One-time home of the Earls of Dunraven, Adare Manor and its magnificent estate is one the west of Ireland’s premier luxury resorts. The neo-Gothic mansion house was constructed during the 1860s and first began operating as hotel during the 1980s. It was the estate’s acquisition by racehorse owner JP McManus that truly transformed Adare Manor into the sought-after venue it is today, with a 70 million Euro investment making the venue dazzle both inside and out.
Nods to the prestigious heritage of the mansion house remain through traditional features such as intricate stained glass, original heraldry and high-quality finishes in gold leaf, velvet and brocade. All modern creature comforts prevail, however, in the collection of spacious and inviting rooms and suites.
Golf is an obvious attraction for many visiting Adare Manor, its award-winning Tom Fazio designed course already drawing discerning golfers in their droves (only to be accelerated when the course hosts the Ryder Cup in 2027). Nevertheless, the rolling, emerald-green surroundings mean there is far more to the resort than just golf. The wider estate comprises over 800 lush acres which include French-style parterre gardens, woodland walks and a treasure hunt trail. The friendly concierge team can arrange activities such as cycling, fishing, falconry and gun dog displays to assist you further immerse yourself into life on the estate, while those seeking to burn off some excess energy can take advantage of the world-class fitness facilities on offer at The Padel Club. To slow the pace, some time in the exquisite spa allows for complete rejuvenation in a setting surrounded by woodland.
