Avoca (Irish: Abhóca, formerly Abhainn Mhór, meaning "the great river") is a small town near Arklow, in County Wicklow, Ireland. It is situated on the River Avoca.
The Avoca area has been associated with its famous copper mines for many years and the valley has been immortalised by Thomas Moore in the famous song The Meeting of the Waters. You can stop off here and then visit the Meetings Pub and restaurant or craft shop. Traditional music and Ceili bands are on show throughout the year.
Moving through the mining landscape dotted with mine chimneystacks and the Vale of Avoca's copper coloured river, you will reach the village of Avoca.
Avoca Village is home to Irelands oldest handweaving mill and location for many films the most famous being the BBC series "Ballykissangel".
The Vale of Avoca is a beautiful vale set in the heart of the garden of Ireland and stretches from the Meetings of the Waters to Glenart near Woodenbridge.
Avoca is the ideal base for touring the East and South East coast of Ireland - you can take a day trip to Dublin by rail from Arklow or Rathdrum and avoid the hassle of parking and driving in Dublin.
At Rockfield you can walk through the beautiful gardens or spend time relaxing on the large patio overlooking the beautiful views of the vale of Avoca.
You can enjoy a full Irish breakfast while overlooking the breath-taking views of the surrounding countryside and listening to the trickle of water from the fountain nearby.
