I love old architecture, historical places and graveyards. When I travel, it is wonderful to stumble upon them while I am exploring things to see and do in the area. It was great to wander around with my camera, taking pictures that have become warm memories of my time spent in the prettiest little Village Of Adare. A must see,... More

This old Friary building is right on the edge of town as you enter from the Northeast on the main road. It is important to note that while there is the Friary building there is also an active school in session on the property as well as part of the same structure. On the rear of the structure there are... More

We stayed in townhouses at Adare Manor, and this Augustinian Friary is right across the road, alongside the Maigue river. On the outside it looks like a lot of other old churches, but when you go inside, the thing that strikes you is the beauty of the stained glass windows. And it's so cool to know that the church is...

Heading out of town towards the main entrance to Adare Manor, you'll pass the Old Augustinian Friary & chuch on the left. We headed over to check it out as we couldn't pass up such a historical looking building just sitting there calling to us. The church is still functioning and the nearby St Nicholas National school is in operation.... More

this is such a beautiful and special church. My husband and I were married in this church on 10-10-10. It has so much history and a must see as well as the little town of Adare which we cherish every visit. If we could, we would move to Adare and live there forever.. Please visit when in Ireland!!!!

For a small village, there's an awful lot to see. Beautiful buildings and ruins. Loads of history. Anyone driving through should really make an effort to stop and visit some of the lovely historical sites.

Check out the old Franciscan Friary on the Adare Manor Golf Course if you get a chance. It is right across from the 2nd fairway - very worth seeing!

Nice place to visit, so historic, so gothic! Although not the nicest church we have visited since being in ireland (The Locke Restaurant in athlone, in a church, thats a WOW). Really nice place, alot of history! You would need over an hour to get through it all! Definetly worth a visit!

Adare is a beautiful village. It is interesting to imagine what it was like in the 14th. century with three important monastic settlements. The Trinitarian Abbey or 'White Abbey' which looks like a crash between a tower house and a church is now restored as the Roman Catholic parish church. The second is the Franciscan Abbey located in the Adare... More
