OUR OPINION:

A beautiful, traditional property with a lovely mix of character and contemporary comfort, the Dunraven Arms Hotel is a great option in the pretty village of Adare which is often hailed as one of Ireland's most picturesque.

Rooms

Classically elegant with an old-world charm but full modern amenities, the rooms are spacious and comfortable with plush bedding and a natural palette of white and yellow. All rooms offer free Wi-Fi, flat screen TV and spacious bathrooms with powerful showers while suites come with separate lounge areas and garden views. Some also feature gas fires, roll top baths and canopied four-poster beds.

Location

The hotel is situated in the heart of the beautiful village of Adare, just a 20 minute drive from Limerick. The village plays out along a single street lined with quaint, 19th-century thatched cottages now housing craft shops and cafés. There's also a beautifully weathered Augustinian priory and a romantic riverside castle nearby.

Food and drink

The hotel's Maigue Restaurant is named after the local river and serves a menu based on seasonal local produce at breakfast and dinner. Breakfast includes an excellent spread of hot and cold dishes including baked Limerick ham. Dinner is atmospheric, lit by chandeliers, and features a menu that takes traditional Irish cuisine and adds modern flare. Light meals are also served in the Hunters Bar, an intimate space with oak-panels on the walls, leather banquettes and a jazz pianist.

Facilities and activities

The hotel has a 17 m indoor swimming pool, an extensive fitness suite staffed by professional trainers who can give one-on-one training and a series of beauty rooms where guests can receive a bit of pampering with a range of treatments from body wraps to massages and facials.
