The Blessington Greenway walk links the historic town of Blessington with the Palladian mansion at Russborough House. The trail starts at Blessington and leads south along the shores of Blessington Lakes and through forest and natural woodland. The Greenway commences at Avon Ri Activity Centre at the southern end of the town and weaves its way along the shores, crosses an ancient medieval Ringfort, uses the footpath along part of the N81 before turning back into the forest at Burgage Moyle lane. It then crosses the Valleymount Road (R758) and makes its way to Russellstown Bay adjacent to Russborough House. Along the way you will have the opportunity to appreciate the magnificent scenery and wildlife in the area.

Explore the magical miniature world of Tara’s Palace Museum of Childhood at Powerscourt House, Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow. Perfect for all ages, 5 to 105. Tara’s Palace is one of the greatest dolls houses in the world, on a par with the Fairy Castle in Chicago, and Queen Mary’s own doll’s house at Windsor Castle in London.

Our older guests love to reminisce about bygone days, while younger visitors marvel at the toys their parents, grandparents, and great grandparents played with. Must be seen to be believed.

All profits are donated to Irish Children’s Charities.

Russborough was built between 1741-1750 and is regarded as one of Ireland’s most beautiful houses. It has magnificent views of the Blessington Lakes and Wicklow Mountains .

In 1978 Sir Alfred Beit opened the house for guided tours and there have been over 1 million visitors since. The house which is beautifully maintained and lavishly furnished contains fine furniture, tapestries, carpets, porcelain, silver and much of the Beit collection of paintings. It also has beautiful ceilings, plaster work and a fine mahogany staircase.

Meet Patrick Gaffney: buried at Johnny fox's Pub

Here at Johnny Fox's we have a little in-house joke where we say that people are dying to get into Johnny fox's because we're so busy with people trying to get tables.

But we can actually prove that people have died to get into Johnny Fox's.

Here we have Mr. Patrick Gaffney! His ashes were sent to us in 1997 when he passed away. And his last wish in his recorded will and testament in America, was to be buried in Johnny Fox's Pub.

Mr Gaffney says goodnight to us every night.
