Introducing Bray

You’d be hard pressed to find traces of the glorious seaside resort once described as the ‘Irish Brighton’, but the sleepy dormitory town of Bray is a fairly pleasant spot, and you could do far worse than spend an afternoon strolling up and down the promenade or messing about on the beach. Its proximity to Dublin on the DART line means that there’s no reason to overnight here, but you’ll have to resist the late-night temptations of one of our favourite bars in Ireland. There’s also a great scenic walk from here south to Greystones.
