Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
Beautiful resort, friendly staff and great food but no availability for our entire time of desired stay. After we checked out we find out our unit was not rented for additional four days. I’m not clear on why they would do that.

Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
The pool was out of service during our stay. Also, we were unable to take advantage of any water activities due to a business meeting that was taking place there - all the kayaks and other activities were booked by the business group. Very disappointed about this.

Decent stay near Dublin
My family of five was comfortable at Avon Ri. They have restricted check-in and check-out times, though, so make sure you plan ahead. The space was generally clean and comfortable although the trash in our kitchen had not been removed from the previous guest. It was hard to figure out how to turn on the hot water heater. It was really nice that all bedrooms had a bathroom! It was good value for a family stay outside of Dublin and downtown Blessington is quaint.

House was clean and well equipped. We arrived on a very cold day would of been nice if the heating had of been turned on before we arrived as house was very cold and took about an hour to heat up, that said once heated it was comfortable.
