This is an amazing little place to visit while in bray. The prices are very reasonable and it’s location is right beside the sea. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the menu is quite varied. I personally recommend the ham hock eggs Benedict.

We recently had breakfast here and would nearly give this place a 4 star. The food is decent and the coffee is really good, but we felt that for the price certain components of the breakfast weren't really that high. If you're passing by, then...More

Sorry. I have no allergies and never asked about gluten free food. I only hate garlic.

Tucked away in the middle of Bray Harbour, you'll have to look closely to find Dockyard No.8 but you will be more than rewarded once you do. This is a top class breakfast, brunch, lunch and bistro spot that boasts an ever changing and innovative menu. Expect things to go above and beyond the usual fare while never compromising on quality. This a quaint and intimate spot where you really feel as though you can have dialogue with the chefs and those serving you as well as take in the harbour beauty.
