Time Out magazine names Bray as top underrated spot in the World


It’s just 3 months since National Geographic bestowed the 35th top spot in the World upon Co. Wicklow.

Now another behemoth of a publication has gone and recognised little old us. Up there with many stunning corners of the world, Bray has been recognised as the 13th most underrated place in the world to visit!

Whilst Stephen Emms’ brief piece mentions the Victorian Promenade and the Panoramic views from Bray Head, we know that Bray has a whole host of fabulous amenities to brag about. With an ever growing multi cultural food scene and an equally lively line up of live music and entertainment, Bray remains a popular holiday destination.

The town of Bray has seen plenty of development during this time but it has also managed to keep many of the original facades intact, including the wonderfully aesthetic Martello Terrace. Constructed shortly after the railway was built, it remains a foreboding presence looking down along the promenade in the traditional cacophony of colours seen on many a harbour terrace.


Known and loved by holiday makers for at least a couple of centuries now, the town has moved with the times as regards activities. Once upon a time, a stroll along the promenade would have been the evening’s entertainment, however, the 21st Century demands a little more adventure and alot more adrenaline both of which Bray delivers.

Nestled between the mountains and the sea with a direct link to the city centre and plenty of attractions for all ages within a 30 minute drive, Bray has plenty to offer. One of the many reasons that Bray has been a favoured haunt of so many celebrities over the years.
