Fancy a break in the coastal seaside resort of Salthill? This traditional holiday spot overlooking Galway Bay is only 3km west of Galway city so you’ll not be far from the shops, pubs and clubs. If you want easy access to beaches and savour the vibrant and energetic atmosphere of the “City of the Tribes” this is the place to stay.
This well established holiday destination offers the best of both worlds and is probably best known for its 2 mile long promenade overlooking Galway Bay. You can enjoy a variety of watersports, fishing or take a leisurely stroll along the promenade. And along the “Golden Half Mile” you’ll find a selection of pubs and restaurants, and of course if you are feeling lucky, have a flutter in one of the casinos. Just imagine tucking into a large bowl of steaming hot seafood chowder after all that fresh air!
A popular attraction for all the family is Leisureland, a modern leisure centre and theme park right on the promenade. Features include a 25-metre 6-lane competitive deck level pool, a warm up pool as well as a kiddies leisure pool. It also has a health and fitness suite with a gym, sauna, steam room and a massage treatment centre. During the summer months the complex also has a large amusement park on the seafront site.
