Bray

by kevarms


Hi,
Apologies for this being not a travel-related question as such, but I couldn't think of a better place to ask. I am thinking of taking a job in Bray, Co. Wicklow.

Is Bray an expensive place to rent a flat? How about the crime rate? Any other places I could consider living within a reasonable commute (30 mins max) of Bray? How about Dun Laoghaire ? South Dublin ?

Also, what about public transport into/around Dublin ?

Thanks in advance
Kevin

Kevin,

I haven't lived out there, but visited Bray and Greystones for a few weeks last year. The Dublin DART travels down to the Bray train station almost hourly. So you could go to the DART website to see the stops and use that to consider your options. Bray is beautiful, and the beachfront is a lively locals hangout for wandering, walking the dog, etc. I loved the area myself, as long as you can afford it, I think you've made a great choice :)

I don't know how much a rental is in Bray, but if you email me, I can write a friend who lives out there and forward your contact info.

Take care, and good luck!
Kymba

The DART is not hourly during the week it is at 15-20 min intervals. Any place on the DART line would be handy. The 45 bus to Dublin takes about 45mins to an hour. Bray is practically South Dublin in terms of accomo, with the way the city is expanding, it even has the 01 area code, not the wicklow one!!

Travel Tips for Bray

Walking in Bray

by Rita_

"THE GATEWAY TO THE GARDEN OF IRELAND"

Bray, known as the Gateway to the Garden of Ireland, is now the eighth largest town in Ireland and is positioned in northeast Wicklow, just south of Dublin. The town is dominated by Bray Head, which rises steeply (241m/790 ft) above the sea, affording views of mountains and sea. The name of the town means "hill, rising ground".

Bray

by Deefstes

Bray is in some way considered to be the most southerly extension of Dublin even though it is well within the borders of county Wicklow.

The DART (Dublin train) comes as far down as Bray so it's very easy to reach.
