Our favourite hotels in Adare
The first section of our guide is packed with our favourite Adare hotels – these are places that one or more of our team have stayed over the years.
Below, you’ll find everywhere from The Dunraven and Adare Manor to some often over-looked hotels in Adare.
1. Fitzgeralds Woodlands House Hotel
So, you’ll see many guides to the best Adare hotels lead with Adare Manor. There’s no doubt that it’s one of the finest hotels in Limerick and Ireland as a whole.
However, it’s just completely out of reach for the vast majority of people. Our top spot goes to the brilliant Woodlands Hotel (based on personal experience).
This 4-star hotel is located just outside of Adare Village and it boasts exceptional service, a spa, a cosy pub and a one of the most popular restaurants in Adare.
Rooms are comfy, bright and each is tastefully decorated. There’s also a pool if you fancy a dip.
2. The Dunraven
This family-run 4-star luxury hotel is situated amidst the world-renowned picturesque village of Adare. A complex of buildings, some dating back to the eighteenth century, come together to create 87 luxurious bedrooms and guest suites.
There’s also an elegant ballroom that holds up to 300 people, an award-winning restaurant, and a spa with a full gym.
Rooms range from a luxury double through executive to junior and executive suites. All rooms come with complimentary breakfast, WiFi, parking, and unlimited use of the spa and gym.
3. Adare Manor
Looking for somewhere to celebrate a momentous occasion? Look no further than the lavish Adare Manor.
With a stunning interior that looks like something from another time, a Michelin star restaurant, a private golf course and numerous bars, this place really is indulgence at its finest.
Each of the rooms on offer is luxurious and options range from classic rooms to manor lodges. There’s also an award-winning spa and a range of experiences and activities on offer.
It is worth noting though that the hotel is thought of as a ‘destination hotel’, and the rates are considered to be expensive, so won’t suit the median travel budget.
4. Adare Country House
Opened in 2001, this country house offers luxury accommodation a short walk from the centre of the town.
It’s a stone’s throw from many of the best things to do in Adare and there’s a choice of two double rooms, twin rooms and family rooms.
Each of the rooms is spacious and individually decorated to high standards. Ample parking is provided, and WiFi is available throughout.
