Adare is known as Ireland’s prettiest village. Among the many gems in the village are Desmond Castle (tours available from the Heritage Centre), The Franciscan Priory, the Trinitarian Priory and Augustinian Priory.
Why not step back in time and take a journey through the historical exhibition (based in the Adare Heritage Centre), a reconstruction of Adare’s unique past from the arrival of the Norman’s to the ancient abbeys of the middle-ages.
In addition to the historical exhibition the Heritage Centre is home to a number of gift and craft outlets, Adare’s Tourist Information Office, Adare’s library and the Dovecot Restaurant.
The Heritage Exhibition at the Adare Heritage Centre is ideal for school tours, groups etc. and is open year round. Groups may try out the long bow and try on clothes that may have been worn by Medieval kids!
Booking for groups is essential. There is ample coach and car parking available and the centre is wheelchair accessible.
