Added by Simona Galeotta


The 6 km Bray Greystones Cliffwalk is ideal for visitors to Dublin or Wicklow, or anyone who enjoys a taste of Ireland's scenery, nature and birdlife. Also good for children. Amongst the birds you can see are Great Cormorant, European Shag, Kittiwake, Razorbill, Common Guillemot, Greater Whitethroat, Great Black-backed Gull, Eurasian Oystercatcher, Ruddy Turnstone, Meadow Pipit, Rock Pipit and Red-throated Diver.



The trail is accessible in less than one hour from Dublin by DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transit), the Irish train which runs along the coast from Howth to Greystones, and it can either be started from Bray Seafront or Greystones Harbour. Additionally, you can decide if you want to go back walking or using the train. Park (to pay) available in Graystone or Bray. The walking route is marked with red arrows.
