Bray Heritage Centre

Bray Heritage Centre is housed in the Old Courthouse at Lower Main St. Bray. The building was erected in 1841 on the site of an old market house. After the town commissioners were appointed in 1859, their meetings were held here until the Town Hall was built in 1880's.

There is a permanent exhibition in the Centre depicting one thousand years of the History of Bray- "From Strongbow to Steam". This exhibition is both educational and entertaining for old and young alike, and the local schools can benefit greatly from this cultural and historical experience.

The Heritage Centre is closed at present, pending refurbishment.
