“A nice experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

I had such a nice pleasant experience today that I feel it should be share with fellow travellers.

Myself, my son along with my dog took the Blessington Lakeside 1 walk this morning it was our first time to do this walk, the sun shinning , the vivid colours of the autumn leaves on the ground, the ripples on the lake you wouldn't want to be anywhere else in the world.

The Piece de resistance came at the end of our walk since we had parked the car at the "Avon Ri "Hotel car park we decided to go in and treat ourselves to lunch. What a pleasant experience that was from start to finish. We had a lovely seat by the window with spectacular views over the lake. The customer service was excellent and food to die for. I had the scampi in a light batter it was beautifully presented and yes they were fresh ( not frozen) , succulent with fat chips and a side salad. My son had battered cod, mushy peas also excellent. Over all we had a lovely day out and will go back.

Just came back from my stay at the Avon ri, we had a fabulous time, was impressed with the lovely clean house. Everyone was very friendly. We enjoyed the lovely lake walks and coming back to a nice cosy house which was warm and comfortable.

my friends and i stayed for a long weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it! Our house had a gorgeous view, with immaculate rooms and a kitchen with a welcoming tray with tea and coffee waiting for us. When we arrived the staff was very accommodating helping us with all our needs, had a brilliant time with the activity team! Would highly recommend for a fun holiday away with family and friends.

We did not stay in hotel, we had organised a Segway tour through hotel. Hotel from a walk round seemed really nice and was busy. The segway tour was amazing and highly recommended and we found tour guides were very nice and knew a lot about area
