Pamper yourself at Adare Manor

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 6, 2005

Do yourself a favor and cough up the bucks to stay here at least one night. I know many VT'ers pride themselves on traveling cheap and I'm a great admirer of the practice - but Lordy what a great experience.

After two weeks on the road and staying at a variety of B&Bs, our last night in Ireland was at the Adare Manor (11/2008). A real manor house set on a sprawling 840 acres that include the world class Adare Golf Course. It has been voted Ireland's leading hotel in the World Travel Awards. As soon as you pull up to front door you know you are in for a special treat. A doorman rushes out to open your door and ensure you are expected. You are then escorted into the entry hall which is huge and tastefully decorated with armor and tapestries. A brief discussion about dinner reservations and you are escorted to your room. After 2 weeks of B&Bs the rooms seemed huge. The bathroom alone was the size of most of the B&Bs we had been in.

We were given a ground floor room overlooking the river and golf course opposite. We ended not eating dinner in the dining room but opted for a pub in the village of Adare - weren't quite ready to go all in on the high life. But we did have lunch and breakfast there. Both were great meals.

The bar area is very nicley laid out in what was once the drawing living room with great service. An elegant yet intimate setting. It was here that I was introduced to Black Jameson Irish Whisky - which is not available in the US. My cousin and her husband drove down from Limerick to join us for drinks.

The golf course was laid out by Robert Trent Jones Sr. and has been the site of the Irish open several times in the past few years. The greens fees are not for the faint of heart.

A great experience and we are sure to return!

Update - we did return (11/2009) and it was a good as we remembered! And the rooms are huge - even if you haven't been doing B&B's for two weeks as we had on our previous visit.

Found a cheaper way of staying here also. If you are using one of those package fly/drive/b&b deals that are so cheap and popular these days (we sure like them) you can upgrade one of your B&B coupons to a night at Adare for 100 euros.

Unique Quality: The accomodations are outstanding but be sure to leave time to stroll the grounds. And bring your swim suit - the indoor pool is large, warm, and overlooks the river.....

And the golf course is as good as it looks. The finest (and hardest) I've played in Ireland (not that I've played that many). A links 18-hole, I've heard it is a favorite of Tiger Woods to stay sharp between tournements. The ruins of an abby are right in the middle of the course and the river is very scenic.

Directions: Just on the outskirts of the village Adare as you aproach from Limerick. About 1 hour from Shannon Airport
