The Meetings B&B Information


The Meetings is a welcoming family-run establishment providing a Wicklow Craft Gallery, Bar, Lounge, Entertainment and Bed & Breakfast accommodation, situated in the heart of Avoca in Co. Wicklow. Overlooking the celebrated Meeting of the Waters, the property enjoys panoramic views of the converging waters of the Avonbeg and Avonmore rivers, and of the surrounding countryside. Guests have access to a outside deck area overlooking The Meeting of the Waters. A great facility to relax and observe the waters flow by and listen to the beautiful sound of the flowing waters. Described by many guests as one of the most beautiful locations in the world and extremely peaceful and relaxing. Convenient to Glendalough, Clara Lara fun park, hidden valley in Rathdrum and their Christmas Island festivities, and Avondale House. A great location for those attending weddings in Brooklodge Aughrim, Woodenbridge hotel or Clonwilliam House. All within 20 minute drive.

The Meetings

Thomas Moore wrote his Poem the Meeting of the Waters in the early 1800s. This poem was then set to the music of a traditional tune and was published as part of Moore's Melodies. The Meetings has been a destination for tourists for nearly 200 years attracting those who want to immerse themselves in nature. We are essentially surrounded by trees and rivers situated more or less half way between the towns of Rathdrum and Avoca. A building of various types has existed on the site since Thomas Moore's time and currently consists of a relaxed Bar/Lounge with a B&B onsite.

The Meetings B&B has been welcoming guests since February 2000
