A favourite pastime for Galweigans and visitors alike is walking along the Salthill Prom, the seaside promenade running from the edge of the city along Salthill overlooking Galway Bay with bars, restaurants and hotels. Local tradition dictates ‘kicking the wall’ across from the diving boards a 30-45 minute stroll from town before turning around. Kicking the wall is a tradition from the 1930’s signalling that you have completed the walk.
