About the teacher’s accommodation


Our home is a lovely quaint bungalow which is on a beautiful road which sweeps down to the Seafront in Bray. Down on the very pretty Victorian Bray seafront is the lovely promenade with views out across the sea and views up to Bray head. The house has 4 bedrooms down stairs and two up stairs. There are some spare beds so we can offer a twin room or a single room. There is a built in wardrobe and a shared bathroom. There is also another room which may be offered that has a small en-suite and a double bed.
