• Welcome to Blessington Parish

There is nothing as strong as us together – Ní neart go cur le chéile
We dwell with the shade of each other – Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine

Blessington is a picturesque location at the foot of the Wicklow mountains. Being surrounded by mountains, rivers and lakes it makes a tranquil setting and an idyllic place to live or visit. A warm welcome is always extended to visitors and new residents of our Parish. This website is designed to give parish members and visitors details of our upcoming parish events and services. Please feel free to get in touch with the Parish Office with any queries you may have.
