Ireland's Adare Manor Hotel & Golf Resort One of the World's Best Hotels
for 2013 According to Travel+Leisure

A “Top 500 Hotel in the World” for Ten Consecutive Years

Village, (Co. Limerick), Ireland,
January 2013 … Adare Manor, located near Limerick and Shannon International Airport, has been voted by readers of Travel+Leisure magazine one of the best hotels in the world for 2013.  The five-star resort has been named a “Top 500 Hotel on the World” for ten consecutive years.  Travel+Leisure is a leading luxury travel magazine published in the United States.

"This is such an honor for us at Adare Manor,” said Anita Higgins, general manager.  “To be named one of the world’s best hotels for a decade is a wonderful endorsement from the people most important to us ~ our customers.  I’m extremely proud of Adare Manor and of our hospitality team here, and how each day we strive to make a difference in the lives of our guests.”

The former manor house was until the 1980s the country seat of the Earls of Dunraven.  The second Earl also created adjacent Adare Village in the early 1800s. Today Adare Village is one of Ireland’s most cherished and picturesque destinations with its charming thatched-roof cottages originally built to house for workers of the estate.  In 1982, the Adare Manor was converted into a five star hotel, golf resort and spa. 

Adare Manor is a unique “Calendar House,” resplendent with architectural references to the days of the week & year (7 stone columns in the reception hall, 365 stained glass windows), and weeks of the month & year (4 roof-top towers, 52 chimneys). The estate, through which flows the River Maigue, features an exquisite French formal garden, the oldest Cedar of Lebanon tree in the British Isles dating to 1645, ancient stone monuments, and a spacious Victorian Walled Garden.  Inside are sumptuously appointed staterooms, bedroom chambers & suites, as well as the original carved oak-paneled dining room, the library containing books original to the estate, and the extraordinary Minstrel’s Gallery, one of Ireland’s grandest ballrooms.
