My favourite place on earth. The walk on the prom is unique to Galwegians, but visitors have come to love the walk. Regardless of the weather (the windier the better) the prom is a must for all coming to Galway

Last week we parked up on the far end of the prom and walked all the way into the City Centre and I must say that in spite of the windy weather it was beautiful and refreshing.

I have spent quite a bit of time here and I am never disappointed. I walked the promenade in both good and bad weather but it doesn't matter the weather because it is such a great spot.

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.
