The Iconic Big Wheel at Salthill, Galway
It’s coming back! One of Salthill’s most IG friendly attractions makes a welcome return this month. The big wheel returns once again to dominate the Galway skyline this March. This is because Curry’s Fun Park is arriving to the Village Salthill. It’s the perfect place for that photo opportunity – day or night. This family friendly carnival celebrates all that is special about Salthill.
The fun, the frivolity, the craic.
It’s another string to Salthill’s bow. In light of this, it adds to what Salthill has to offer to the young and young at heart. If you are brave enough to embark on the big wheel, you will get a bird’s eye view of the famous promenade and the waves of the Wild Atlantic Way. Along the shore, you can find delectable eateries and bars to cater for every palate.
From Italian restaurants to fine dining, pub grub and street food to takeaways, Salthill has it all. There’s a feast of cafés, restaurants, bars and hotels to choose from. As a result, there are plenty of places to find the best food in town. From the spice of Samyo, to the hearty menu at The Galleon, there is so much for every taste bud.
The weather is only ever part of the story here. There is enough to keep you entertained rain or shine. Whether it’s a trip to the cinema, a dip in the famous Leisureland pool or an afternoon spent at Seapoint or the Aquarium, you will not be disappointed.
As St Patrick’s day celebrations get underway, expect lots of shamrock and shenanigans over the bank holiday weekend. Ultimately, the aim of this year’s parade is to create a carnival atmosphere throughout the city. And you can certainly find that in Salthill.
