About
Welcome to Avalon...'A Restaurant for Grown-Ups' daring to be different in Dublin 4 with Irish fusion cooking, combining classic with contemporary and extraordinary hand-picked wines...we really like Fish too! Located in the heart of Donnybrook Village, above Donnybrook Fair, a stone's throw from Dublin City Centre. Top service is no.1 priority, whilst Food & Wine take centre stage in our stylish surrounds.
