Incredible Location

Avon Rí is set in the heart of some of the most beautiful views in Ireland. If you think our scenery looks familiar, that’s because it’s been featured frequently in a number of film productions. You feel like you’re miles away from anywhere, yet we’re just 30 minutes’ drive from Dublin, making it very easy for you and your guests to reach us.

We have plenty of accommodation for everyone, so you can enjoy:

  • The Lakeview Restaurant banqueting room, a lavish, stylish room with a Mediterranean feel, featuring an adjoining outside patio overlooking the lake.
  • The Russborough banqueting room, which has its own private bar, as well as large bay windows overlooking the lake.

  • Mini Moon luxury hotel break in Ireland  (based on your chosen wedding package)
  • Ample car parking

Should you or your guests decide to extend your stay, we can arrange a host of different outdoor activities including kayaking. Avon Rí  is also on the renowned Blessington Greenway walk. Winding along the lake’s shore, forests and woodland, you’ll encounter an ancient medieval Ringfort along the trail before finishing your ramble at the Palladian mansion at Russborough House. It’s a relaxing way to take in the impressive scenery and wildlife.
