Easter Delights in Salthill
Easter is set to delight in Salthill as April adventures draw the seaside resort ever closer to the summer season. With the promise of good weather on the horizon, this is the ideal location to while away the longer evenings on the world-famous promenade overlooking the shores of Galway Bay.
And with our sprinkling of April showers, there is so much on offer indoors to keep you entertained. With a host of delicious eateries, from cafes, bars, restaurants and hotels to the leisurely pursuits offered by Seapoint, Leisureland and the Galway Atlantaquaria, Salthill is the perfect setting for all the family.
Easter is a time for reflection, and with it, a chance to spend quality time with those we love. As a collection of over 60 local businesses, the Village Salthill is ready to welcome you, your friends and family to a feast of food and activities in stunning surrounds.
Purple Flag Award
For the first time, Salthill has been awarded the prestigious ‘Purple Flag’ with a presentation at a ceremony in Liverpool. The Purple Flag is an international accreditation programme that aims to reward those who create safe and thriving locations after dark.
As a family friendly destination, this recognition for night-time safety is testament to the sense of community in Salthill.
