Townhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
centuries, the hill where Avon Rí Self Catering Holiday Homes in Wicklow are located looked out over a valley created by the Liffey and The King's River. We have taken our name from the latter, and Avon Rí now looks out over the Blessington Lakes – a reservoir created in 1944 by the damming and flooding of the valley. We found it to be such a beautiful setting and motivating location we decided to create something special. A resort of the highest standards that would encourage people to visit the area and stay a while to enjoy the landscape, partake in activities on the lake and in the countryside, and then be able to relax afterwards in a welcoming, familiar atmosphere with ideal Accommodation in County Wicklow.
Our holiday homes are designed to make you feel more at home than you ever can in a self catering hotel – free to 'make yourself at home' in spacious, light-filled rooms, perfect for family and friends to really enjoy a carefree break.
On the other hand, our clubhouse aims to bring you all the self-contained pampering of a five-star hotel: fine restaurant, Bar, gym, pool, Jacuzzi (looking out over the lake), sauna and steam room
The townhouses accommodate up to six people each and are equipped to a very high standard, with all the appliances of a private home (cable TV, washing machine, cooker, microwave and dishwasher) to make sure guests have everything they need for their stay while at Avon Rí. Each townhouse is extremely spacious and has been plushly furnished throughout.
Avon Rí main building consists of the main reception lobby, Il lago restaurant (with deck overlooking Blessington and the Wicklow Countryside), the swimming pool facilities, and the reception for all the outdoor activities. Upstairs are the Library Bar, the gym room, and a number of function and meeting rooms for occasions and events of all types.
