Public Transport Information

Two bus routes serve this area.

Bus Éireann's Route 401 from the city (red line on the map) which approaches Lower Salthill from the Crescent: Buses go along Lower Salthill to the sea-front, then do a circuit around the Upper Salthill area and return to the city via Lower Salthill.

City Direct's Route 410 travels past the university, and then approaches Lower Salthill from St Mary's Road, then travels along lower Salthill, via the seafront and then on to Knocknacarra Road.

To "walk the prom", get the bus to Salthill church, and walk along the coastline to Blackrock diving board (which is shown on the Upper Salthill neighbourhood map).  Don't forget to "kick the wall" at the end.
