When you get to Bray park along the water (bring coins). From there you can walk the pier and get up to Bray Head. It's about a 30 minute hike, first along the pier, then a paved road, some steps and further a dirt trail. Depending on the season sneakers or hiking boots may be recommended as it can get a bit wet or muddy up there. Bring a hat and a coat, it could get windy or chilly on the top. Everyone can make this hike and it is worth the view.

Bray Head has it all.
However as a tourist attraction the cliff walk is the most popular attraction.
This is reviewed elsewhere.
The cliff walk is about 7km and links to towns of Bray and Greystones.

Once upon a time there was a ski-lift to bring passengers up to the top but regretfully it no longer operates.

Such an amazing place for the best views of the sea. It’s a bit of a walk up to it, but it is not very strenuous. Spring and summer is the best time to go, but is great in any good weather.

‘90 mins round trip from car park’, she said. 15 mins later I’m at the summit - mind you my heart is jumping out of my chest. views are amazing from the top - so worth the effort. As with all strenuous walks wear proper gear and layer up!

In the 30+ years I have been going to the seafront in Bray, it has been ever changing as things do. The Pramanad with its wide cement walking area for children and pets makes a perfect Sunday stroll. Have lunch and/or enjoy a pinic on the green, grab an ice cream with the kids. These are memories for generations to remember, if you are adventurous take the hike up Bray head and look down at the seafront as a whole. The view and pictures are magnificent! Enjoy!!
