SALTHILL, COUNTY GALWAY
Situated just minutes from the Galway City Centre, Salthill is a traditional seaside resort offering facilities to please young and old. Salthill's famous prom is the perfect place to watch the sun go down on Galway Bay.
Salthill is nestled within the northern inner shore of Galway Bay. The Aran Islands are visible to the right and Galway City 'The City of the Tribes’ to the left. Directly across Galway Bay is the Burren (County Clare) and to the west are the bogs and mountains of Connemara. On a clear day you feel as though you could reach out across the bay and touch the Clare hills though there are also many days when you can’t see them at all.
