“Gorgeous location”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

on a sunny day you could be in Croatia or Portugal. Really amazing location half an hour from Dublin. We could relax while mu husband conducted a couplke of days business in Dublin and really felt welcome in the area.
Great walks and bike rides all over the area.

“Blessington Lakes”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Blessington Lakes are reachable by car from Dublin about 40 minutes drive from Dublin.
They are besides Blessington Village. The lakes lie in the beautiful scenery of Wickow Co., there are two lakes there and they are used as a damn for drinking water supply for people.
I really recommend to visit this place, because it's a peaceful corner of the Wicklow garden with
cleanest water compare to River Liffey or the Canal Water in Dublin.
We were there with the van with the tour company " Put the hands On", the driver of the Van was Tom O'Connell, he was very informative. Thanks.

“Nice place to visit at least once...”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

Have been here a few times. A beautiful and peaceful place to spend some time. I remember visiting it during the time it snowed and the views were just amazing.
