The Prom as the locals say, is a picturesque walk along the shores of Galway people, frequented by walkers and runners. It can be a bit windy so a headband or hood is recommended for hair management

I remember when the promenade was fairly new. They have expanded it and added some extra walking paths. I love going for a daily walk for several miles past the Aquarium up past the golf club.

The sun was shining and the weather was warm in May...Strolled along with the sun-glint on the water, rocks and shells nearby. Entered the beach down a ramp and just stayed there for a while, beachcombing and writing. Loved it.

Walked along on a pretty evening. Seems popular with both tourists and locals out for exercise or an after-dinner stroll.

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.
