Going to Salthill, you are not likely to be affected by road closures as long as you dont go through town - the biggest issue you will have to contend with is the traffic.

It was fine up to yesterday, but with the arrival of the boats its likely to get busier. Yesterday, it took me over an hour to get home from work, a journey that usually takes 20-25 minutes. Once you get as far as the Quincentenial bridge, you should be fine traffic wise from there.

thanks for the advice folks...actually worked out pretty well, got around Galway in around 30 minutes, followed the yellow AA signs for the funfair on the prom and took us right onto the prom, just beside the Salthill hotel where we were staying...the weather was kind to us too...got a couple of very pleasant days to take in all the activity of the yacht race.
