Top 100 Attractions Review

We have featured a small number of Avoca sites in this Top 100 Attractions in Ireland book simply because they are the epitome of Irish life. Started off in the seventies, but on a site that has a 290 year history, young solicitor Donald Pratt and his teacher wife Hillary took a massive gamble that only an Irishman could pull off. With pure determination and belief in his products he set out to bring back a past tradition into a modern age. This gamble paid off which now sees Avoca sites all over the country. Rathcoole for that matter is another one of their popular sites. Avoca Rathcoole sees thousands of visitors through its doors every month, and although you may pay a bit more than average places in the area you get incredible value for money not only with their food, but their shop products to. A pure delight!

Avoca Rathcoole

Attraction

Avoca Rathcoole

Our Rathcoole store is on the N7 Naas Road just beyond Citywest on the western side of Dublin. Modern, airy and colourful with lots of shopping and two exciting cafés with spacious terraces, Avoca Rathcoole has become a landmark destination. It's been voted Retail Store of the Year in Ireland.

Featuring all the familiar Avoca offerings: designer fashion and interesting gifts, soft furnishings and homewares, kidswear and toys, our Rathcoole store also a fabulous new Food Market too. With an award-winning artisan butchers, sushi bar, juices & yoghurts, rotisserie chicken, as well as fresh baking and other yummy Take-out food., it's possibly the finest food offering in Ireland in one place.

There are two lovely, but different Avoca Cafés here too: one self-service, The Birdcage Café; and The Egg Café (see menu below) - with full table service which takes bookings. Both open out onto hanging terraces boasting views across rolling hills and sheltered under glazed awnings.

And we've a charming boutique garden centre with plants, outdoor furniture and gardening gifts.

There's also a Cheese Room & Charcuterie in its own purpose-built cilmate-controlled space and a Wine Shop featuring a fine selection from smaller independent artisan wine makers. And you'll find our Take-out Catering menu for download here.

Light-filled, with tall windows looking out onto a walled courtyard garden, Avoca Rathcoole has extensive landscaped car parking.
