Information on east coast of Eire

Hi, Heading down from Belfast to Rosslaire beginning of May. Last time I stopped at a lovely little seaside village called Bray. This time I have 3 nights and I would be grateful for any other information on places I could stop overnight.
Many thanks
Derek

Two places I can recommend are Hoath to the north of Dublin, you park on quay, good restaurants nearby and the Dart railway into Dublin if you want,
The second is Greystones South of bray again easy parking along the coast road with good restaurants, the car park by the station has loos and outside water tap

One place I highly recommend is glendalough in the Wicklow mountains, last year we stayed in the main visitors car park overnight and had a great day walking the hills and lakes, as long as you don't set up camp ( chairs/ table/ awning) outside then you won't have a problem,

Now reitired thank god , looking forward to flying when the weather is good or motorhoming when itīs not, just like to get away from it all now I can take it easy.

Just remembered another delightful spot on the R772 Coast road to Arklow
58.835556N. -6.109444W just of the beach but no facilities,
We are also going again in May to do the Atlantic wild way if the weather plays ball,
Have a great trip,

Within a bus trip to Dublin is Camac Valley or South of Dublin is River Valley, see links below.

Howth Harbour is another option

Another lovely spot much nearer to Belfast is Carlingford. We woke up one morning to stunning views across the lough of the Mourne mountains. There's usually a few vans parked here, and it's a quaint little place.
