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.
Thousands took advantage of the long-awaited spring sunshine on St. Patrick’s Day and were treated to the sights and sounds of marching bands, majorettes, local community groups, businesses, clubs and schools as they weaved their way through the town in spectacular fashion.
Over 40 groups took part in the Bray parade which featured a large multicultural element, music, dance and entertainment all celebrating the spirit of St. Patrick, which started at the Town Hall and finished at the viewing stand along the Bray Seafront.
The feel-good atmosphere was created by the 1,500 strong parade participants and they deserve huge credit for putting on such a spectacular show each year.
Bray’s St. Patrick’s Festival was proudly brought to you by Bray & District Chamber of Commerce and Wicklow County Council.
