Blake Lively is as obsessed with the wonder of Avoca as the rest of us; FYI

‘It’s just heaven.’

STUCK FOR SOMEWHERE to bring a visitor? Avoca. Looking for a present for your mam? Avoca. Want to know what Blake Lively is obsessed with? Avoca.

In a recent interview with the 31-year-old actress announced that her role in The Rhythm Section coincided with a newfound love for a place many of us have ‘grammed while rubbing our wholesome Sunday activities in the faces of everyone online.

Discussing the time she spent in Ireland while shooting the film, which was set in Dublin, the mother-of-two waxed lyrical about the little piece of ‘heaven’ located in the Garden of Ireland.

“Oh my God can we talk about Avoca, have you guys been to Avoca?” she asked.

Doing her bit for anyone yet to acquaint themselves with the place, she continued:

You have to go to Ireland just to go to Avoca, it’s just heaven. How it’s described in the bible is inaccurate, heaven is what Avoca is.

OK, but what are we likely to find there, Blake?

It’s just handweavers and amazing pastries and it’s just heaven. Everybody’s gonna be like ‘she’s disgracing the bible’ – I was joking world.

And it’s not just Avoca she’s obsessed with, it’s Ireland as a whole. In fact, she’s more than happy to make it her second home.

Well if everybody goes and sees Rhythm Section in theatres in February then we will have to make a few more, there is about five books so it will be our second home – Dublin will be my second home.

Fair enough.
