  • Greystones Bray Cliff Path ---Greystones

    On the Greystones side the path has been re routed though a wheat field to take it away from crumbling cliffs. This new section is a gentle climb on a straight gravel path. The views arent so great.

  • Cliff Walk ---Greystones

    The cliff walk between Bray and Greystones takes about 90 minutes. After the walk you can take a dart back to the starting point or walk back. The walk starting in from Bray is more scenic.
