Wonderful wild and free walking/jogging experience by the sea, near a vibrant city, restaurants, bars etc. If the tide is in, you can enjoy watching those brave enough to jump from the diving boards at Blackrock whilst on your walk (even in cold winter months)!

It is such a shame the large number of irresponsible dog owners who let their pet poop anywhere with no pick-up bag. If you go for a family walk, you are guaranteed at least one will come home with dog poo on their shoe (or push-chair if you kids are at that stage). OK … so I don't challenge the dog owners, I just don't need confrontation on a weekend walk. I have friends who stand up and asks the dog owners to clean up - usually they get indifference ("not my dog, not on a lead") or else abuse. I am a dog lover and we have our own dogs but I just don't like walking on the prom because there's nothing worse than a load of you know what on you shoe.

So I don't go to this lovely resource with family, friends or relatives any more.

The Prom is always a treat and the best place to banish that hangover from a night out in Galway!! Very friendly atmosphere on The Prom.. A nice mix of locals and tourists! Lovely views!

Walled the prom 51 years ago, kicking the wall at the end like a real Galwegian. Great exercise and great outdoor adventure. Never know who you will meet. Do it every year i come

This is a nice walk for those looking for a bit of fresh sea air. The views are nice enough but nothing to write home about, I took my camera but didn't take a shot. One good thing is that there is plenty of parking around the area and you can jump out and walk for as long you like. Don't forget to "Kick the Wall" at the Western End of the path. In March it was still rather cold and raining but I imagine in the summer this would be a lively area.

Despite all of the bad weather and damage done earlier this year, Salthill promenade is a wonderful place to take a walk weather it be a long or short one that you wish to undertake the prom offers both. The local council has to be congratulated on the speed of their clean-up and their continuing repair work.
