IrelandWelcome to our page of information, attractions and places of interest around Bray.

The Republic of Ireland is bound to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the east is the Irish Sea which reconnects to the ocean via the southwest with St. George's Channel and the Celtic Sea. The Republic of Ireland has 26 counties, and five cities — Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, and Waterford. The west-coast of Ireland features cliffs, hills and low mountains. The centre of the country is flat with large areas of bogland. We hope you enjoy your stay and find your ideal accommodation from our list of Bray hotels.

Bray is a town in north County Wicklow, on the east coast of Ireland about 20 km south of Dublin. Bray is a busy urban centre, seaside town, a market town for the surrounding area and the location of some industry. Bray makes an ideal base for walkers, ramblers and strollers. Walkers can join the many locals who stroll the mile long promenade which stretches from the Harbour with its colony of mute swans to Bray Head (241m) at the southern end of the promenade from which a well worn track leads to the summit. Also very popular with walkers is the 7 km Cliff Walk along Bray Head to Greystones. The town has grown relatively slowly over a long period and retains much of its Georgian and Victorian architecture.
