WARNING: The Cliff Walk between Bray and Greystones has been temporarily closed due to a number of landslides. Parts of the walk have become unstable due to the prolonged period of very heavy rainfall on top of the very wet preceding months of January and February. Some of the landslides are visible from the walk but others are not and are considered dangerous as those using the walk would not be aware of same. the Council is assessing the situation to determine the extent of the collapse and possibilities for remedial action and investigating the feasibility of an alternative route as a diversion over the most hazardous section and are arranging to put in place measures for the short-term protection of the public. The patience of the public is appreciated during this time. See below safe loop options.

One of the highlights of walking in Wicklow. This linear walk takes you from Bray to Greystones along the stunning coastal path. The path is well maintained and you can return by light rail (DART) to the start point. Greystones has plenty to offer the hungry walker after beautiful views and a range of marine wildlife. From Bray start, there is a path leading to the top of Bray Head offering stunning views of the Irish Sea, The Wicklow Mountains and Bray.
This is a very enjoyable walk in a spectacular coastal setting linking Bray and Greystones. It brings you around the side of Bray Head above the railway line and rocky coastline on a path which is a bit rough in places, with a steep climb at the Bray end. Views both up and down the coast are breath-taking.
