Salthill, once a small seaside resort 3 km west of Galway City, is now an important suburb of this expanding city. Salthill seems to have grown as a result and, today, it is the premier resort in Ireland. While it may have lost some of its simple, rural charms, it has gained a wealth of amenities in the process. The giant Leisureland complex, with its host of children's entertainments, including an indoor heated swimming pool, proves very popular, especially when the weather acts the spoilsport, as it will do at times here in the west. The golden half-mile of casinos, pubs and restaurants also play their part by day and discos and musical pubs rule the roost at night.

Galway Bay and its lapping waters will always be the main attraction, however, and the visitor has a host of safe, sandy beaches from which to choose. Swimming, sunbathing, sail-boarding, snorkelling, sea angling and high board diving, can be enjoyed here. For the less energetic, a stroll along Ireland's longest promenade, is strongly recommended, for the fresh Galway Bay sea air is a tonic in itself. And, while you are at it, ramble through nearby Salthill Park and Quincentennial Park to view the flowers and shrubs. Alternatively, one can try a spot of tennis or golf at the nearby clubs. Salthill is that kind of place.

The Salthill Air Show is a free air show held every summer along the Salthill Promenade on the shores of the famous Galway Bay, Ireland. The Salthill Air Show is one of the few FREE Air Show's in Europe. Use the links above to navigate this site, where you will find not only details of the aircraft and displays scheduled to attend the air show but also information on, among other things, how to get here, where to stay, and traffic information.
The 2007 Salthill Air Show will be held on Sunday 24th June. Start time is 3pm.
