Whether it's called Ovoca or Avoca or even Ballykissangel the little village remains a charming and beautiful place in the heart of Co. Wicklow. Mr. French chose a nice quiet time to visit with traffic down to the minimum, just Neddy and his driver as a little bit of local colour. I brought some American visitors there once who wanted to see Ballykissangel and they had binge watched the entire series several times. For them the visit was a highlight!
