After an extensive 22-month refurbishment that added a whole new 42-bedroom wing and a ballroom, it seems the investment in Adare Manor was more worth it as it finds itself placed among the very best hotels in the world.

The Co. Limerick hotel, purchased by Irish businessman JP McManus and family for a reported $36 million (€30 million) in 2015, has been named among Condé Nast Traveler’s 2018 Hot List, announcing it to the world as one of the top 102 hotels anywhere in the world that you can stay in.

"Adare is a delicious mix of old and new," Condé Nast says.

"While retaining an old-school, aristocratic vibe, Adare's fanciful gargoyles, genuinely warm staff, grand and intimate spaces, and super-comfortable rooms make it somewhere uniquely and unabashedly the Ireland of now."

Reopening in November 2017 after almost two years of refurbishment, Adare Manor has skyrocketed to world-class status, finding itself in the highly-anticipated traveler selection in just a few short months.
