Explore in July

This month, we’re encouraging you to Explore in July, and are delighted to begin our new campaign, #avocaexperience.

With things slowly beginning to open up again, we’re looking forward to getting out and exploring this beautiful island we call home. From Summer staycations and outdoor adventures to finding something new on your doorstep, there is so much to explore and enjoy in Ireland this Summer.

At Avoca, we’re lucky enough to have many of our locations in some of Ireland’s most spectacular and scenic locations. From our Moll’s Gap store in the Ring of Kerry to our Avoca store and café at the beautiful Powerscourt Estate, and from our exciting city centre locations to our cafés in tranquil gardens, there’s something for everyone to explore!

This July, we’ll be showcasing some of our wonderful locations so you can explore a little more of the wonderful world of Avoca. Maybe you’ll include a few Avoca stops on your Summer staycation, or perhaps you’ll plan a picnic in the grounds of one of our locations. Maybe you’ll take a trip to an Avoca café you haven't visited before, or stop by our gardens at Mount Usher or Kilmacanoge for a wander. Whatever you decide, there’s lots to explore at Avoca.

Each week, we will be spotlighting a different Avoca location on @avocaireland for you to discover:

Our Moll’s Gap location is a spectacular spot to stop and enjoy the scenery on a journey around the Ring of Kerry. Set high on a rocky ridge, our store overlooks mountains and lush countryside, with Ireland’s highest mountain, Carrauntoohill, to one side, and the Gap of Dunloe to the other. Browse the goods in the store, or enjoy a treat in the café while taking in the stunning view.
