Description on Avoca Village:
The birthplace of the Avoca experience, and the origin of our family company name, Avoca Handweavers, this is a famous tourist destination, as well as a long time favourite among the Dublin and Wicklow communities. Built on the banks of the Avoca River from where it used to draw its power, you'll find a large Avoca store and cafe, and a working handweaving mill.
The mill itself dates from 1723, and is said to be the oldest extant manufacturer in Ireland.
