The postcard-worthy location is best admired with a stroll along the 2km seafront ‘Prom’ (promenade), a lively walkway crammed with bars, restaurants and hotels, as well as hosting a vibrant nightlife from its many casinos and nightclubs. One of a number of casinos and leisure centers that opened up in the 1970’s, the famous Leisureland complex is still a prime attraction, featuring a summer fairground, swimming pool, mini golf course and concert hall that has hosted acts like U2 and AC/DC over the years.
Once you tire of beach life, there’s plenty of alternatives, too - visit the Galway Atlantaquaria – Ireland’s National Aquarium, home to the world’s only White Skate on public display; enjoy a stroll through nearby Salthill Park or Quincentennial Park; or explore Galway’s myriad of iconic sights, like the immense Cliffs of Moher or the unique landscape of the Burren.
