USA Today names McDonald's in Bray 'city' one of the coolest in the world

McDonald’s in Bray has come fifth in the top ten coolest golden arches worldwide.

IF YOU’VE EVER been to McDonald’s in Bray, congrats, you’ve been to one of the ten coolest golden arches locations in the world.

USA Today has chosen what it thinks are the top ten McDonalds’ restaurants, and Bray ‘city’ comes in at number five.

It’s located in the tudor-style Bray Town Hall at the top of Main Street in the town.

According to Buildings of Ireland the hall was built in 1882-83, although the gates in the north porch bear the date 1881.

It was commissioned by Reginald Brabazon who wanted to “do benefit for the town of Bray” and the ground floor operated as a market house until the 1940s.

The upper floor still serves as the chambers for Bray Town Council, while McDonald’s moved in downstairs in 1997. Cheers Lord Brabazon!
