Bray is Ireland's longest established seaside town and traditionally has thriving tourism. Available in the immediate locality are fifteen 18-hole golf courses, a tennis club, a sailing club and horse riding. Other features of Bray are the Mermaid Arts Centre on Main Street, and the aquarium on Strand Road. Bray has a safe beach of sand and shingle to walk on, which is over 1.6km (1 mile) long, fronted by a spacious Esplanade. The scene is dominated by Bray Head, which rises steeply (241m/790 ft) above the sea, affording views of mountains and sea. The name of the town means "hill, rising ground".
