Irish Daytrip: Bray to Greystone

Now, that I am done with my master dissertation (WOHOO) I can once again enjoy the perks of living in Dublin, one of them being the beautiful nature surrounding the city.

Just the other day me and my friend decided to go to Bray. Bray is a little town at the ocean, which looks a little bit like a typical British coastal town. It has a few places to eat along the esplanade and it also has a little funfair (mainly for kids) located at the end of it.

Once we drove into Killiney I was speechless for a second. These cliffs full of different greens and flowers in yellow or violet and then this endless ocean!

So just this weekend I was traveling around Ireland a bit and I thought I might give you some insights and definitely photos about the places I’ve seen around this beautiful, green country so far.
