Blessington Lake is such a relaxing, picturesque place to spend a bit of time. There is a lovely walk you can do along it's shores. Next time I'll bring the bike as the trails are wide enough to accommodate both walkers and bikes. Most visitors go to Russborough House which is along the walking route but sadly we just didn't have the time. Next visit though, definitely!
Easily accessible by public bus from Dublin and plenty of parking if you arrive by car like we did.

Nice greenway from the Avon Ri center in Blessington. Great place for a family day out .... your walking around the lakes and via some forests - with a brief jaunt onto the main road to cross the lake. Great for wearing out the toddler and we had a nice coffee at the end in the Avon Ri hotel....trail was busy but it was sunday afternoon - but it was by and large buggy friendly

Just a short hop from Dublin this can easily be done as an out and back or a linear walk by dropping a car where you want to finish to retrieve the car at the start. Or if you get the timing right you could do it by public bus.
It's an easy stroll for all ages. In all weather. With pets and even room for the kids on bikes.
With small kids there are some great sections of woode to explore.
And adults can enjoy Russborough house or one of the many eateries that Blessington has to offer.

This is an all weather drive, perfect on a sunny day, however also good on a dreary day, as there is no one around we essentialy had the roads to ourselves, the lake is currently the lowest we have ever seen, so the rainy days are welcomed.
