 Bray Head and the Cross

The Cross stands on a rocky outcrop half way up Bray Head. The steep slopes of this headland rise majestically above the beach and the Promenade. On the way to the Cross, we follow a path meandering up through the woods, in an area steeped in history. We enjoy a break at the Cross to admire the stunning panorama over the sea, the coast and the Wicklow Mountains.

The Cliff Walks  

Carved out of the steep slopes of Bray Head, the Cliff Walks winds its way through a wild landscape dotted with colourful flowers in summer. Along the trail, we enjoy the stunning views over the railway and the rugged coastline. The silence is only broken by the waves crushing on the shore, the song of the birds nesting in the cliffs and the occasional train passing by. With a bit of luck, we may spot dolphins and seals near the shore.

The Railway Line 

Connecting the two seaside towns of Bray and Greystones, the railway line is one of the most scenic railway routes in Ireland. It was built in the middle of the 19th century along the slopes of Bray Head.  Several tunnels had to be blasted through the cliffs and bridges had to be built  built for spanning deep ravines. As the Cliff Walk follows the same route, we can enjoy the amazing views over the sea and the coast.
