Great beaches but lack of parking when the sun shines, Traffic is a problem on weekend days. The beaches are well served by local shops and hotels

We walked along the beach and up to the pier area that leads to the lighthouse. We weren't able to get near the lighthouse because about halfway down the pier there was a gate there that blocked it. However it was worth the walk in the cold and wind because it rained slightly and there was this amazing rainbow that showed up and we had never seen such a full rainbow with so many colors! It was a nice experience :)

In all but the very worst of weather, the beach along Salthill is a must-do for all visitors. Forget the car - just walk or sit. Bird-watching and people-watching are equally entertaining and you can even try some beach-fishing - although not of course if there are people in the water.

We found it a bit too crowded, teenagers on skateboards/rollerblades zooming around the footpaths, people sitting on every bench along the beach area, and this was in spring would hate to think what summer is like there. There was an odd smell at the beach area couldn't make out what it was (sewage type smell but could see nothing) decided after 20 minutes we had enough and left. This was not for us.

Spent an afternoon enjoying the sunshine by the Famine Ship Memorial, such a great place to enjoy a picnic and relax! :)
