Site Seeing / History & Culture
Built in the early 13th century, Desmond Castle is located just on the edge of the village of Adare. After being the property of the Earls of Kildare for almost 300 years, the castle was forfeited and granted to the Earls of Desmond in 1536, who gave it its name. Tours take about 90 minutes and can be booked through the Adare Heritage Centre in the village.
Hunt Museum, Co. Limerick
Hosting an internationally important collection of over 2,000 works of antiques and art, the Hunt Museum is beautifully displayed in a restored Customs House. Visitors will find works from the Neolithic period up to the 20th century, including pieces by Yeats and Picasso.
It also houses a lovely café overlooking the river, serving wonderful food, created on site, using local produce.
Journey time to the Hunt Museum from Adare Manor is only 30 minutes.
King John’s Castle, Co. Limerick
King John’s Castle, in the heart of Limerick’s Medieval Heritage Precinct, is located on the River Shannon at ‘King’s Island’.

Journey time to King’s Island from Adare Manor is approximately 33 minutes.
Restaurants & Pubs
While Adare Manor will have the most amazing foodie outlets & pubs on the resort, which will be definite options for your welcome party, rehearsal dinner and post wedding brunch, the village itself offers some fabulous restaurants & Pubs to consider for more intimate / less formal dining occasions, finishing up with a music session in one of the singing pubs.
