Blessington Street Park
Blessington street, Dublin 7
Blessington street basin is a hidden gem of Dublin, a quiet oasis in the middle of the city. In the centre of the well-kept, longish Blessington Street Park, there is a lovely pond with a gorgeous willow in the middle. Walking around the pond does not take long, it is easily manageable with a wobbly toddler, too. Left from the entrance, there is a charming Fairy Tree, so make sure you find it when visiting the basin. :) Next to the park there is a large playground http://dublinfox.com/show/playgrounds/Blessington%20Street%20Basin.html . Parking is easy in the streets around the park, but note that it is a pay & display area.
How to get there: Bus: 4, 19, 19a
Entry is free
