This is a great place for photos. See is you can find the "door to nowhere." Took a photo back for my students to write about and the stories I got were fantastic. Take the time to just relax and explore.

Something to see and learn about after driving to various surrounding sites. Adjacent to Adare Manor which is a beautiful place to stay and/or eat. Lovely old church across street worth entering as well. Some great views of friary, manor, and castle ruins from the golf course - A must for any golfer to try. Spent five days at manor... More

I went to school in the old abbey here, before the new school was built. Looking back, it was an an amazing and unique experience to go to school in a place so steeped in history, and set in such a picturesque location. A tour of the cloisters in the dark is fun if you're seeking a spook, but otherwise... More

Thai is an interesting link to the past. There was a guy there who was very helpful giving us the history of the place. Cromwell and Henry VIII have a lot to answer for!

The Heritage Center told us where the friary was, a ten minute walk, and it was; HOWEVER, we could not enter the chapel. The outside looked pretty cool, but I wanted to see the inside.

We visited just at sunset and the light (or lack of it) made the place truly surreal. The town had experienced a terrible wind storm just a week before so some giant trees were down and it was incredible that the ruins did not sustain more damage. We visited three churches in Adare that evening and each one was fascinating... More

Someplace that I never thought I would go, and seemed surreal when I was there. If you are a photographer, do not miss this opportunity. This is a great place to get amazing pictures!

There are some very old buildings in Adare that make you feel like you got stuck in a time capsule hundreds of years ago. I loved the architecture of the Friary and would advise anyone to check it out! Beautiful grounds as well.
