Adare Village - Embracing the Best of Ireland

The charming village of Adare, founded in the 13th Century, overlooks the fording point of the River Maigue from which the village derives its meaning “The Ford of the Oak” (Áth Dara). Located just 18 kilometres south-west of Limerick city, the village is widely renowned as one of the most beautiful in Ireland.

With a history and culture stretching back centuries and a community as welcoming as you could hope to find anywhere in the world, Adare embraces the very best of Ireland. Picture postcard thatched cottages line its broad main street, housing craft shops and restaurants, while medieval buildings and outstanding ancient and archaeological ruins are particular highlights of the village.
