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.

  • Incredible place to go, to walk and enjoy the sea. Perfect in sunny days when all you wanna do is play or lay down on the beach.
  • 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.
