Hotels Central to Avoca
Although the centre of Avoca itself is a small and serene place, as befits somewhere used as the location for hit BBC drama Ballykissangel, it still represents the perfect base for exploring the surrounding countryside. Book a hotel or guesthouse close to Main Street, which runs along the length of Avoca and you’ll be within easy walking distance of all the local amenities.
From the room of a hotel or inn based here, you’ll be able to walk to places such as Avoca Heritage Centre and Avoca Tours, from which you’ll be able to book walking or cycling tours of the whole region. So all you need to organise informative visits to nearby heritage sites or a more ambitious coastal walk involving some fishing and panning for gold will be on your hotel’s doorstep.
After an exhausting day exploring you’ll be able to recover in a hotel or bed and breakfast which offers stunning views of the surrounding countryside and is just minutes away from the local pubs and restaurants.
Hotels Around Avoca
One of the key selling points of any trip to Avoca is the beauty of the surrounding countryside, and by booking accommodation in a hotel or lodge which is situated slightly away from the centre of Avoca itself, you’ll be able to stay right in the midst of this countryside, with the fields, hills and forests literally outside your door.
Follow the River Avoca, or the R752 south out of Avoca and you’ll quickly come to Woodenbridge, an area of forests and the meeting point of the rivers Avoca and Aughrim. Book a room in a hotel or lodge here and you’ll not only be adjacent to unspoiled countryside, you’ll also be right next door to Woodenbridge Golf Club. Visitors are welcome to play here, taking on 18 holes renowned for a combination of golfing toughness and aesthetic appeal.
Travel to the north of Avoca and you’ll discover the hotels and bed and breakfasts clustered around the Wicklow coast. Here you’ll find rooms in inns, lodges and hostels which are within earshot of the waves hitting the land, yet also close enough to Avoca to provide an excellent base for exploring the village and its environs.
