Adare Manor
Adare Manor
Now the Adare Manor Hotel, it started life in 1832 when the 2nd Earl of Dunraven who at the time was suffering acutely with gout, was encouraged by his wife Lady Caroline to undertake the building of this vast pile in order to distract him from the pain of his affliction. Sadly he never lived to see his dream completed which was finally realised in 1862, some 12 years after his death. In 1984, unable to keep up with the expense of the upkeep of this huge house and its 840 acre estate, it was sold to an Irish-American who has turned it into an upmarket hotel.
