We went on a beautiful sunny warm day. We rented bikes and rode along the promenade as much as we could. Parts of it bikes aren't allowed. It was packed with people enjoying the beautiful weather.

Uninterrupted by motorized vehicles, the promenade from Galway to Salt Hill is a must walk on a sunny day, especially!! Note: for wheelchairs, there really are no accessible restrooms between the two communities.

This is a lovely walk to the promenade. The day we went was pretty warm and we enjoyed walking in the sun feeling the cool breeze from the water. We even saw a few dogs splashing about.

We walked for quite a long way, enjoying the sights and the smells of the ocean. It seemed such a lovely seaside village. People were friendly and parking was easy. Many restaurants of all different countries represented - so we were spoilt for choice.

If you want to escape from the bustle of central Galway (gets very busy with tourist) then you can venture out to here. Its approximately a 10 min walk from the centre.

Walked from downtown area. Nice coastline. Some restaurants and basic shopping. Made this part of a multi-stop walking tour.

It was the ideal setting for a walk on the prom. The weather was conducive to this and the surrounding views of the Burn and the Clare mountains were spectacular. Thoroughly enjoyed today.

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.
