If you want to get moving but do not regularly exercise, this is still manageable. While parts of the walk are steep enough, there are plenty of opportunities to step off the main path and catch your breath. We saw several people (incl. children) taking...More

Lovely walk to amazing view. Suitable for most ages. My daughter could do it up and back at 4 years old. The path depends on how much rain there has been, but any mud is worth it when you reach the cross.

Brilliant day out with the family if you want a day out in the fresh air. The walk itself is easy enough my three year old managed it quite easily bring a packed lunch and your flying. Views are amazing also

Amazing view from the top of mountain just beside the cross. It is only hard to climb up. It is definitely worth to go. I wouldn't recommend it for childrens as it is a bit dangerous for them to climb.

This place was great! It was really busy when we went so it was hard to find a park, but once we did, we made the hike up to the Bray Cross. The hike itself was nice and worth it. It's a bit difficult if...More

On a sunny day, a walk or hike up Bray Head is a must. One side is easy, the other not so. We took the tough side up and gentle side down, thoroughly enjoyable.
