I've spent three or four nights at the Adare every year for many years now. It really is a great B&B. It has a good situation, about a 10 minute walk to the centre of town, or a 15 minute walk to the railway station or to get buses. There is free parking in front of the hotel. One always gets a great welcome at the Adare and the people who run it are very helpful. For instance, they served breakfast 20 minutes early on Sunday especially for me so that I could get my breakfast before going for the bus to Dublin airport. The breakfasts are just amazing - the best I've had in any hotel or B&B I've stayed in. There is a great selection of cereals, bowls of fresh fruit salad, and bowls of other fruits like berries, grapefruit, prunes etc. Lots of juices - apple, orange, pink grapefruit etc. Coffee is filter coffee from a jug or there is a machine to make espresso, cappuccino, etc. Pots of tea for those who like that drink. They have all the usual cooked breakfasts. The full Irish or the smoked salmon are both great. Rooms are fine but not quite up to the exceptional standard of the breakfasts. The two bottles of water and two kit-kat bars in the room on arrival was a nice touch. The bed was comfortable, and the shower worked well. However, the TV was only tuned to 3 channels and the reading lights over the bed didn't work. The coffee machine is switched on in the breakfast room all day and part of the room is a lounge with comfortable chairs to relax in and drink coffee at any time (you could also make tea.) There are chocolate biscuits in a tin, a large screen TV to watch, or some books to read. If you are late back in the evening (after say 11 o'clock) the room is closed. I paid €60 a night for a single room B&B.
