A lovely walled garden on the promenade in Salthill right beside The Galway Bay Hotel. Really quite and peaceful, I happened upon the garden by accident and found it quite moving as the garden itself replicates the circle of life..

Date of experience: December 2017

Hi Charlotte,
Thank you for reviewing the Circle of Life Garden on TripAdvisor and we very much like you referring to it being a "lovely spiritual gem". When creating it we planned that it would reflect the various stages of the journey of life and it would be a place to remember and celebrate the generosity and nobility of human nature. It is very rewarding when people like yourself find peace and quite and time for reflection while visiting the garden.
Thank you again and warm regards,
Martina & Denis

We were staying at the hotel right next door to this beautiful garden. Commemorates birth, organ donation and life itself. Worth taking half an hour to wander through the garden.

Thank you for recommending the Circle of Life Garden to other visitors. Although located on the busy Salthill Promenade it is, as you said, a very tranquil garden which commemorates those who have given the gift of life to others through organ donation, and aims to remember and celebrate the nobility of human nature.
Hopefully, you'll get a chance to visit again.
With warm regards,
Martina & Denis

You can access this place from the gardens of the Galway Bay Hotel which is next door. Its right across the road from the promenade. I would recommend everyone to walk around the place at least once. Its a place of peace, solitude and tranquility.

Hi, thank you for reviewing the Circle of Life garden and for recommending it to other visitors. Although referred to quite often as a "hidden gem", being located behind a wall just off the promenade, it is, as you said, accessible from both the Galway Bay Hotel and Salthill Hill and from the main road on the prom.
We very much like you referring to the garden as a "place of peace, solitude and tranquility.
Many thanks again,
Martina & Denis
