Gallery, Adare Manor, Co. Limerick
After temporarily closing its doors to undertake its largest refurbishment in 25 years, Adare Manor’s hiatus has come to an end and the five-star castle hotel has reopened to begin a glorious new chapter in its history.
Originally founded by the Earl of Dunraven, his motto “quae sursum volo videre – what is heavenly I would see” has guided the process, which began in March of 2016. Architects, craftsmen and designers have worked together to ready Adare Manor for its impending relaunch.
Internal finishes have been refined with stone treated and wood lovingly turned. The interior design has been reimagined, technology has been subtly integrated and luxury enriched at every turn.
As part of transformation, facilities will include a ballroom to hold up to 350 patrons, a state-of-the-art corporate boardroom as well as a new 40-bedroom wing. Improvements to entertainment in the manor have also been introduced with a new spa and pool, an on-site cinema and an activity centre which will include falconry and archery.
The guests’ first taste of this castle hotel’s grandeur will be the soaring ceilings, vaulted arches and enormous windows of the Great Hall Reception. After a warm welcome from staff, guests can relax around the hearth in the grandiose surroundings.
A celebrity hotspot
The golf clubhouse which has previously enticed guests such as Tiger Woods, has also undergone a complete transformation with the aim of creating "one of the finest Parkland courses in Europe".
The 840-acre estate was bought in 2015 by JP McManus, his wife Noreen and the McManus family for a reported €30 million.
Previous celebrity guests have included Bill Clinton, Hugh Grant and Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones.
