I’m glad that you want to visit Ireland, there are so many quaint villages where to relax and that are well-connected to major cities.
As it seems that you’re in between Bray
, it’s hard to pick one. Both villages are in County Wicklow
a great place for people who love tranquillity and there are many natural attractions around them such as the Powerscourt House & Gardens, the Wicklow Mountains and Glendalough just to name a few.
Personally, I visited Bray, since it was easy to reach from Dublin via the DART
(an electric rail system that takes you around Dublin). It’s a nice town with lots of restaurants and a lovely beach. Also, I had the chance to take a nice long walk along the promenade and up to the hill "Bray Head", a relaxing spot from where you can enjoy the bay view. If you'll have time, I’d recommend you to explore also the other coastal villages
such as Greystones, Dunloaghaire, Dalkey, Howth and Malahide: you’ll need just a Leap Card
and jump on and off the DART.
Finally, due to the spread of COVID-19, don't forget to check our Traveller Health page
and Viaggiare Sicuri
website whenever you'll decide to come and visit us.
