Formerly the family seat of the second Earl of Dunraven, Adare Manor is an 18th century castle turned deluxe resort hotel within the lush heartlands of County Limerick. Rooted in history and advanced in luxury, the Manor is an architectural marvel of towers, turrets, and ornamentation, replete with all of the extravagant details reflective of the original owners’ penchant for taste and elegance.
The individually stylized rooms of Adare Manor still hint at the loving care of Lord and Lady Dunraven from the 1800s, from the glimmering chandeliers and original fireplaces of the sitting rooms, to the plush furnishings and carved headboards of the bedrooms. While the bedrooms and adjoining bathrooms still contain the classic grandeur of the historic home, they have also been discretely updated with all of the modern accouterments for the 21st century traveler. Between the luxurious Deluxe Rooms, the exclusive Staterooms, and the original quarters of Lady Caroline Wyndham herself, guests have multiple options from which to choose for a private stay. Those looking for a more personal home-away-from-home experience may opt for one of the property’s self-catering Adare Manor villas and townhouses situated in the heart of the estate.
The variety of menus and vast selection of wines at Adare Manor are worthy of any Lord or Lady. The Oakroom Restaurant’s signature eight-course tasting menu takes a contemporary Irish approach to classic dishes of turbot, foie gras, and partridge, while the Tack Room downstairs offers a range of traditional Irish beers amid live piano music and friendly pub chatter. For a more intimate dining experience, take Afternoon Tea in the drawing room, reserve the Library for a romantic dinner, or plan a private dinner party in The Minstrels’ Gallery, the second largest banqueting hall outfitted in 17th century Flemish choir stalls and wainscot paneling.
Steeped in history and surrounded by medieval ruins, Adare Manor’s 840-acre estate is home to sweeping parklands, cultivated gardens, winding woodlands, an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Senior, and the River Maigue, one of Ireland’s best trout rivers. The entire grounds are free for guests to explore and allow for activities combining old-world pursuits with modern instruction, such as Irish Whisky tastings, archery, falconry, skeet shooting, and horseback riding. Unwind after a round of golf at the Carriage House Restaurant and adjacent Clubhouse Bar, where pints of Guiness and Bistro-style fare overflow, or retreat to the Lavendar Cottage luxury spa where Elemis trained therapists provide a full spectrum of body treatments, massages, and wraps. The thatched-roof town of Adare is also close at hand for those who wish to share in a pint with the charming locals.Request Information
