Car Service Adare Manor | Adare Manor, Part 2- The Future
Adare Manor closed it’s doors temporarily in January 2016 for what is thought to be a €50 million refurbishment. The expected opening will be Autumn 2017 and the anticipation is great as everyone awaits the spectacular renovations of this famous building. In the past it has housed some very famous faces: former US president Bill Clinton, Michael Douglas, Bruce Springsteen and Tiger Woods, they are only a few of the notable names to grace the prestigious Adare Manor. Allow us to arrange your very own Car Service to Adare Manor as soon as it opens and start your Luxury Tour of Ireland the right way!
Jp McManus is the famous Limerick man behind this colossal refurbishment of Adare Manor. He purchased the magnificent building in November 2014, along with his lovely wife Noreen and family. They sought planning permission for the multi-million euro renovations to begin in January 2016. Billionaire McManus built his business career at his family’s construction firm before going on to horse ownership and then owning his own stud. He has had great success with horse racing through the years and established his fortune through this, amongst many other business endeavours. Jp McManus has contributed millions of his fortune towards local charities through the years and is very much a loved figure in Limerick and throughout Ireland. If we could make him the Irish President tomorrow, we would!
The Adare Golf Pro-Am was the brain child of JP McManus and has raised over €100 million for good causes. The 2 day charity Golf Tournament took place in 2010 and 2015, the hope is that it will continue once the newly refurbished Adare Manor is complete. McManus has confirmed plans are for the next one to go ahead in 2020. The infamous Golf Pro-Am also attracted many famous faces from around the globe such as: Michael Douglas, Padraig Harrington, Garry Lineker, Harry Redknapp, Darren Clarke, Samuel L Jackson and Hugh Grant. Too many more to name! The gorgeous village of Adare just comes to life during the Pro-Am and is definitely worth seeing. Including the Pro-Am as your private tour of Ireland is highly recommended,even if you are not a golf fanatic and simply want to celebrity-spot!
The planning permission approved for Adare Manor is thought to be adding 42 extra bedrooms to the already magnificent building, making a total of 104 bedrooms to choose from. If you wish to have more private accommodation there will be two, three & four bedroom townhouses & Villas, ‘Manor Lodges’ located on the resort. There will also be elevators to all floors in the hotel. The 800 acres of Adare Manor’s beautiful parkland, walled gardens and walking trails will be enhanced and improved. Nothing has been forgotten with this refurbishment, I imagine when it’s completed it will resemble a small village! There will be an in- house boutique, an in- house florist, a boot room, in-house laundry, Butler service, Valet parking and as always 24-hour security at the entrance gates.
Fancy a cocktail before dinner? Or perhaps you’ve become so enthralled with that recent novel you just can’t put it down? The Library is the ideal setting to relax and absorb your exquisite surroundings. There are also light lunch and snacks available for residents in the Drawing room and Library. If you are seeking a Mediterranean environment then the Tack Room Bar serves Tapas and beverages each evening.

There will be a stunning Ballroom to accommodate up to 350 guests for a gala dinner & 440 guests when arranged theatre style. Gala dinners will be served in the new Ballroom and I’m sure this room will be booked out very quickly. This new Ballroom will also be available for that dream wedding and with the backdrop of the Adare Manor Estate, it will provide the most beautiful scenic views for guests to enjoy and for the most incredible photographs to be taken of the special day. With the Holy Trinity Abbey Church right beside the Manor your private chauffeur can drive you the short distance in no time.
There’s also the addition of a new Conference Centre. There is now an executive boardroom to accommodate up to 30 guests for those smaller business meetings but the ballroom is also an option as it can accommodate 440 guests (when arranged lecture style) for those larger conferences. Although guests do have to to be staying at the Adare Manor to avail of the Business Centre, the meeting rooms can be booked separately.

In any room with one remote, guests can control blinds, lights, temperature, TV, music, as well as schedule wake-up calls, request valet service and so much more!
The bathrooms are like something you’d see in a classically styled Hollywood mansion. Most bathrooms will have double sinks, a separate bath and a walk-in shower. Whether you have a long soak in the tub or a quick blast in the power shower one thing’s for sure, it will be in the most luxurious, deluxe ambience.
Dinner will served in the fine dining and infamous Oakroom Restaurant, named the Best Hotel Restaurant in Ireland in 2015. Adare Manor has also earned international acclaim for its excellence in fine-dining and award-winning chefs. The Oakroom is a beautiful, intimate space overlooking the River Maigue and once opened again in 2017 will no doubt be winning more awards.

Adare Manor is long known as one of Ireland’s true gems and standard bearers, and Adare Village is known as the prettiest village in Ireland. Despite its quaintness and relaxed atmosphere, Adare has it all. The old gates of Adare Manor open on to the village main street where you can amble up leisurely through the thatched roof lined streets and visit craft shops, millners, boutiques,cafes and award-winning restaurants. See the church in the village that is so picturesque it’ll be difficult to pass by when a wedding is taking place!
The village has supermarkets, mini markets, ATMs, craft shops, gift and souvenir shops. Adare is steeped in history and its old Abbey ruins and ancient structures are truly picturesque. There are some fine select bars here too where traditional Irish pub grub is available and the locals will happily trade tales and jokes under the din of Irish music, all of which adds up a bit of ‘craic’!
If you’ve been wrestling with the Atlantic elements on a golf links or taking in a day trip of site seeing and experiences, its quite pleasurable and relaxed to have a village like Adare and accommodation like Adare Manor to unwind in and walk around as you fully soak up and appreciate your days experiences.
Adare’s Old Creamery was founded as a creamery in the 1900’s but bought and refurbished by current owner Helen Mackessy in the 1990’s. It’s difficult to describe what the building is now because it’s more than just a store, when you walk in the doors it feels like home and Christmas! Yes, Christmas is celebrated all year round in the Creamery as the owner loves the jovial season. There are also many traditional Irish gifts sold here and a quaint little tea-room.
