Blessington Lakes

The Blessington Lakes in County Wicklow were formed 50 years ago by the building of the Poulaphouca Dam and hydro-electric power station and today serve a dual purpose of providing power and water supply to the Dublin region.

The tranquil setting of these lakes is beautiful. Whether you would like a relaxing or adventurous trip, the Blessington Lakes offers it all from the peaceful stunning surroundings to activities include waterbus lake cruises, canoeing, windsurfing, sailing, pony trekking and riding lessons. The list is endless.

Only a short drive from Maldron Hotel Tallaght, we can provide a comfortable stay in one of our 119 bedrooms. Enjoy our full buffet breakfast each morning before heading out for the days adventure! Free parking & Wi-Fi make us an ideal choice for both young & old alike. 

Blessington Lakes offers both boat hire and tours. You can take a tour of the lake, test out your fishing skills and see all that the Blessington Lakes has to offer. If you like to explore, learn how to row a lake boat or find a secluded beach for a picnic can enjoy all that Blessington Lakes has to offer.
