Welcome to the award-winning Bray.ie website.
From its rich heritage and splendid scenery to excellent transport links, a bustling town centre and thriving industry, Bray has a wide range of festivals and activities to keep visitors entertained throughout the year.
From taking a dip in the waters of Bray’s Blue Flag beach to enjoying Coasteering along Bray’s absolutely amazing coastline, checking out the spectacular views from Bray Head to walking the Cliff Walk, Bray is packed full of incredible experiences that you can’t get anywhere else.
This week (Week commencing Monday, August, 28th 2017) the Bray and District Chamber of Commerce and Bray.ie launched its autumn tourism campaign. The strategy aims to attract more visitors, increase spend and boost the local economy.
It's the perfect time to see the leaves change in the Peoples Park. You can shop for your winter wardrobe, watch some amazing performances at Mermaid Arts Centre, catch a live gig at the many pubs throughout the town or dine out in one of the many cafes and restaurants throughout the town.
Some event highlights this autumn include:
There's plenty to explore in Bray so what are you waiting for..... enjoy a cosy break this autumn.
