Tom & Tess - Sir Salthill
Beautiful work by a local artist.
1. BLACKROCK DIVING TOWER
Blackrock Diving Tower is an iconic structure on the Salthill promenade. It was built in 1942.
2. MUTTON ISLAND LIGHTHOUSE
Mutton Island is a small island located off the coast of Salthill and is connected to the mainland by a causeway.
It was once one of the final landmarks of the city seen by emigrants leaving on the ‘coffin ships’ bound for the United States in the Great Famine.
There is a fantastic panoramic view of the city and Salthill from the causeway.
3. KICK THE WALL
At the Blackrock end of the Salthill promenade, locals and tourists have a tradition of kicking the wall before turning back. Does it bring good fortune, is it a habit or a superstition… who knows?
