Built on the banks of the Avoca River from where it used to draw its power, you’ll find a large Avoca Store and Café and a working handweaving mill. The oldest surviving working mill in Ireland today, dates from 1723. There are tours of the mills and it is well worth a visit. The original whitewashed buildings of the old mill now house the store which carries an extensive selection of Avoca favourites – clothing, soft furnishing, gifts, food from the Avoca Pantry range and, as with all our shops, much more besides. And of course, a cafe too, which is famous for its delicious lunches and home baking. Bus and Tour Parties can also book The Hay Loft, a lovely bright dining room specifically held for larger groups.
