If the next word you think of after "beach" is "SWIM!" think again. There is rarely a nice day for a swim and sunbath in Ireland, but the view of the bay is lovely for a picture and a search for interesting sea creatures and shells.

Nice for a walk, well used (you'll find others enjoying the scenery too), but clean and serene. I haven't seen beaches this enjoyable, clean, and easily accessible in a long time. Take some time to linger here-- it is worth the time spent

Would liked to have seen more of Salthill, but the weather didn't cooperate!! We did get out and look at the beach, nice area, probably very beautiful in the summer time.

When the weather's is warm this place turns into a metropolis for people watching. Get a 99 and head down onto the rocks or the sand and take in the hilarious antics that will unfold before your eyes!

I don't think there are may days when you could just be strolling but if so, a great spot to do so, we stayed inside it was so cold and windy
