one as so much to offer, the views, the stay in the fabulous choice of accommodation in Salthill. The seaview onto the Co Clare and onto the Aran Islands. 
  • Really lovely beaches along the Salthill promenade, so clean and great place for a family day out anytime
