This is a nice walk for those looking for a bit of fresh sea air. The views are nice enough but nothing to write home about, I took my camera but didn't take a shot. One good thing is that there is plenty of parking around the area and you can jump out and walk for as long you like. Don't forget to "Kick the Wall" at the Western End of the path. In March it was still rather cold and raining but I imagine in the summer this would be a lively area.

Despite all of the bad weather and damage done earlier this year, Salthill promenade is a wonderful place to take a walk weather it be a long or short one that you wish to undertake the prom offers both. The local council has to be congratulated on the speed of their clean-up and their continuing repair work.

You could walk through town and get to the coast where there is a fantastic paved walking trail. You can follow it as far as you want. Be warned-the pay toilets that are there are usually not working-keep walking and you will usually find at least one to use. It was a beautiful path to walk along and watch the sunsrt.

I've just got back from my second trip to Galway and again I had to go and Kick The Wall.
I love Salthill Promenade - when we visited on Tuesday it was really windy and the water was really high, hitting off the rocks. There we're so many people about and loving the promenade as much as we were which gave the whole place a great feeling, there was even a gent in the water swimming.

Will definitely walk it to Kick The Wall again next time I'm down. :)

Always busy, always a great view, perfect for getting exercise and fresh sea air.

Tradition is to kick the wall at the blackrock end once you get there.
