myself and my family took advantage of the yearly pass for 30 euro which is the best value we came across in 2012. it not only gets you all year access to avondale but to all of coillte forest parks. For this meagre sum we had walks in deep woodlands, by a river with free parking and a naturel made childrens playground. (all made from wood) we dining in the kitchen cafe before our house tour and were greeted by friendly staff who made kids and parents feel welcome. we then went on a tour of the house with our guide jean(later found out she is the manager) answered all questions with a smile and an abundance of history. in the current climate you wont get better value for money (not only was charles parnell born here but it is the home of irish forestry)
