Towns of Wicklow
Blessington —County Wicklow
The town is a lively spot particularly at weekends with its own character and charming tree-lined Main Street. On the Blessington lakes the visitor can partake in many water pursuits such as fishing, sailing, windsurfing, boating, leisure cruising and canoeing. Russborough House, the home of the Beit collection of paintings, is beautifully maintained and furnished; it is a 'must see' for any tourist interested in great Irish houses. With Co. Kildare to the west, the Wicklow Mountains & Glendalough to the east and Dublin Centre just 20km to the north this is an excellent base from which you can enjoy your holiday.
