BLESSINGTON LAKESIDE HERITAGE PROJECT

The Blessington Lakes are nestled in the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains.  The waters of this man made reservoir form the centrepiece in the landscape.  

Whether you are cycling, driving or walking, there are a wealth of stories and folklore to be discovered in the local landmarks; giving glimpses of Neolithic settlements and flooded villages along with granite stone cutting traditions.  

The lakes and surrounding area are popular with outdoor enthusiasts and host a wonderful natural environment.  Recognised as a Special Area of Conservation for the internationally important population of Greylag Goose and a host of overwintering birds.  Look out for these and other wildlife as as you explore this very special part of Wild Wicklow
