Adare Manor has been named among the best new hotels in the world by the editors of Travel + Leisure.
The ‘It List’ is the magazine’s master collection of the best “new and reborn hotel openings” of the past year.
The only Irish hotel named on the 56-hotel list, Adare Manor has recently reopened following an extensive refurbishment.
Speaking about the Limerick property, Travel + Leisure wrote: “One of Ireland’s most beloved properties, this 19th-century manor turned hotel shines again following a nearly two-year-long renovation.”
Highlighting the facilities on the 842-acre estate, the magazine mentioned the Tom Fazio-designed golf course, a La Mer spa, and an additional 42-bedroom wing.
They added: “In keeping with the original style, the rooms and public spaces feature oil paintings and heraldry to satisfy all those time-travel fantasies.
“After trying your hand at traditional pastimes like clay pigeon shooting and falconry, stop for Irish tea in the Gallery, a soaring space with stained-glass windows, or settle in for an early dinner at the Oak Room, which serves regional specialties like Tipperary quail. End the night at the Tack Room, where there are over 100 rare Irish whiskeys on offer.”
