Pubs and Clubs
When it comes to nightlife, Bray enjoys the best of both worlds, atmospheric pubs and clubs on our doorstep and DART/late night bus services from the hotspots of Dublin.

Pubs in Bray
Bray has traditional pubs with good old-fashioned customer-centred high standards you'd expect from a provincial town, and is also home to some of Ireland's most sophisticated watering holes.

The Harbour Bar, at the harbour end of the seafront attracts celebrities Peter O' Toole, Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson and Sinead O'Connor to name a few and in 2010 was awarded the acolade of Lonely Planet Guide Best Pub in the World (though some of the other pubs quip that it's not quite the best pub in Bray!!). There is live music in the lounge every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday night with live trad music in the bar every Saturday night.  

The internationally recognised Porterhouse brand has its origins in its first pub on Bray Seafront, where its famous home brew stout is served to locals and tourists alike, alongside gutsy gastropub fare.

The Martello Bar, also on the seafront, is home to the Bray Comedy Club, venue for national and international comedy acts and sure to put you in a good mood.

A few more of the many pubs to sample on your pub crawel through Bray include Hollands (Main St.; award winning off-licence), O' Driscolls (seafront), Katie Gallagher's (seafront) Jim Doyle's (seafront) and the Vevay Inn (Veyay Road).


Nightclubs in Bray
For the late night scene on the seafront, try the Porterhouse's Eclectic Garden (Thurs to Sun, 10pm 'til late) or Koo at the Martello (7 nights a week 11am to 2.30am). Club Oiche on the Quinnsborough Road also draws the crowds ( doors open@10pm 'til late).
