Climbed this multiple times over the years and to this day it is still enjoyable. When the weather is good you can see for miles. This is ideal for picnics and is not too demanding. It is not accessible for disabled people in wheelchairs sadly.

Bray Head is a great place to see the sea, have lunch, shop, take the kids on carnival rides, dip your toes in the sea, walk and more. There are nice views but the only downside - finding parking is a bit of a nightmare.

It can take a while wandering through the woods and then up the steep paths but is but is very much doable f_ I even saw a guy with crutches up there. The view is amazing and the paths are numerous

This is not a difficult climb and if you take your time the way down is OK also. The views (if you get a reasonably clear day) are out of this world . Howth,Ireland's Eye,Dalkey Island and even the Welsh hills on a very clear day are just some of the locations to spot. Looking south Wicklow Head etc, etc.... More

I try to avoid this little summit when I'm rambling in the area, simply because of the numbers of people and the litter they leave. It should be a beautiful spot - it's in a perfect location but the erosion on the approaches make for a slippery descent.

Although the weather was cool the day we were there, you can easily imagine that on a sunny day, Bray's seaside would be swarming with people. It is very beautiful, spacious and clean. There are excellent views of the sea, and lots of paths to stroll on. It was easy to access this place. We took the DART from central... More

The climb to the 170 metre summit of Bray Head is uneven in parts, but it's certainly worth the effort, where the views to be experienced at the top are quite breathtaking. Robust footwear is recommended, particularly with any lying moisture.

Those who are keen on physical exertions will appreciate this, others who enjoy a nice stroll will enjoy it, the kids may find it a bit boring as there are no electronic distractions along the way! the views of & from Bray head a breath-taking, as is climbing to the top if you are a little out of practice, but...
