Welcome to Avoca, an Irish, family-run business that is one of the oldest surviving manufacturers in the world, home to some of Ireland’s best-loved cafés and retail.
Once upon a time there was a Mill in the picturesque village of Avoca, County Wicklow. It was set up in 1723 as a co-operative where farmers could spin and weave their wool. Today, Avoca has grown into one of Ireland’s most loved brands producing signature throws and blankets, using natural yarns like lamb’s wool, cashmere, mohair and angora.
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.
