Absolutely love this place. It's like a little time machine. Well worth a visit. Don't forget to go to the shop also - some lovely examples of Avoca scarfs and other good quality clothing and food. The staff are genuinely friendly and enjoy a good chat
Authentic experience. The woollen mill itself was not open when I went, however I was there on a Sunday. The cafe has delicious homemade food and the wool shop has clothing for the whole family. However, it seems that wool shirts are not made anywhere in Ireland, and that's what I really wanted.
I had visited a couple Avoca locations and restaurants in the Dublin area and been a big fan. While driving back to Dublin from Kilkinney, I saw Avoca on the map and figured that's where the stores originated. We took a chance and drove through Avoca to find the original location of the Avoca Mill. It was originally a community owned mill that was privately bought and restored. While visiting the Mill you have the option to take a self guided tour to understand more about looks and blanket weaving. The tour was incredibly interesting and gave me a new found appreciation of their woven blankets. Definitely worth a stop by if you are near the area!
Avoca breakfast is the best around, or get a hot sandwich to go from the rotisary. James Wehlan butchers is nice addition, best quality meat around and potato gratan is a must.
Cozy and nice environment, Affordable prices, good service. Even with the messy restroom, I give you 5 stars because I got the best apple crumble ever. Thanks!
