Greystones, Co. Wicklow

Greystones (Na Clocha Liatha in Irish) is a coastal town in County Wicklow, just South of Bray which has kept its town image through the years, and is still widely thought of as a village despite a relatively large and growing population. Greystones is part of the commuter belt and now has the southern terminal station of the DART line; enabling easier access to and from Dublin.

Greystones has two beaches. The North Beach at the harbour is a stony beach and some of its length is ovelooked by the ever-eroding cliffs of Bray head (south). The second beach is to the south of the 'grey stones'. It is a sandy beach, and is about a half mile long. It is a Blue Flag beach the beach receives many visitors and tourists during the summertime.

It is an ideal holiday centre for those interested in outdoor activities. There are two excellent golf courses and a driving range close to the town. Field games such as rugby, soccer, Gaelic football and baseball are well catered for and there are excellent all-weather tennis courts.

There is a very active sailing club catering for the smaller sailing craft. Greystones also has a very active angling club - the Ridge Angling Club catering for shore and sea anglers. A marina is currently under proposal.

Greystones hosts Wicklow's biggest Festival - the Greystones Arts Festival over the 1st weekend in August every year.
