dont have cheap food selling nearby the beach, as soon as i came out of the Dart station, mostly expensive restaurant along the beach. if any1 looking for local food have to go in the town of Bray. But its still a must go place when visiting Dublin

Nice exercise and view at top of Bray head. Used to do this walk over 40 years ago. Great views. Although golf course there now. Some old ruins of a. Hutchinson worth a look.

I visit this beautiful piece of Ireland regularly. I love it as you can walk up to the cross on Bray Head, from the seafront, in under an hour. I recommend good footwear. When you arrive, after a little effort, you are presented with a wonderful panorama. You can see for miles around. It doesn't matter what the weather is,... More

Whether solo or in a group, this is a must see location. It's a beautiful location and relatively easy to reach - just wear good walking shoes and possibly a walking stick. It's worth the view.

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
