Adare Manor Hotel Voted 4th Best Golf Resort.
Adare Manor borrows it’s name from the nearby village of Adare complete with it’s delightful thatched roof cottages, lively pubs, and antique shops. The Manor “structurally” as it exists today was not begun until 1832. The Second Earl of Dunraven and his wife, Lady Caroline Wyndham, were living in a Georgian house built in the 1720’s by Valentine Quin, grandfather of the first Earl. But Lord Dunraven, crippled with gout, was unable to participate in the usual activities of a landed gentleman of leisure, so Lady Caroline devised the idea of a new manor house to give him something important to do. As it turned out, it was a magnificent suggestion: the building of the house provided labour for the surrounding villagers during the terrible potato famine that devastated the country during the mid-19th century. Though Lady Caroline went to great lengths to establish the myth that Adare Manor was planned entirely by her husband without an architect, it is fairly certain today that much of the design work was completed by James Pain who, along with his brother George Richard, had been commissioned to design numerous public buildings and country homes. The actual construction was supervised by James Connolly, a local mason, until his death in 1852
The 5 star hotel is housed in an impressive Manor House of which there are 62 bedrooms. The Clubhouse area is just a three minute walk from the Manor House and it consists of 11 Clubhouse Bedrooms. We have 22 two and four bedroom Townhouses adjacent to the Clubhouse. The 46 luxurious three bedroomed Villas are located a 15 minute walk from the main Manor House and a 10 minute walk from the Carriagehouse.
Dining in the Manor Oakroom Restaurant is a culinary rite of passage, focusing on the very best in haute cuisine complemented each night by the finest vintage from our extensive cellar. Truly, one of life’s great pleasures, every stay in Adare Manor should include a meal with family and friends in the decadently stylish Oakroom Restaurant.
A pre-dinner drink in the elegant and welcoming Drawing Room or in the adjoining Cocktail Bar is highly recommended and the post-dinner tradition of a pint or aperitif in the Tack Room Pub is a wonderful way to conclude a wonderful dining experience.
If you fancy an alternative to the sophistication of the fine dining experience in the Oakroom, our extremely popular Carriagehouse Restaurant situated in the Clubhouse is only a three minute walk from the Manor House. The Carriagehouse Restaurant enjoys a more relaxed and laid -back atmosphere where one can enjoy a hearty and wholesome meal followed by a night cap or two in the homely clubhouse bar. During the summer months our garden patio allows you an idyllic view of setting sun as another night closes in your memorable stay.

The Six Best Places to Get Married in Ireland by L Maher
The Six Best Places for an Irish Wedding as anyone who just got married will attest to, all wedding ceremonies are a beautiful and magical occasion, whether in a little chapel in Las Vegas or on a beach in Maui. There is something special, however, about an Irish Celtic wedding. It could be the beautiful, soft Celtic light that silhouettes the bride, or the sound of a warm, crackling fire in an ancient castle, but it is definitely unique. Adare Manor, once the hunting retreat of an English gentleman, is breathtaking, and tops our poll. The Manor’s staff, unpretentious yet thoughtful, are of the highest quality. Having dinner in the candlelit great hall is an amazing experience in itself. As a wedding site, it is without equal.
Adare Manor is unique amongst five star resorts in that we pay equal attention to the style in which we maintain our surroundings and the substance of the amenities we offer our guests. While history and spectacular scenery abound, we also offer guests that one on one treatment that helps distinguish a vacation from a stay at a five star resort to the making of five star memories. Whether your activity of choice is equestrian, fishing, golfing, or just taking in the breathtaking scenery on offer, our team will make ensure your wish becomes a reality.
Fishing has long been a staple favourite of Manor guests and that is no surprise given the River Maigue, which is recognised as one of Ireland’s best Trout River, runs through the estate. For those who wish to join the equestrian set and to join in the sport of Kings, the Manor can arrange the finest facilities and instruction for riders of all ages from highly qualified instructors.
During the summer months, a range of additional activities are available such as: Wine & Whiskey Tasting, Cookery Demonstrations, Historical Tours and Heritage Walks around the grounds.
From sunrise to sunset, we offer our guests a wide array of stylish and sophisticated options that will make your visit a life long memory.
