Irish Brighton

Though its glory days may have passed, the busy seaside resort of Bray offers plenty to enjoy. The country's film capital may no longer be up to par with its former title as the Irish Brighton, but Bray remains a sought-out tourist destination that's an easy trip from Dublin. Walk the city's promenade, sunbathe at the beach, or partake in local recreational activities, including the cliffside walk to the famous Greystones. The site also offers horseback riding and golfing. If you prefer urban life, spend your time shopping and checking out the city's bar scene. Use our Ireland tour planner to arrange your visit to Bray and other destinations in Ireland.
