Tips
Getting There

The is a walk between Bray and Greystones with beautiful coastal views of the Irish Sea and County Wicklow. This path leads you along the railway that was built between 1847 and 1856. The cliffs are breathtaking and the flora and fauna is very diverse. From seagulls, to lizards, kittiwakes, and black guillemots you see a wide range of animals. Furthermore, Bray head is an excellent location for dolphin and whale watching. All along the trail you find information such as an anecdote about a train crash in 1869. While not physically demanding and well maintained, it is a natural walk with variable surface quality. Winter frosts can, occasionally, result in rock falls from the cliff face. On these rare occasions the walk is closed to the public.

Bring water, rain jacket, and boots or runners

Travelling by DART you can start the walk at either Bray Station and rejoin the DART at Greystones or at Greystones Station and rejoin the DART at Bray. The walk is accessible from the Sea Front, Bray; Raheen Park, Bray; Cliff Road, Wyndgates, Greystones; The Grove, Greystones and Greystones Harbour.

Busier than expected given it is lockdown. Path is a little damaged in the middle but contrary to the signs it IS open the full length. All trails route is incorrect at the grey stones end but that’s nothing new.

Fabulous walk! And if the weather is good it’s a bonus, we have also done it in bad weather and is still lovely but a bit muddy. Great for any age group.

this was one of my favorite trails while living in dublin. i did it with visitors all the time. it's a beautiful walk— easily done in sneakers (no hiking boots necessary). bray is lovely and the coastline is stunning. greystones has great restaurants, so definitely plan to arrive there for lunch time.

I live in Bray and walk the Cliff Walk regularly. Use the car park on the Head overlooking the town. It’s free and safe. Start of the walk is meters from car park. Fantastic views on sunny days but equally good in less favourable conditions. Enjoy the walk, the sights, the fresh sea air and lots more. If you climb to the cross at the top of the Head views are even more spectacular and there is a Loop Walk of the Head which takes you way above the Cliff Walk, super.

Weather was lovely when we did the hike! Grateful. No plastic or beer bottles to be seen, which was pleasing. We took the train to Bray and the trail was easy to find. We just followed everyone with backpacks on. First you walk past the beach, we saw a-lot of sail boats. The trail was moderate and parts where you we had to climb stairs. The view was incredible, and I found sweet wild berries to eat as we walked. Bring a jacket with you it does get cold in the shade. We completed our walk around 5ish, walked all the way to Greystones. We got a bit confused with the construction going on. Look a bit like ghost town at first — but when we reached the harbor we saw the village started on the other side of the construction. Note if you want to go for a beer and food there are lovely pubs/restaurants in the village! Just take a turn before the harbor and walk straight in to the village.
