It's very quiet. There's no issue at all anymore with people walking home from Salthil at night. I haven't seen any issues with any sort of unsociable behaviour. There's a good neighbourhood alert system too with texts if anything unusual does happen. It's beginning to have a lovely community sort of feel.
It's mostly older settled people but there are families with young kids and I do spot the kids out playing and they look like they're having a great time together. At Halloween little kids from different families got together went around to doors with a parent and in the summer there were nice activities for small children supervised by parents too. There was sleepover in the park with tents and a camp fire and I think a little garden area where the children grow things in a park. Before Christmas there's a neighbourhood dinner in a local hotel and Santa comes. I think it looks really lovely for children.

Hi. We’ve been looking at a house for sale in Highfield Park. I’m not really familiar with the area but it seems very family friendly whenever I’ve been to see the house. Does anybody have experience living there? What’s it like? Are there many kids/young families? We have 4 kids primary school age and younger. Thanks!

Just go for it if the house itself makes sense.
The area has everything going for it. I struggle to think of one disadvantage. The only one may be the house itself. Obviously I've no idea what it's like but to be honest, I'd take a slight wreck there rather than a pristine palace in pretty much everywhere else in Galway.
Good luck and welcome to Galway!
