“A Magnificent Manor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

Breathtaking as soon as you enter the property. The grounds are well manicured and enchanting. Our stateroom was beautifully furnished and impeccable. If you desire Old World elegance with warm hospitality, then Adare Manor is a must. But perhaps what i enjoyed most about the property, is that although it is vast in size, there is a feeling of intimateness that is incredibly welcoming when you are far from home. Needless to say, we will be back! Thank you for a magnificent stay!

Really poor value. Shoddy finishing and bare exposed wires . Tippy kitchen table and wood panelling in kitchen kept falling off. Scuffed walls throughout. Looks like unfinished security system which was alarming given the warnings throughout villa to keep doors and windows locked. Felt unsafe. Lots of written instructions all over what not to do. Checkout time really early at 10 am, although I was told on phone when I booked archery the day before we arrived at 10 am that checkout time was 12. So awkward that I had to ask for late checkout. We did get it although I think they phoned me at 11:50 wondering why we hadn't checked out yet. Also, a major pet peeve of mine is that Wifi was an additional fee through a 3 rd party vendor, and in order to subscribe to it, wanted your credit card info, full address and postal code. Felt nickel and dimed and unsecure! Very far from main house and gardens so doesnt feel like you are part of resort. No welcome basket or even map given at manor how to get to villas. I could go on with complaints but generally felt ripped off. Very very expensive, far too expensive for no daily housekeeping and no convenient resort amenities. Grounds are farmers field and golf course, so no where to go unless walk 20 minutes on a road to main house garden. Dryer was broken first night we were there. One good spot, dryer replaced within 1 h by villa concierge, Alfred in the morning, but I never did get the laundry caught up so we left with wet clothes. Also archery was good fun. Splurge elsewhere, stay somewhere cheaper when in this area.

Love love love it! The archery and falconry is a must! Also- make sure to do afternoon tea and snacks! So unique! The people are so friendly as well. The village of adare is really cute as well. Great location- close to the cliffs of Moher, the ring of Kerry, and Lehinch (cool beach!).

Words cannot express the beauty of Adare Manor. I love to take pictures when I'm traveling. I think I took 100 at Adare. Travel the ruins around the Manor. What is left of the old church is beautiful. I would come back here in a second. Next time I'll stay for two nights.

We spent two nights in a beautiful and large Superior Room, overlooking river Maigue and golf course. Both manor and garden are perfectly manicured. Breakfast was very good but we could expect a larger choice in such a place. We had a dinner at Carriage House (golf clubhouse), it was ok but nothing really special. Tack Room Bar in the basement is a lovely vaulted place where we had a last drink every night and enjoyed very intimate live bands playing irish music. Not to be missed!

We played a round of golf; course is perfectly maintained and well designed. Thanks to the valuable help from Ollie, our caddie, we really enjoyed our round, even if Adare Manor is not our favourite course among the eight we played during our trip across Ireland.
A short but beautiful experience !

We stayed here for one night on our wedding anniversary, en route to see friends in Kinsale. Our room, 306, was newly refurbished and spacious and luxurious. The hotel is a 15 minute walk to the lovely village of Adare, through the hotel grounds. We ate in the Oak Restaurant and were very impressed with the atmosphere (candles are the only light source), the service, and most of all the food. We would highly recommend the crab and scallops starters.
The following day we played an early round of golf on the superb course. The starter took us to the first tee, then checked on us from time to time to make sure all was ok. What a beautiful course, for someone used to links golf! Lunch was eaten in the busy club before we set off for Kinsale.
Well worth a visit.....

We chose to end our family trip to Ireland with a stay at the fabulous Adare Manor - wow were we disappointed!! We were all suitably impressed by the majestic facade of the hotel, but upon entering the lobby we stood around and waited while several staff completely ignored us - for several minutes (and as a family of 6 we are not easily ignored...) The gentleman who did eventually welcome us and show us to our rooms was very pleasant and helpful in showing us around, but we had to laugh at another very haughty-looking gentleman working there who seemed to pick up the phone any time we walked through the lobby - such a coincidence! Our rooms were recently renovated and they were certainly pretty, and it was fun to walk through the hotel to see our accommodations; however the rooms were not as clean as I feel they should have been - there were cobwebs hanging above the bed and from the chandeliers, and the bathroom sink wasn't clean )-: Also our shower was merely a trickle, and with a fixed panel glass door you had to really reach far in to turn on the two taps (that meant I had to get wet with either hot or cold water - great choice) No sprayer either so to rinse a smaller child's hair you're out of luck-we checked our other room's shower to see if we could shower there but it was the same measly spray which alternated between scalding and cold during the morning shower. We walked the expansive grounds which were lovely (btw not enough hotel umbrellas to borrow and no one told us there were some in our rooms although I asked at the front desk and it was pouring), but the fairy houses we'd come to explore were damaged in a storm and hadn't been put back - disappointing. Afternoon tea was fabulous and very much enjoyed - the service at tea was top notch and we all wished we'd come just for tea and stayed elsewhere. My husband went down to get a couple of beers before our room service dinner as we were told they could only bring wine with room svce. He went to the tap room at 9pm and was told they couldn't serve him because the computers weren't on and the facility didn't open until 9:30pm, disappointing but he did eventually get the beers from someone who recognized how silly that response was in a hotel like Adare Manor. Room service that night was pretty grim - the cheese platter was delicious, but we rcvd only four crackers and four thin slices of pear (or apple, it was so thinly sliced it was hard to tell) with lots of cheese. Inedible rubbery grilled cheese for our daughter. Thankfully the wine was good! Breakfast buffet the next morning was a complete disappointment. Granted, it was included in our astronomical room charge, but it consisted of dried out scones and bread, a small assortment of fruit which had little bugs flitting about and cereals. Two of us chose to order eggs off the menu for an upcharge. Given the price of our accommodations and the reputation of the hotel we expected far more than we received, and my husband and I both decided it wouldn't have been any better if it was just the two of us for a golf weekend. Definitely save your money and stay elsewhere, there's not much here to recommend beyond a quick tour of the grounds which you can accomplish by coming for afternoon tea.

Room Tip: Not sure - our rooms were adjoining but I'd suspect most rooms would be adequate here. Definitel...
