This was my first experience with Avoca. It is very complete because you can find almost everything here, from clothes, to coffee. Everything is first quality. very nice place where you find things that cannot find easily elsewhere. Eating here is pleasant, too.

There is so much to do at the castle, we were surprised and spent the whole day there. Suitable for all ages I think it is probably used by lots of local people as well as visitors. Visit the shop and have lunch there. All...More

If it's a special occasion do call in before or phone ahead as they do sometimes reserve tables depending on the time of day. Always worth checking with them! Orla is one of the managers at the moment.

They always have a few coeliac options, one soup is always coeliac friendly and they generally can make up any sandwiches on gluten free bread. They have lots of cakes and sweet treats for coeliacs too! Just ask the staff
