Pocket Guide: Dublin Bray Head Hotels

For lovers of an enervating stroll and sublime coastal views Bray Head in County Wicklow offers the perfect spot. You can find a wide range of hotels around this very popular hill walk ranging from five star luxury hotels to family-friendly hotels at a more modest price that promise a warm welcome and plenty of comfort.

Visiting Bray

Bray is situated just 15 miles down the coast from Dublin in the beautiful County Wicklow which more than lives up to its name as ‘the garden of Ireland’. To reach the hotels dotted around this area it takes just a short drive from Dublin Airport but here you will find more relaxed pursuits than those offered by the vibrant capital. One of these is the walk along Bray Head, and another is the top-class golf course at Bray Golf Club that can be viewed whilst on your stroll.

Bray Head

Bray Head is known in Irish as Ceann Bhré and it is the 241 metre hill and headland that can be found between the towns of Bray and Greystones in northern County Wicklow.

It forms part of the Wicklow Mountains but don’t be put off by the name: this is a gentle hill walk not an exercise in mountaineering.

It is the views that entice the many walkers who enjoy the stroll along the headlands, although there are a few points that will pique your interest as you enjoy the ramble. At the top of the head there is a concrete cross which many locals climb to on a Good Friday procession every year.

The most direct way to reach the cross is to use the footpath that leads away from the free car park just south of Bray Esplanade. The path ascends along a rough path taking you through woodland to the summit.

There is also a more gradual route, although this path should not prove taxing to most, that is available from the Southern Cross, which is by Bray Golf Club.

The Dublin to Wicklow railway line runs along the coast here too and was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. It is often referred to as Brunel's Folly, thanks to the high costs associated with maintaining a cliff-face line.

At the base of your walk you can enjoy the Victorian seaside town of Bray with its sea life aquarium and inviting esplanade.

On your walk you will pass the small ruins of a 12th century church as well as the carriage track used by the local earl, the remains of a cable car that once graced the hillside and more wonderful views of the coastline than you could ever wish for.

Hotels for Bray Head
