Dating back before the time of the Norman Conquest this story book village owes its appearance to the 3rd Earl of Dunraven who, in the 1830s when other landlords were furiously replacing thatch with slate went against the trend and rebuilt Adare with larger thatched houses.
Adare is the ideal base to explore many wonderful sights and famous landmarks. You could take a daytrip to include Bunratty Castle, the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher – we will even provide a picnic lunch. Head south towards Blarney Castle and Cork city and harbour. Spend the day in Killarney and the wonderful Muckross Park and still be back in time for supper.
Stay in the local area and visit the Hunt Museum, King John’s Castle and the University Concert Hall. The Dunraven Arms is also one of the most luxurious hotels near Thomond Park just a 20 minute drive away ideal for attending events.
There is a host of activities for all in Adare, local attractions in the area include, Limerick Racecourse, Fishing, Adare Heritage Centre, Curraghchase Forest Park, Bunratty Castle, The Hunt Museum and Foynes Flying Boat Museum.
