Live like a lord or lady at Adare ManorLife the life of the Lord or Lady of the manor for a few days at this impressive five-star hotel on extensive grounds in Adare, Co Limerick which was once the seat of the Earl of Dunraven. As well as beautifully appointed guest rooms - the hotel underwent an extensive two-year renovation, with no detail spared - what sets this property apart is its magnificent setting on 840 acres of parkland. There is everything from formal gardens to wild woodland to enjoy, plus an 18-hole championship golf course which is set to host the 2026 Ryder Cup.
Play a round of golf or take a bike and explore the grounds or Adare village which is famous for its thatched cottages. You can also enjoy fishing, archery, clay pigeon shooting or falconry on the grounds. For an indoors day, relax in the spa and swimming pool or take in the atmosphere beside the fire in the Great Hall or over afternoon tea in the magnificent Gallery Room. Aspiring lords or ladies should have pre or post-dinner drinks in the basement Tack Room and book a lavish dinner in the Oak Room, or for something more casual for lunch or dinner, the Carriage House is a more informal setting and just a few minutes walk from the main house. Make sure you get outside and explore the grounds at your own pace - for a mini nature immersion, walk the forest where there's a mindfulness trail and some interesting fairy installations.
