'Avoca is heaven': Turns out Blake Lively LOVED living in Dublin

She wasn't been a resident that long but it looks like Blake Lively is already making long-term plans to stay in Ireland.

The actress lived in Dalkey in Dublin with her husband Ryan Reynolds and their daughters James, three, and Inez, one, while she filmed thriller The Rhythm Section.


The film, also starring Jude Law, tells the story of an assassin who loses her entire family in a plane crash.

Blake is a known foodie so it's no surprise that her favourite thing about life in Dublin was County Wicklow retailer and café Avoca.


She and her family came across it after a day trip to Powerscourt in Wicklow, she told Independent.ie.

"Oh my God have you been to Avoca? You have to visit Ireland just to go to Avoca.”

“Heaven how it’s described in the bible is inaccurate. Heaven is what Avoca is. It’s handweavers & amazing pastries - it is heaven.

"Everybody is going to be, ‘She’s disgracing the bible’ - I was joking but Avoca is so good.”

Blake also joked that she could end up buying a house in Dublin if the film goes well when it's released early next year.

“There’s about five books so Ireland will be our second home. Dublin will be my second home."
