Bray.ie launched its autumn tourism campaign for 2019 on Wednesday, August 28th, 2019.
The aim of the initiative is to achieve increased visitor numbers in order to help boost the local economy.
Our long-term objective is to bring the Bray brand to life, we will do this through our award-winning website bray.ie, helping build a more engaged relationship with current and potential visitors showcasing the many incredible experiences that you can’t get anywhere else.
Eugene Finnegan from Bray Tourism said, “Bray is the perfect staycation location, whether it’s a midterm family holiday or simply a weekend break. We’re home to some of the best experiences in the country. In a nutshell, Bray won’t disappoint you.”
From taking a stroll along the Victorian promenade to exploring the breathtakingly beautiful scenery from Bray Head or the dramatic rocky coastline along the Cliff Walk, enjoying the great social scene to experiencing the vibrant town centre.
It’s the best time to enjoy the autumn leaves in the People’s Park. You can shop for your winter wardrobe. Watch some amazing performances at the Mermaid Arts Centre or simply catch a live gig at the many pubs throughout the town.
Make a splash with family and friends at Shoreline’s swimming pool or have a great paintball battle. You can even zoom along the zip-lines at Squirrel’s Scramble Tree Adventure Park or trek across the County Wicklow countryside on horseback.
Tee off at one of the many renowned golf courses, which have remarkable views of Bray and South County Dublin, then afterwards unwind at one of the many bars, cafes and restaurants throughout the town.
