Greystones is for living. It is for families. It’s for Mums and Dads and children. Greystones is for work, rest and play. It’s for visitors – for walking, sightseeing, the seaside, for the restaurants and the cafes.
Come to us by car, bus, bicycle or Dart along the coast. Better still, take the Cliff Walk from Bray and reward yourself with great sea views and the bird colonies clinging to Bray Head. Then treat yourself to an ice cream, coffee, lunch or a pint when you’re done (or carry on up the Sugar Loaf mountain).
Out little town sandwiched between the Wicklow mountains and the sea has grown a lot over the past 200 years. And we’re growing still – look around at all the new homes and the young families eager to live here.
We are proud of our Victorian and Edwardian architectural heritage and social history that goes with it but we’re not afraid of the future either.
Living in Greystones
We have some of the best schools and sports facilities anywhere in Ireland. There’s top class soccer, rugby and GAA pitches, tennis and bowling clubs, an athletics track, indoor pool and gym facilities. Golf? Look no further!
We have great swimming – indoor or in the Irish Sea, take your pick. We have a lovely coastal walk joining our two main beaches . . . and a spanking new harbour and marina in between, plus a thriving local theatre.
And if you want to dally a while, do. And while you’re with us, visit any of our many cafes, have a meal in one of our restaurants and spent some time in one of our pubs – we have modern, traditional and retro.
Greystones is and always will be synonymous with healthy and happy living
Creating the Perfect Work – Life Balance
For those of us who live here, Greystones is a joy and a privilege. If you come to visit, you are most welcome. We hope you’ll find this site helpful but most of all, we hope you’ll want to come back.
Greystones is a place where the work life balance works. The town is very well connected with a regular rail and bus service, motorway connections, taxis and the hourly Aircoach. There is a cycling lane from the south to the heart of the town.
Since being awarded the title of “The World’s Most Liveable Community” at the 2008 LivCom awards in China, the town has gone from strength to strength. While it has a strong reputation for sports such as golf and rugby, it is also home to a stretch of varied sporting facilities known as a the ‘Golden Mile’.
