The town of Bray is located in County Wicklow, on Ireland's east coast and just south of Dublin. It is both a thriving urban centre and a seaside resort, therefore a suitable place for our commute to Dublin, capital of the Republic of Ireland, at the mouth of the River Liffey. Its historic buildings include Dublin Castle, dating to the 13th century, and imposing St Patrick’s Cathedral, founded in 1191. City parks include landscaped St Stephen’s Green and huge Phoenix Park, containing Dublin Zoo. The National Museum of Ireland explores Irish heritage and culture. It is also close to the Wicklow Mountains National Park for our visits to Avoca, Glendalough and Powerscourt.


ESPLANADE HOTEL l The Esplanade Hotel is the perfect choice of accommodation for leisure visitors to a very popular tourist region.
