Renovations Continue at the Adare Manor Hotel


By: Five Star Alliance

Adare Manor Hotel & Golf Resort is set on a magnificent 840 acre estate in the heart of the picturesque village of Adare, Co. Limerick featuring sweeping parklands, formal French gardens, magnificent mature trees and the River Maigue, one of Ireland's finest trout rivers. As of January 2016, the hotel closed their doors for approximately 18 months to undergo an extensive refurbishment and development project. As you can see from these photos posted today on Twitter by Adare Manor, the Manor House is slowly being encapsulated in a white wrap as the exterior conservation work continues.

Adare Manor offered the following details about the planned renovation:

This major refurbishment will enhance all areas of the resort including upgrading and restoring internal finishes, furniture and woodwork, and repairing the external stonework and windows. New designs by acclaimed architects Reardon Smith and interior designers Richmond will enhance all guest bedrooms and public areas. These renovations will honour the building's architectural heritage as a Neo-Gothic masterpiece and embody the hotel's signature style, whilst incorporating the latest in contemporary luxury and technological innovations.

Subject to planning permission, the construction of an additional bedroom wing will add extra bedrooms bringing the total room count to 104 bedrooms, while the addition of a splendid new ballroom will have the capacity of 350 people catering for events and international conferences; both will be clad in limestone, complimenting the architectural detail of the original Manor House. The enhancements in the Manor House will also include a new state of the art spa, pool and relaxation area, boardroom and cinema.

Plans are also in place for a complete transformation of the golf clubhouse with local architects, Michael Healy and Partners. While on the golf course, world-renowned golf course architect Tom Fazio will assist with improvements to make the course one of the finest Parkland courses in Europe.

The 800 acres of Adare Manor's beautiful parkland, walled gardens and walking trails will be enhanced and improved. It is planned to provide an activity centre which will add an extensive range of pursuits available to guests during their stay, including falconry, archery and a children’s activity zone.

Adare Manor is initially reminiscent of a chateau, but many of its features are
shared by great residences of the era in Britain and Ireland. Unusually, the Manor
is laid out as a Calendar House. 365 stained windows and 52 chimneys mark the
annual tally of days and weeks. There are also references to the 7 days of the week
and 12 months of the year.

If a passer-by had stopped to look at the Dunraven family home in the 1830s he would have seen a typical Georgian house. Returning twenty years later, he would have found that modest structure had disappeared and been replaced by the exceptional Neo-Gothic Manor that stands to this day as Adare Manor Hotel and Golf Resort. The house is initially reminiscent of a chateau, but many of its features are shared by great residences of the era in Britain and Ireland. Mysteriously, the Manor is laid out as a Calendar House. 365 stained windows and 52 chimneys mark the annual tally of days and weeks. Sleuthing visitors may be able to spot references to the 7 days of the week and 12 months of the year.
