Day trip from Dublin: Bray and Greystones

Buddha bowl (a little of everything), salad plate, and latte at The Happy Pear.

Happy Monday! I hope you had a good weekend. Usually, I struggle on the weekends because I’m never sure what to do. It’s too cold to be wandering around outside all day, I’m trying to not spend so much money, and I don’t feel like hanging out in the middle of a busy city where the majority of people are hell-bent on shopping 24/7. BUT thanks to my new friend Sheila (from Instagram) my weekend was fantastic!

I spent the night at my friend Sheila’s on Saturday since we planned a wee day trip south of Dublin for Sunday. We took a train to Bray (around 30-40 minutes) and then walked 7km along the Cliff Walk out to Greystones. The walk was fairly easy and only took us an hour and a half. And luckily, the weather wasn’t too bad either.

In Greystones, we lunched at The Happy Pear, and all-vegetarian restaurant with loads of fresh, wholesome vegan options! This is my favourite place for eating out in Dublin so far. Too bad it’s a bit of a journey outside of Dublin, but at least I’ll save some money by not eating there every other day.


The past few weeks in Dublin haven’t been the easiest for me but thanks to Sheila, I’ve actually had some fun here! Our day trip to County Wicklow and this past weekend are some of the highlights of my time here.

I’m so lucky to have met a new friend here in Dublin!
