Our home

Our Victorian home was built in 1887 and has been refurbished by us retaining all the original features yet with the comforts of modern day life so it is both charming and comfortable. It is only a 2 minute walk form the sea and also the train which brings you to the heart of Dublin in 30 minutes.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Bray has always attracted artists, writers and musicians. James Joyce wrote "The Dead" in a house beside the harbour and Oscar Wilde's principal residence is now The Strand Hotel on the seafront. One of Irelands greatest artists Paul Henry lived here along with U2, Hozier, Sinead O'Connor and Van Morrison even partied in our house many years ago.
There is also a beautiful Victorian promenade with both sandy and pebble beaches ,about 1km long, which leads to Bray Head. From there you can walk along the coast to Greystones, a stunning walk along the cliff edge which takes about 1 hour at a leisurely stroll. The promenade is lined with a variety of bars and restaurants.
We are a 2 minute walk from the train station which brings you to the heart of Dublin city in 35/40 minutes. You can drive there in 20- 30 minutes.
There are shops big and small all within a 2-5 minute walk from the house so you have every amenity within easy reach.
