8 spots where you should go to eat while out in Bray

Katy Thornton

Wondering where to go after a day by the seaside?

Spending some time at the beach can be hungry work. Bray is a gorgeous spot in Wicklow to enjoy some time by the seaside, as well other family fun activities, like the aquarium, or the Bray to Greystones (and back) cliff walk. No matter your reason for venturing out, we have some of the best spots in Bray where you should go to eat while you’re there.

8. Maison Moli

Location: Strand Road

Right on the seafront is Maison Moli, a top Bray spot for breakfast, lunch, brunch, or dinner. And if you’re looking for a bit of entertainment to go alongside your feed, Maison Moli also often has live music outdoors.


Location: Albert Walk

NINE only opens until 4pm every day so bear that in mind if you’re looking to try it. Although they have just hosted their very first supper club that included a five course tasting menu. Who knows, maybe they’ll host another one soon, given its success.

6. Dockyard No.8

Location: Harbour Road

Dockyard No.8 is walk in only but it’s an absolute belter of a spot, and to top it all off, it’s also dog friendly. Open 8.30am to 5pm daily, this restaurant serves serious comfort food, such as chicken goujons, burgers, and French toast.

5. The Palm

Location: Strand Road 

The latest addition to Bray is The Palm, and it opens daily from 12pm. They do delicious pub grub (think beef and Guinness stew and steak sandwiches) as well as all your favourite cocktails.

4. The Martello

Location: Strand Road

Of course a trip to Bray is never complete without a feed at The Martello. They have live music seven days a week, as well as drink towers, and an extensive menu that would suit even the pickiest of eaters.

3. Catalyst Coffee

Location: Multiple locations

For a coffee in Bray, Catalyst is the place for it. Whether you’re in need of caffeine, a toastie, or a sugary pastry, Catalyst will sort you out at either of their Bray cafés.

2. The Wild Goose

Location: Main Street

If you want to kick back and relax, enjoy a nice beer garden, or find somewhere to watch some sports, The Wild Goose on the Bray main street is great for a feed as well as some lovely bevvys.

1. Fish Bar

Location: Dock Terrace

Nothing like spending some time in the fresh sea air to be in the mood for some seafood. Fish Bar is based in The Harbour, and serves up fresh fish and chips, as well as some fish burgers that would given McDonald’s Fillet of Fish a run for its money.

Bray is not just a beautiful spot visually for a day of sea and sand, it’s also a great spot for a feed, and definitely worth a visit if you’re looking to have a day trip anytime soon.
