A great spot in Galway with lots of lovely places to go eat or just for a walk on the beach. During the summer there is a fun fair on the promenade which adds to a great day out.

Beautiful views everywhere you look as you stroll along the prom, and people are friendly as you pass. Note that people walk there dogs here and don't always clean up, so worth keeping an eye on the ground as you walk.

'Walked the Prom' as usual this week and as always a very pleasant experience. Over 2.5k and then an additional 1.5k down between the sea and the golf course.

There are amusement areas some by the sea but not on the prom, there was a little road train that took families around the seafront.
