Attraction details
Owner description: Snuggled in a wooded setting among the rich quiet farmlands of the Golden Vale by the River Maigue, Adare is a model village dating from the time of the Norman conquest. It has been home to the Earls of Dunraven (Quin Family) for over three centuries and is located on the Limerick to Tralee road, the N21, a great pit stop for those on the way to the Ring of Kerry. The Adare Heritage Centre, located in the middle of this charming town with its many thatched houses, allows you to step back in time through an informative historical exhibition, also incorporating a tourist office, gift, craft and heraldry outlets, and a restaurant. During Summer months - June-September - The Desmond Castle tour exclusively runs from the Heritage Centre 7 days a week, with a new tour every hour.

“Great Cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 weeks ago

Great cafe with lots of home produce visited in the morning, lovely cup of tea and fresh scones. Locals here in the morning which is always a good sign. There are a few shops in this complex and a museum, very interesting facts about the history of Adare here worth a visit, doesn't take long go get around.

“An experience not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2017 via mobile

On visiting Adare it is imperative that one should visit the Heritage Centre, an experience to be enjoyed by all ages, where one will find efficient, caring staff with a high standard restaurant and lovely shopping to be enjoyed. A hub where information regarding all aspects of the village can be attained.

“The Dovecote restaurant a gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2017 via mobile

We visited the Dovecote restaurant on 2 consecutive evenings and were very impressed not only in the excellent food on offer but by the way the staff went over and above mere customer service. From the moment you set foot in the place you are welcomed by a member of staff to Adare before being shown to your table. You are also help with picking and ordering your food choices and the service at table was second to none.They only example I can compare it to was a visit to your grans for tea very homely. Well done we will visit again on our next visit to Adare.
