Every time I pass through Salthill I am reminded how beautiful the promenade is, and what a facility we have on our doorstep, for those of us fortunate enough to live in the Galway area. My instinct is always to stop the car, get out and walk. ‘We should do this more often’ is invariably the reaction from family members. And so we should. A self catering stay at the Galway Bay Sea View Apartments in Salthill is now available for as little as €199 in total for a three night break for four people. With 34 large sized apartments, the venue offers an ideal break for families, couples and groups of friends.
Located across the road from the famous Salthill Promenade, the spacious apartments, each with their own balcony or roof top terrace, offer breathtaking sea views across Galway Bay as far as the Burren in Clare.
A wide selection of apartments are available from a one bedroom standard apartment to a three bedroom rooftop penthouse. Apartment kitchens are fully equipped, and the self catering option allows you to come and go as you please. Staying here, you can immerse yourself in Salthill village life, and experience it like a local. The apartments can be booked all year round, and a number of luxurious packages for both exclusive use and boutique stays are available.
The beach at Salthill is a favourite with people from all over the West of Ireland, and also boasts a large number of year round swimmers. A leap into the water from the Blackrock diving boards has been a right of passage for young Galwegians for many decades, or join the hundreds of walkers and joggers in taking a bracing trip along the famous promenade.
Facilities on your doorstep also include the Galway Atlantiquaria, Leisureland, amusement arcades, great restaurants, cafes and bars. The apartments also provide an ideal location for exploring the rugged beauty of Connemara.
Galway city within easy reach
One of the main attractions of staying in Salthill is, while enjoying your seaside break, you also have access to all that Galway city has to offer, a mere 20 minute walk away. Galway is a vibrant city all year round. From the Comedy Festival in October and the Christmas Market from late November, Galway is about to take up the mantle of European Capital of Culture for 2020. In addition to the packed calendar already in place, there are literally hundreds of events planned for the coming year throughout the city and county, and visitor numbers to the area are expected to increase significantly. Between now and the end of the year, your options include the Tulca Festival of Visual Arts, the Galway Cartoon Festival, the Junior Film Fleadh, The Irish International Angling Show, the Galway Science and Technology Festival and the wonderful Galway Christmas Market, which opens on November 15th. Galway Skates will test your ice skating skills from November 16th, or maybe Elf Town at the Galway racecourse or the Galway Food, Craft and Gift Fair would be a safer option. Connacht Rugby also play host to Leinster and Gloucester in the coming weeks.
A two night stay may not be enough.
