In for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. We were not staying here. The location is truly magnificent with spectacular views of the lake. Good for children to visit too as there is a mini animal farm outside. That's where the positives of this visit ends. It was our experience that there was a shocking lack of training or experience amongst... More

Stayed in a very spacious house. The house could do with a lick of paint and some.....but did the job for us as we got a great deal on our 3 nights. €240. If I had paid more, I don think I would have been too happy with standard of house. Location was lovely, we hired bikes one day and... More

In for lunch....... Service was shockingly slow, took food order wrong , food was ok ( but nothing to write home about) but it was the attitude of the staff which I found most alarming. Considering we heavily rely on our friendly hospitality reputation it was the manner at which some of the staff were openly bad mouthing one of... More

Just spent a week in the holiday homes in Avon Ri. We purchased through Supervalu getaway breaks and when we checked in we were hit with an extra €70 charge for utilities which they told me was in the terms and conditions but I can't find it. The houses are ok, cleanish but in need of redecorating, reasonably equipped and... More

We stayed at Avon Ri for the 2nd visit to family in Blessington. We arrived early and the staff were incredibly helpful in getting out accommodation ready as quickly as possible. We were given no.42, immaculately clean but a little tired in comparison to last years house. But you don't go on holiday to sit indoors. We had drinks and... More

The website pictures are very misleading!! The house was old and run down, the carpets were stained, the wood floor had water damage, there were holes in the wall, some had been patched but never painted over, the beds were hard, the hot water didn't work after the first day, the house smelled like mildew, when you opened the oven...

My fiancé and myself stayed in the Avon Ri as part of a family wedding in May 2016. From the moment we got to the place we had a very warm and welcome feeling. All staff were lovely and were bending over backwards to ensure that the wedding was great fun and very family friendly. The main building itself has... More

We had a lovely time at Avon Ri. The houses were spacious, modern and warm. Lovely bar area and stunning views. Was disappointed that everything extra was charged for, even down to the hairdryer. The playground was very basic with a medium zip wire and rope course which was extra if the kids wanted to use them. Pool was small... More
