Adare Manor Reopens After Extensive Refurbishment
Today (Thursday November 2) marks the reopening of the great entrance doors into Adare Manor after an extensive restoration, refurbishment and expansion programme over the past 21 months.
Commenting on the doors' reopening, Adare Manor CEO Colm Hannon said, “This marks a new beginning for Adare Manor’s esteemed legacy. A labour of love from the very start, Adare Manor was created by its original owners to delight, astonish, and impress – and we continue to hold ourselves accountable to that vision today, which is vividly alive in this new guest experience, and even further reflected by our world-class team, whose personalised service is what makes Adare Manor feel like home.”
Adare Manor temporarily closed its doors in early 2016. The newly designed resort includes a new 42-bedroom wing, bringing the total number of bedrooms to 104 bedrooms. A new ballroom with a capacity for 350 guests has also been added and the entire extension has been clad in limestone to complement the architectural detail of the original Manor House.
The original building, from Neo-Gothic architectural heritage, has been fully developed inside with a new La Mer spa, pool and relaxation area as well as a boardroom and cinema for guests and delegates to enjoy. The Spa at Adare Manor will debut Ireland and the UK’s first and only La Mer Spa, making it one of the eleven La Mer spas worldwide. In March 2018, Adare Manor will open its newly rebuilt, redesigned and remodelled golf course, which was led by golf course architect Tom Fazio with the Adare Manor team.
The 842 acres of parkland surrounding Adare Manor has also been enhanced, including new walking trails and walled gardens. There is a host of exotic plants and trees and the sweeping parkland includes beeches, monkey puzzles, cork, aspen and flowering cherry trees dating back to the nineteenth century.
Guests also have the option of partaking in activities such as falconry, cycling, archery and fishing.
