Bray Head and the Cross
The steep slopes of Bray Head rise majestically above Bray beach and the Promenade. Half-way up, there is a rocky outcrop where the local people built a cross about seventy years ago. As the path meanders up through the woods, we can enjoy stunning views over the beach and the coast. But it is only on reaching the Cross that we discover the panoramic views stretching from the mountains to the coast.
Carved out of the steep slopes of Bray Head, the Cliff Walk winds its way through a wild landscape. As we walk along the trail, we have time to enjoy the stunning views over the railway and the rugged coastline. There, we can enjoy nature’s silence, only broken by the song of the birds nesting in the cliffs and the occasional train passing by. Sometimes, we can also hear the waves crushing on the shore.
The railway line connects the two seaside towns of Bray and Greystones and it is considered one of the most scenic railway routes in Ireland. The railway line was built in the middle of the 19th century along the slopes of Bray Head. The workers had to blast several tunnels through the cliffs and build elegant bridges over deep ravines. Above the railway line, the workers built also a trail which is known as the Cliff Walk. Along the way, we can enjoy amazing views over the sea and the rugged coast.
