Salthill Promenade, Galway

4.4
#1 of 15 in Historic Sites in Galway
Lined by bars, restaurants, and hotels, Salthill Promenade stretches along Galway Bay. The "Prom," as the locals call it, is the longest seaside promenade in the country, attracting both casual strollers and long-distance joggers. You can reach the promenade from any part of the city in about five minutes by simply heading toward the water. As you walk or run along this sign-posted path, remember the local tradition that claims kicking the prom wall unfailingly brings good luck. Time your stroll or jog for late afternoon when the promenade becomes a prime spot for watching the sunset.

  • If you have the chance to spend in low tide when there is sunlight, as was the case for me, reflections are magical

  • If you arrive in Galway, you can't give up walk along Salthill: at the very end of the Galway City Centre we walks after the port, then coming to Salthill, its expanse between ocean and green. Not to be missed.

  • The sea on one side, a very wide walk Lane, the road, has large circulation, on the other side, and buildings. Very convenient for the people of galway who come marcger, run or do the bike. Otherwise, there are so many extraordinary places by the sea in Ireland that salthill has my taste nothing fancy

Where to stay in Galway

Stay at the center of Ireland's "Most Irish City," Galway City, by booking a hotel or hostel near Eyre Square, from which all city sights are walkable. If you prefer accommodation with more character, stay at a charming guesthouse or bed and breakfast just outside of the center, or look for lodging in the city's Latin Quarter, a bohemian neighborhood lined with cafes, galleries, and pubs. If you want to explore Galway County, book accommodations in the city, since it's a tourism and transportation hub on the West Coast. If you prefer the quiet countryside, seek out small, family-owned guesthouses on the Aran Islands or a cottage on the Connemara Peninsula.
