Ireland's Neo-gothic Masterpiece, Adare Manor, Reopening With Valuable Boost From Virtuoso®

Five-Star Castle Hotel Set to Welcome Guests Again After the Largest Restoration Project of its Kind in the Country

NEW YORK, July 10, 2017 /CNW/ -- International luxury travel network Virtuoso® is offering travelers valuable benefits at historic Adare Manor when it reopens this fall. As the Irish hotel is taking part in the network's prestigious Preview program, guests who book their stay through a Virtuoso travel advisor will enjoy these exclusive complimentary advantages:

  • Guaranteed room upgrade for reservations made June 1-December 31, 2017, for stays during 2018
  • Full Irish breakfast for two
  • Afternoon tea
  • Early check-in and late check-out if available

Adare Manor is being transformed by a major renovation that is honoring its architectural legacy while incorporating the latest in modern luxury. Closed for over 18 months, the hotel is adding a 42-room wing, bringing the total to 104 rooms. Heritage craftsmen are overseeing the meticulous upgrade and restoration of finishes, furniture, woodwork, stonework and windows. The refurbishment is enhancing the entire resort, including redesigned guest rooms and public areas, and introducing contemporary comforts such as air conditioning in all rooms and elevators to every floor.

"Adare Manor's transformation will allow this opulent gem to shine in a new light," said Albert Herrera, Virtuoso's senior vice president of Global Product Partnerships. "This romantic treasure is already famed for bringing its rich history alive for guests, who are transported to a more elegant, slower-paced era. With these improvements, visitors will savor modern conveniences alongside an abundance of unique experiences, providing a strong sense of place and creating lifelong memories."

The existing Manor House will feature an indoor pool and relaxation area with a sauna, fitness center and movie theater. It will also house a new state-of-the-art spa, The Spa at Adare Manor the U.K. and Ireland's only La Mer Spa. From La Mer's transformational products to the exclusive treatments inspired by the sea, the spa will offer a sanctuary to rejuvenate mind and body.

Located in County Limerick, Adare Manor sits in the heart of Adare village, where thatched cottages and ancient stone walls preserve an unspoiled Ireland. The manor's 842 acres feature parkland, walled gardens and walking trails. The grounds are also being enhanced during the closure, and will offer an extensive range of pursuits, including falconry, archery, clay pigeon shooting, Segway activities, fishing, tennis, cycling, and historical tours. In addition to clubhouse improvements, world-renowned golf course designer Tom Fazio is supervising a comprehensive redesign of the manor's 18-hole championship course, which will secure its place among the finest in Europe.  

Adare Manor is the latest luxury property to be announced as a participant in the respected Virtuoso Preview program. Through Preview, clients of Virtuoso advisors receive exclusive benefits, while hotels obtain extensive assistance before they open, including networking opportunities, advisor training, and sales and marketing programs. Preview is part of Virtuoso's esteemed Hotels & Resorts Program, commemorating 25 years in 2017, which comprises more than 1,200 world-class properties in over 100 countries.
