Stunning houses, good food, swimming pool

Had a very enjoyable 2 night stay in Avon Ri. I stayed in one of the houses with friends. The cost for 2 nights was very reasonable and the rooms were very spacious. We only had one key to share between 5 people which was a little bit awkward but would be perfect for a group doing everything together or for a family. We were able to leave the key in reception but extra keys would have been better in my situation. Beautiful location alongside Blessington Lake with a nice flat greenway walk to Russborough house. There were probably other walks as well. Great facilities for families such as the swimming pool, segways, tennis courts, bicycle hire.


Attended a friends wedding up the Rd so we stayed here with another couple

Stunning place... friendly staff clean comfortable & well worth the money. I will be returning with my children next time. This place is a slice of heaven. We had breakfast out on the balcony looking over the lake and at the mountains, this was breathtaking. Food was lovely in breakfast bar. 

The house we stayed in was spotless, modern & plenty of rooms. Beautiful views from windows. Can't wait to return to do activities with my family. We rented a house for a week on site. It had three large bedrooms and three washrooms two with showers and one with a full large bath. Everything was supplied and if you needed anything they get it for you. It had the perfect view of the Blessington lakes and the mountains. The food in the restaurant was amazing. a true visit to everyone that comes to Ireland. The views are what you expect heaven to look like. Pure Irish hospitality.


Loved it!

Stayed here last year with another couple and our 3 year old. We all had a great time, lots of different activities to suit everyone. Houses were huge and very clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful too. Will be returning very soon!


Family break

Fabulous place - second time staying here - will be returning! Accommodation excellent, swimming pool enjoyed by all and lovely walks! Central location for sightseeing and shopping! Houses are well-equipped and spacious!


Fantastic Hen Weekend

Everything at Avon Ri was perfect for my Hen Party. The staff were so pleasant and accommodating to all of us (There was over 30). The houses were ideal for having our own space to chill out in a house on the Friday night. The food on both nights was gorgeous with a lovely private room on Saturday for our meal. The activities, the view, outside balcony off the bar overlooking the lakes is just stunning to have a few drinks, everything was just perfect.  Thanks to all the staff at Avon Ri.


Girly Weekend Fun

A group of us girls went to the self-catering houses of Avon Ri a few months ago - and we were so impressed! The houses were fantastic! We booked 3 houses to hold 18 people. Each house had 3 rooms - two doubles and one twin was in our house so I presume the others were the same. Two of the bedrooms were en-suite. There was ample amount of bedding and towels for the party.

The kitchen area wasn't huge but was fine for what we wanted it for. We brought our own food to cook breakfast - and out of the small kitchen 18 people got a full fry up! Kitchen was equipped with 6 of everything - knives, forks, plates, glasses, etc. It had microwave, toaster and kettle.

Houses were lovely and warm - was afraid they would be cold/damp, but when you opened the door you could feel the heat. Houses were clean. 

Had a lovely dinner in the Restaurant on the 2nd night - 4 courses were very reasonable. They had a set menu for us which included steak and they didn't charge a supplement for this. 

Any staff we met were so helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend!


What a place and right on our door step. The location and super staff with the greatest views that could match anywhere in the world. I would highly recommend for everyone to visit and stay. Again I could not say enough about the staff. Well done Avon Ri.


Had an absolutely relaxing break.  Couldn’t fault anything.  Staff really friendly - nothing too much trouble for them - top marks. We will be back.
