Adare Manor

Overlooking the banks of the River Maigue and surrounded by the lush natural beauty of County Limerick’s heartlands, Adare Manor offers a breath-taking welcome to guests from around the world. Beginning in the spring of 2016 and continuing through autumn of 2017, the house and grounds of the estate, which dates back to 1832, are undergoing an extensive refurbishment, restoration and expansion.

This visionary reimagining of one of Ireland’s most evocative and spellbinding 5-star castle hotels achieves a perfect balance of old and new. Heritage craftsmen are overseeing the meticulous upgrade and restoration of internal finishes, while all guest rooms and public areas are receiving extensive renovation and refurbishment. A new wing of the manor will bring the total room count to 104 bedrooms, while a spectacular new ballroom will have the capacity to welcome 350 people for events. A new state-of-the-art spa, pool and relaxation area, boardroom and cinema will add the finishing touches to Ireland’s premier destination estate. 

The 840 acres of Adare Manor’s beautiful estate include walled gardens, walking trails and pristine parklands. Enhanced through loving restoration and landscaping, they create a magical backdrop for a huge range of exciting on-site activities, including an 18 hole championship golf course, Spa treatments by La Mer, Falconry, Archery, Clay pigeon shooting, Segway activities, Bicycle hire, Fishing on the River Maigue, Historical tours, and Walking and running trails. World-renowned golf course architect Tom Fazio has been tasked with overseeing the development of an incredible new golf course. The new course will feature cutting-edge SubAir technology and once completed it will be one of the best designed and finest maintained golf courses in Europe. 

The manor sits at the heart of beautiful Adare village, where traditional thatched cottages and ancient stone walls preserve the spirit of an unspoiled Ireland. Wander down the main street to experience the antique and craft shops, smart boutiques and restaurants. Pause in a cosy pub for a well-earned pint. Take some time to explore the mysterious ruins and churches which surround the village and whisper of its rich history.
