We've been to Bray many times but our first time to climb Bray Head. It was a great day the kids loved the struggle of making it to the top. It starts out easy enough but needing to always watch where your feet are landing., As you come to the top it gets a bit tricker. The view from the... More

Nice area to calm down, relax and take a walk along the sea side. There are some cafes and restaurants too.

This is a must if you are in Bray. It's steps to start with, then a scramble up after that. Well worth the effort. Great view from the cross. All ages do it. Probably best not to wear the high heels.

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
