Welcome to Adare Manor
Set on 840 acres of beautiful estate, a stay at the Gothic masterpiece that is Adare Manor always feels incredibly special. It’s a particularly exciting time, as the building has just undergone a massive refurbishment, making it one of Ireland’s most opulent accommodation options. Guests can now enjoy a new 40-bedroom wing, ballroom, spa and pool, cinema and activity centre.
What’s more, Director of Business Development Anita Higgins and her team are on hand to go the extra mile in ensuring delegates have an absolutely unforgettable experience during their stay.
“The welcome is key”, she begins. “We’ll organise for horses and hounds to greet groups at the gate, and travel with the coaches up the long drive to the front door. There are lots of photo opportunities; people love it.”
During their stay, she continues, it’s all about visitors immersing themselves in Irish culture. “When we talk about authentic”, she says, “it’s all about experiential, with a little bit of education. For dinner, we’ll have live cooking stations showcasing local food produce, and we’ll blend an entertainment element into that.
"That could be a bodhrán [Irish drum] maker, wool producer, chair weaver or craft poitín maker – they become part of the overall experience. People can interact with them, see the types of things we make here in Ireland, and – in the case of the bodhrán – even learn to play!”
