Parking facilities at Salthill Prom to reopen on April 26

Galway Daily news Storm Debi - Galway City Council closing roads and car parks for Status Red warning

Car parks and parking along the Salthill Promenade and Silverstrand in Galway City will reopen on April 26.

Galway City Council has decided to reopening parking facilities in Salthill later this month following consultation with An Garda Síochána.

The decision has also been scheduled to match government guidelines for the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, which will see more outdoor attractions and sports facilities allowed to reopen on April 26.

Car parks and parking along the Prom, at Blackrock Diving Tower, and Silverstrand were closed in January at the request of the Gardaí.

This was due to difficulties with maintaining social distancing with large numbers of people in the area.

Social Distancing signage in all areas will be maintained the city council has said.
