Myself and my family had such a good stay in the Bray Head that we extended our stay for another week. It is located just next to the amazing cliff walk to Greystones and we enjoyed very good Irish weather and a hotel full of history and character. The owner Ena also made our stay and couldn't have done enough...

We booked this hotel/inn through the Irish Hotel Federation website as they had a special offer on, so it surprises me that this hotel isn't listed in the hotel section of tripadvisor. We have e-mailed the Irish Hotel Federation with our concerns of the property, its management and the general state of the rooms/hotel, please read on at your peril....

This place is awful and I cannot believe it is operating legally. It felt like a combination of Bates Motel and Hotel California. The stench when you walk in is overpowering. It appears to be operated only by an elderly lady and her son both of whom appeared incapable and unhospitable and who are off site most of the time.....

This building is seriously not inhabitable. The stink of mold, the dirt, the darkness, its great for a fashion shoot but thats about it. The poor unfortunates who frequent the "Hotel" are either downtrodden or just nuts!! No heating, old soggy beds, I can't even believe it is legal to charge people to stay in such a filthy and broken...

I was a tad circumspect on entering as the musty smell would be enough to put most people off, but glad we stayed. Not only for the character of the hotel which has seen better days, but just to meet Ena. A truly lovely lady who will make your stay memorable for her charm and charisma. The place reeks of...

Our second floor room with 5 windows had great views, plus we could hear the ocean. The location was handy for taking the Cliff Walk or strolling along the beach. Our stay was very peaceful and quiet. Breakfast was the only meal available at the hotel, but other places were nearby for lunch and dinners. A very historic place, but...

This place is not for everyone. If you like steryl environment better book a room in hospital ;) it is old. U can spot a bit dust. Furniture, towels , liniens are old but they are clean. There is no doubt about it! We had a very spacious room with sea view. We could hear waves hitting shore. Very relaxing...
