Bray is a seaside town located in County Wicklow, known as ‘the Garden of Ireland’. The landscape of rolling hills, fertile valleys, rivers and lakes is familiar from the television series ‘Ballykissangel‘.
The town has a magnificent promenade; take the historic walk which starts in the harbour area near Martello Terrace, the former home of Irish novelist and poet James Joyce. It is a mile in length with views of Bray Head and Sugarloaf Mountains.
Just to the north lies the cosmopolitan city of Dublin, which is the spiritual home of Jameson, Guinness and consequently, the renowned ‘craic’ (good times). Bray is in such close proximity to Dublin that it is practically a suburb and easy access to the city is provided via the DART rapid transit system.
Our base is the splendid Royal Hotel and Leisure Centre, which is situated in the heart of Bray and just a short walk from the seafront.
offers all the amenities one would expect from a bustling holiday resort, including numerous shops, restaurants, pubs and a modern leisure centre.
Bray’s mile-long sand and shingle beach is dominated by Bray Head and its summit cross, with the Sugar Loaf and the Wicklow mountains in the background.
