Restoration of Adare Manor

Adare Manor Hotel closed its doors to the public in January 2016 with the vision to bring it back to its former glory and create a luxury escape in historical surroundings.

Highly skilled craftsmen and women were sourced to work on the restoration which took almost two years to complete. The finished product is a sight to behold and testament to the work and care that was put in to it.

Piece by piece it was brought back to life with local stone masons and Limestone from local quarries repairing damage suffered over the years and adding a new wing to match the original detail and style.

All thirteen pitched roofs were stripped and re-roofed Killaloe Slate. Gutters, downpipes and other rainwater goods were in disrepair and few could be salvaged. Those that were saved, were carefully copied and was added to the new roofs

The many windows throughout Adare Manor were repaired and kept where possible and all non historic single panes were replaced with slim double glazing. One of the most impressive conservations was the repair of The Gallery’s stain glassed windows which are now restored to their former glory.

Adare Manor worked closely with a conservation architect  and took great care to preserve the building and decorated it with the appropriate materials and finishings and re-opened to the public in October 2018.
