By Car:

After taking Exit 7 from the N11, you meet a roundabout.  Passing a Topaz garage, take the 3rd Exit, signs for Greystones/Kilruddery. A second roundabout comes quickly, take the 2nd Exit- signs for Greystones/Kilruddery.

Follow this road for a few minutes until it ends in a T-Junction roundabout (just past the entrance to Kilruddery on your right).

At this roundabout take 2nd Exit/Turn right onto the road signed Greystones R761. Follow this road for some minutes. You will pass the Bray Golf Club on your left.

When you meet a sign to slow to 60km, prepare to look out for your left turning. When you see a sign for Windgates Cattery on your right, very quickly you will see the green sign for Cliff Road, Windgates on your left. Take this turn and follow the road all the way until you come down a steep hill with some houses on your left-hand side and a bollarded car park on your right.


Drive past the houses and the car park. The private entrance to ‘Gorse Hill’ is at the end of that car park and at the beginning of a narrow laneway. 


Drive down this narrow laneway to reach visitor’s parking to your right. Find Gorse Hill centre to your left as you enter the car park.
