Limerick), Ireland … November 2012 …  The historic Adare Manor, located near Limerick, Ireland, and Shannon International Airport, has been honored as a Fodor’s Choice Resort.  Fodor’s, a leading name in luxury travel guides for over 75 years, announced the selection, recognizing Adare Manor Hotel & Golf Resort as a leader in its field for service, quality, and value throughout the year 2012.  The award is one of several that the five star Adare Manor received during the year.
“This has been a wonderful year of honors for our resort,” said Anita Higgins, general manager of Adare Manor Hotel & Golf Resort.  “Though our historic castle-like hotel is extraordinary, what brings awards like Fodor’s Choice is our people, and the service experience guests enjoy when visiting.  I am especially grateful to our team of hospitality professionals, and to each and every one of our remarkable guests.”
The editors and travel experts at Fodor’s select only the top 15 percent of their listed properties as Fodor’s Choice award recipients annually. Throughout the year, Fodor’s writers experience, examine and evaluate thousands of hotels, restaurants and attractions in their travels worldwide. While every business included in a Fodor’s guide is deemed worth a traveler’s time, only those offering a truly remarkable experience are given the Fodor’s Choice designation.

In addition to their 2012 selection as a Fodor’s Choice Resort, Adare Manor received several other awards and honors throughout the year, including the Condé Nast Traveler "Best in the World" Gold & Platinum lists for 2012, the Condé Nast Traveler "Top Foreign Golf Resort" list, Travel+Leisure magazine's “Top 500 Hotels in the World” award, “Ireland's Leading Hotel” designation by the World Travel Awards, and TripAdvisor's “Certificate of Excellence for 2012.”
The five star, early 19th Century neo-gothic Adare Manor Hotel & Golf Resort is set in an historic castle-like former manor house surrounded by manicured lawns, exquisite formal gardens, and acres of bucolic parklands, once the estate’s deer park.  Beyond the original front gates is Adare Village -- built by the second Earl of Dunraven and originally part of the estate, and is today considered one of Ireland’s most picturesque villages with its charming thatched roof homes.  A unique “Calendar House,” Adare Manor has 365 stained glass windows, 52 chimneys, 7 pillars in the lobby for each day of the week and 4 towers for each season.  The manor’s magnificent Minstrel’s Gallery is one of Europe’s most spectacular ballrooms, and is 132 foot long and 26½ feet high.  The stunning gothic room was inspired by the Hall of Mirrors in the Palace of Versailles and it retains its original intricately carved galleries.
