Blessington's Russborough House has been included on a list of 93 heritage sites around the world considered to be endangered. The 18th century demesne now finds itself placed on the World Monument Funds 2010 watch list, alongside 92 other cultural heritage sites from 46 countries such as Gaudi's Sagrada Familia church in Barcelona and the Peruvian city of Machu Pichu. The house was designed by Richard Cassells and was donated to the State in 1978 by owners Sir Alfred and Lady Beit. It is open to the public and is managed by the Alfred Beit Foundation. However, Russborough's inclusion on the list is due to worries over its designed and natural landscape rather than the Palladian mansion itself. Considered one of the most intact and important designed landscapes ever created in Ireland, it hasn't been accessible to the public in the 30 years Russborough has been open to the public for visitation.
