  • Is a very beautiful area, especially on a sunny day that doesn't happen often. Not to be missed!

  • Like most other seaside promenades attracted lots of people. There are many cars, people and lots of life-but not so much tranquillity. However, there is also a OK Beach area-but it was too cool to test them in March:)

  • Out of Galway, a beautiful walk. Bordered by hotels. In the direction of the coast and Connemara.
