Adare Manor Hotel

Surrounded by 341-hectare estate with winding woodland paths, medieval ruins and the magical River Maigue, sits the grand Adare Manor. It’s nothing short of an Irish fairy tale. The restored building houses 104 bedrooms, each individually decorated with Georgian-inspired mahogany furniture, fireplaces and roll-top bathtubs. Head chef Michael Tweedie creates a sensational six- course tasting menu in The Oak Room, where eponymous decoration creates a magical glow as candlelight bounces off the wood-panelled surroundings. Expect the likes of monkfish cooked on the bone with cauliflower, brown shrimp and Thai spices. After, head to the 1920s-inspired Tack Room for one of their excellent cocktails. Doubles from £280.
