If you are in the Salthill area then a stroll on the promenade is a must. Even on winter the view is breathtaking.

We walked this from our hotel in Galway. Even at this time of year it was a busy walkway...lots of people walking dogs, running, digging for clams, even the locals taking their daily swims...I'm sure it's more amazing in the summer

Ardulaun Hotel is a welcoming homely hotel where you will get a peaceful nights sleep as the hotel is in an avenue, so it’s away from the sound of passing traffic. The staff are friendly and helpful.

We love Salthill, the day we visited was a beautiful, autumnal day with gorgeous sunshine. We then went into Killorans pub, we always visit here when in Salthill. Great atmosphere and managers.

A great place for any easy walk in decent weather. The beach is quite beautiful and the views are good.

Lovely beach, amazing in summer time when the weather is nice and warm. Few stores around and free parking. Great for cycling, skating or having a nice long walk with your partner or friends. Gets very cold in the evenings and nights.

There are amusement areas some by the sea but not on the prom, there was a little road train that took families around the seafront.
