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

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.

This is a wonderful place to go for a walk with the family. Fresh air, beautiful scenery everywhere and the relaxing sound of the waves. Very nice atmosphere! If you ever get a chance, visit this place!👌
