Bray Head, Bray

(4.7/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Stretch your legs and take in panoramic views from the peak of Bray Head. This 241 m (791 ft) hill and headland is part of the Wicklow Mountains and a popular hiking spot. The highest point is marked with a concrete cross, erected here in 1950. You can reach the cross via a footpath, formed by rainwater, which begins at the parking lot. You'll be rewarded after the steep climb with far-reaching views. Locals allege you can see all the way to the mountains in Wales, on especially clear days. Bring snacks and water with you, as there are no facilities on the hill. Be aware that the path can be slippery; walking shoes are recommended.

  • Tour almost obliged to see the views from above. It is a route of little more than half an hour, fairly easy, and that is worth.

  • A small town in Coast very nice and charming. The train ride was very entertaining. The beach promenade is precious to make good pictures. There are many restaurants cafes and bars and varied.
