Loose stone trail up with nice views from the top. A good leg opener for any trail runners going on to tackle Tountinna from the Graves of the Leinstermen side. Always freezing here in winter!

an excellent opportunity to test your 10km running times. start from the square in clifden, run to the car park at the top of the sky road and back down again, a tough but very enjoyable 10km challenge with breath taking views.

such an amazing trail to do, I would recommend to do the opposite going first to Greystones using public transport and then going to Bray...

1) Don't be put off by the distance, there are many paths in the park and you could do 1km or 20km without much doubling back. We walked through the beech grove to the loop around Bonaveen point which was about 7km.

2) This is a perfect opportunity to stretch your legs on the road from Dublin to Galway. I highly recommend it. There is a field around the car park to play with the kids. Peaceful walks around the park are abundant as well if you need to get away. We saw 2 other parties over 2 hours of walking on a Sunday afternoon.

3) I would rate the walk easy. There is not much change in elevation and the paths are all paved with gravel or asphalt; there is little danger of losing your way. If you are looking for the authentic wilderness experience though, look elsewhere.

4) The toilets at the trail head needed some maintenance at the time I was there.

lovely easy walk.

Lovely walk... super busy though on a Sunday.

Beautifull walk, breathtaking views and not very difficult so perfecf for relaxing sunday

Spectacular views and fabulous weather.Gets very busy as the day progresses. I couldn’t believe the amount of people who wear flip flops on this walk, you need good footwear for this walk.

Very nice trail, amazing views, yellow flowers fields in spring, I prefer to start in Greystones and walk to Bray

Beautiful sight but pretty long

Amazing views great trial

Part of larger Arra Loop walk, this trail starts just off the road on the way up to The Graves of the Lienstermen. Free parking is available at Graves of the Lienstermen viewing point. Trail provides views out over Lough Derg.

I started with climbing Bray head, and walked over the cliffs to Greystones. On the end of the path you can turn right that brings you to the road where you can go to Greystones, or you can climb down the rocks for maybe 2 meters and you will find a steep wild path that will bring you to the original cliff trail. I did the last one. Then I went back by the original cliff trail to Bray. But you can also take the DART.
Personaly, I find the upper trail over the cliffs more beautiful then the original trail.

One of my favorite places on Earth, so far. I hiked the cliff walk with my daughter and it was beautiful and so peaceful. Be sure to carry a light rain jacket, since you never know when there will be a light sprinkle. I love Greystones.

We went to the cross and then followed the upper walk. Later on we joined the lower walk to get back. The weather was wonderful and it made all the difference

Very fun! We went a few years ago in April and it was gorgeous. Really was 4 seasons in a day as they say. Hot and humid, then cool and rainy. The hike itself isn't very strenuous, although the trail was washed out in some places and we had to take a detour, but it was still loads of fun. This was awhile back though, so it may be fixed by now. There were two chances to take side trails: one down to a beautiful beach with large cliffs, and one up to a cross overlooking the ocean.

A beautiful walk, with a gorgeous view of the Atlantic and of the Twelve Bens. Highly recommend as either a drive or a hike.

A great, not too strenuous hike with nice views. When we went, the trail was pretty flooded. In winter, it can sometimes be closed due to bad weather, so be careful about when you do this hike. But overall, though freezing, it was a great experience! We went from Greystones to Bray, but you can do it in either direction (or round-trip, though if you're taking the BART out, you might as well do it one-way because you can take the BART to one end and pick it up again at the other). Loved it!
