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.

Definitely recommend!! Lovely views and very easy to get to

Nice walk with nice views. It's my second time doing this trail and I'll be back again to do the Bray Head Loop.

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.

I do this walk with friends and my dog all the time - perfect for a Sunday stroll with beautiful sights of the coast and not far from Dublin.

Great trail for a different perspective of Ireland.

A lovely walk particularly if you go up Bray Head and go back to Greystones via the peak as the cliff walk gets too busy

I’ve been on this trail many times since January and they have finally fixed the rough spots with crushed rock. Always a pleasure to see the birds nesting on the sea cliffs and the beautiful wild flowers

Not the prettiest day, but even in the rain the trail was beautiful! I hiked up to Bray’s Head and walked along the hill and through a pasture and caught up to the main path later on.

Hiked from Bray - took about an hour and 20 min. Last 20 min was through construction so I elected to train it back to Bray. Good running trail

if taking the trail from the cross towards Greystone there is a new gate that shows how to get on the lower path (a bit of rock climbing involved)

This trail is gorgeous and easy to do. However, it is not fun when it’s overrun with unprepared tourist, who, at narrow areas, refuse to go single-file. At times, you’ll find the trail covered with rubbish and dog waste. Many people arrive dressed unprepared, causing traffic jams as they try to navigate puddles of muddy water, without touching it with their new trainers. This is an amazing site, and a great experience - but if you are looking for a hike for zen; this isn’t it.

Parasailors above and the ocean down below. Convenient for us that both ends are close to the railway DART stations so that we can take the kiddos along (one-way).

I just completed the route and it is not far off 17km you can make it longer than the map if you want. To confirm it's Bray-Greystones and back. Great walk I went on a cold windy day and still amazing.
