Blessington Street Basin was first commissioned by Dublin Corporation as a water reservoir for the city in 1810. It underwent an extensive programme of refurbishment between April 1993 and October 1994 when it was then formally re-opened as a public amenity by President Mary Robinson in the company of the Lord Mayor, John Gormley.

I discovered this place purely by chance, it's a beautiful little park that once was an important reservoir to the city. Today, it offers an oasis of calm... minutes from the hustle and bustle of busy O'Connell Street. It's the perfect spot to chill or eat your lunch, and reminds me of the Iveagh Gardens on the Southside. A real local gem that you wouldn't like sharing with too many people!
