The Promenade at Salthill is approx. 2 miles long (3kms), and it overlooks Galway Bay. A nifty 50′s diving platform is open year round; however, swimming is not recommended in this part of the bay. It is an ideal place for jogging, rollerblading strolling or picnics. On clear days, the hills of Co Clare are visible across the bay, and benches are provided along the seafront.
The promenade is in walking distance of Sleepzone Hostel Galway City. Cottage Bar, Lower Salthill is host to Celtic Tales – traditional Irish storytelling on a Thursday night.
