Blessington Greenway

Location: Co. Wicklow.

Difficulty: Easy.

Time: 1.5 hours each way.

Distance: 6.5km each way.

Equipment: Runners.

Families: Suitable for buggies.

Rating: 4 stars.

Reference: Information board at Avon Ri and there’s free maps available at the activity centre.

This is a linear walk from Avon Ri to Russborough House alongside Blessington lake. It boasts magnificent views of rolling green hills and the tranquil waters of the lake. There are alternative trails but if you have a buggy, as we did, we suggest that you stick to the greenway. The flower lined track is wide and at times becomes a boardwalk. This is a flat, easy, family friendly walk.
