County Wicklow is known for its walking trails and the coastal path from Bray to Greystones is one of the best. The 7km cliff walk runs close to the Dublin-Wexford railway, built during the 19th century. The railway workers built the path in order to transport tools and materials to the line below. They also created one of the most picturesque cliff walks on the east coast into the bargain. Alternatively, take the path from Bray to the top of Bray Head, to get panoramic views of Bray, North East Wicklow and Dublin Bay, plus the neighbouring mountains of the Great and Little Sugar Loaf.
