Everything at Avon Ri was perfect for my Hen Party. The staff were so pleasant and accommodating to all of us (There was over 30). The houses were ideal for having our own space to chill out in a house on the Friday night. The food on both nights was gorgeous with a lovely private room on Saturday for our...

A group of us girls went to the self catering houses of Avon Ri a few months ago - and we were so impressed! The houses were fantastic! We booked 3 houses to hold 18 people. Each house had 3 rooms - two doubles and one twin was in our house so I presume the others were the same? Two...

I was a bit dubious after reading some comments but I have to say I was totally surprised. Staff were certainly friendly, food was fab and houses while could do with some TLC were very adequate for a one night stay. The scenery is second to none and to have your wedding outside in front of the beautiful lakes is...

We had popped in for a drink in the bar one Sunday with family living in Dublin , and been impressed with the lake view and decided to treat our family to a short relaxing break here, later in the year. We arrived a couple of days earlier from the UK and were shocked at the state of the house!...

The Full Irish breakfast was so fresh and came as a huge portion, certainly good value for money! I ordered the: goats cheese,sundried tomato, mushroom and spinach omelette...it was...

I had my sisters hens here over the weekend and to say I'm disappointed is an understatement. The only good thing about the day was the activities and how lovly the girl that was teaching us was. We called and asked for corkage for bottles for the toast and was told no. Which is fine, when arriving then for dinner...

This is such a good place to stay if you love the outdoors, walking all that kinds of stuff there is so much to do there is the greenway trail connected to the accommodation with walks in all different direction from it. It offers great activities and the facilities are free for guests like the gym and swimming pool. The...

Normally when you go away the one thing you want and expect is cleanliness. Considering it rates itself as a 4* resort our experience was more like 2* The hotel itself is fine and staff were friendly and helpful however some nights it was closed before 9pm at night and with the next nearest place to go being in the...
