Locality
“Bray is a seaside area. It has some beautiful walks you can do. There is one called the Bray - Greystones Cliff Walk. It is all along the cliff. It is a narrow walk. So would not be suitable for small children. As you would not be able to use a buggy/stroller. Greystones Village is also a lovely place to eat and visit. You can also get the DART back to Bray if you do not feel up to walking back! ”
