Lovely walk, very easy to access from Bray DART station - just follow the signs for the cliff walk and detour up the hill towards the cross. Ask any local you meet, they'll be happy to instruct you. Enjoy a bag of chips or a cone on the seafront when you return...you deserve it!

Such a nice place to go for a walk, climb or stroll. Very pet friendly. Lovely pebble beach, great for scimming stones!! Highly recommend visiting for a walk, the seafront town I suppose is very seasonal and canseem a little run down in January.

Such a pleasant place to take a stroll, especially, as it was for us, on a nice Sunday afternoon. Nice beach though a bit stony for sunbathing! The Head itself offers stunning views over Bray, the bay and south Dublin. Not an especially difficult climb on the lower part but a fair hike right to the very top. Loads of... More

Myself and my partner climbed thus on a mild morning for 18th January. Being pregnant thought I would struggle but scaled it in 35 mins!! A lot of fire damage from the summer but amazing views of the bay and surrounds Great way to shake off the cobwebs for new year

It was a nice trip from Dublin to Bray, the bray dart station is at a walking distance away form Bray Head. The climb is heavy for those that are not used to, but the view is totally worth it.

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.
