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.

  • A nice place for a walk in a sunny day. Not the best beach in Ireland but plenty of nearby facilities. Close to shops, bars and restaurants and accessible by public transport.

  • My visit to the Prom was on a cold, wet & windy day but still managed to get out and walk for a while before the rain got too heavy. It was great to be able to see the islands from the shoreline. Even though the weather wasn't great, the people I met were nice & friendly and more than happy to stop & point you in the right direction or just give a suggestion on where to visit next. I hope to visit again on a better day when I have more time to investigate.
  • Beautiful area to walk around. Was there a few days ago, it was a sunny day. We also came across a lovely park with waterfalls
  • Lovely place on a fine day, often go out here with the family. Some nice cafes and pubs also.
  • Called in for Sunday lunch with 2 others after 15 minutes waiting for someone to take our order i asked one of the many staff to take our order. Within 5 minutes a bowl of chips arrived, which was ordered a side dish with a curry dish. And a pot tea of which was not ordered I informed the waitress that the tea was not for us. She told us that the rest of the food would be straight out. And brought the tea away. 2 mins. Later another waitress brought more tea. Still no dinner. 30 mins later 2 dinner's arrived. Not mine though. Maybe it's on the way I taught but 15 later no joy. So I asked I was told that the waitress never wrote down the order . She asked if I would now like to order lunch again . I didn't. I asked to see the manager . He said that there was a lot of new staff on . But no solution. I paid my bill and left. I will not be rushing back...
  • Amazing spot, you are so close to center of Galway and you can walk beside Ocean. Love this place.
