From its early roots as a small tea and coffee station selling home baking in the corner of one of its shops, Avoca has grown into one of Ireland’s most loved food brands.
The Avoca Terrace Café in Powerscourt offers an amazing setting for you to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee with friends and family next to what is surely one of the most dramatic vistas in Ireland. The café boasts tall windows and French doors leading out onto an expansive garden terrace with a simply breath-talking panorama of the gardens against the backdrop of the famous Sugarloaf Mountain.
The food at the Terrace Café is homemade and of excellent quality which is why people return here time and again. Everyone has their favourite dish on the Avoca menu, but there are always plenty of new options to try if you are feeling adventurous!
Enjoy freshly-made salads, soups and gourmet sandwiches as well as a wide selection of meals including chicken and broccoli crumble, luxury fish pie and spinach, pine nut and brie quiche. For those with a sweet tooth, mouth-watering desserts such as strawberry meringue roulade, lemon tart and double chocolate cheesecake will make choosing just one all the more difficult!
The Terrace Café is open year-round and seats 160 including outdoor seating and is the perfect venue for tour groups, family outings and friendly catch-ups.
In the interest of public safety and the absolute requirement for social distancing, we have decided to close the Estate, including the House, Gardens, River Walk and Waterfall, until further notice.
We have given the situation a great deal of thought and we understand that our visitors will be disappointed by this and we apologise for the inconvenience it may cause, particularly when being outside in nature is beneficial for mental and physical health.
At this time, we all have a social responsibility, including Powerscourt Estate, to minimise any harm to our friends, colleagues, and families. We will be reviewing this situation on an ongoing basis. Please keep an eye on the News Section of our website and social media for updates.
Thank you for your understanding and patience and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Estate before not too long. We hope you and your families are keeping safe.
