Historic Walking Area · Tourist Spot
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.

  • Great place to go for a walk and a run. Blackrock at the end of the prom great place to view Galway Bay and go for a swim. Salthill has coffee shops, bars and restaurants to sate your appetite.
  • Came with a friend for an early morning swim (8am) and place was just a hive of activity. Great buzz around the place. Would recommend it as one of those things to do if ever in Galway. Great way to start the day😁
