Beach, plus barbecue, plus funfair equals pure joy in our book. What could be better than spending a day on the gorgeous beach at Bray with a beer in one hand and some tender, smokey meat in the other? Absolutely nothing.
On the weekend of July 16-17 between 11 am and 7 pm you’ll find Bray Breach buzzing with things to do, see and eat. The smell of sizzling meat will make your mouth water as stalls and food trucks roll up to serve all kinds of delicious dishes, but don’t gorge too much because there’s going to be a funfair too!
You can expect DJ sets and live music to set that beach BBQ ambiance alongside games like spin the bottle (we’re sure they’ll figure out pandemic logistics) and even a hot wings challenge! You will be able to enjoy delicious food straight from the barbecue and there will be vegetarian options available so don’t worry if meat’s not your thing.
Dublin has some of the best street food in Europe and the creme de la creme of Irish food trucks will be there to fill hungry bellies. Plus, you can always snack on some candyfloss at the funfair where there will be bumper cars, stalls, and games. The funfair will remain open until August 1, so even if you miss the BBQ you can still enjoy the bumper cars with a beautiful sea view.
Of course, the weather in Ireland is unpredictable and the Bray Beach BBQ Festival is weather-permitting but you can keep up to date by following the Instagram or Facebook page. You can also read more about the festival on the website, where you can also sign up as a vendor if you’d like. Admission is free!
