Tip No. 1, “Kick the Wall” in Salthill
A favourite tradition in Galway for locals and visitors alike is “walking the prom” in Salthill. The prom is the seaside promenade that runs from the Claddagh near the city centre out to the diving boards at Blackrock in Salthill (approximately 3km). The local tradition is to ‘kick’ the wall at the end of the prom at Blackrock.
