    During our stay in Bray we visited also Sealife. Basically it is through relatively quickly, which is a shame. In itself, it was quite interesting and informative. The staff was also very friendly. However, not all the animals looked really happy about its limited Habitat. Conclusion: There are very interesting animals, why is worth a visit. Because of the small tour, there are only 4 points.
