Avoca's Hike Life & Brunch with Roz Purcell

We are so excited to announce that we will be collaborating with the fabulous Roz Purcell in hosting a Hike Life event! In celebration of her new cookbook, 'No Fuss Vegan', we're offering the opportunity to enjoy a fantastic day of hiking and brunching with the lady herself. 

Taking place on Saturday 1st February, participating adventure-seekers will meet at 8am to embark on a beginner-friendly hike of The Sugar Loaf Mountain here in Co. Wicklow. After we've all worked up and appetite and enjoyed the beautiful scenery and fresh air, we will return to Avoca Kilmacanoge. There, we will enjoy a delicious sharing-style brunch at the Fern House from 9.30am - 11.30am. What better way to start a Saturday morning?!

What's more, your ticket to this event will also include a signed copy of Roz's new book, 'No Fuss Vegan', so you can learn how to introduce more plant-based recipes into your life - perfect for busy people who want to eat more vegetables. The third cookbook in her repertoire, Roz champions healthy recipes, tips on how to create a happy relationship with your body and much more. Her Hike Life programme has been a huge success, offering open hiking events around the country to the public. Her childhood on her parents' farm — surrounded by nature and forever in the kitchen with her grandmother, cooking with local ingredients — still underpins her approach to her health: cooking delicious food that is good for you has never been a chore; it's just a way of life.

Tickets to this event are €35, and include a guided group hike with Roz, brunch at the Fern House, and a signed copy of the cookbook. Please note, you will need to wear hiking boots or walking shoes, raingear in case of temperamental weather, and SPF - even if it's not sunny! It is also advisable to bring some water with you as well as a spare pair of socks/clothes/shoes for after.

We hike to see you there!

*Please note - The Fern House will be closed to the public during breakfast on Sat 1st Feb in order to host this event.
