Brand New Clubhouse, Restaurant, Bar and Terrace adds to 5* golf experience at the County Limerick castle and golf resort
Ireland’s newest five-star castle and golf resort in County Limerick, Adare Manor, has officially opened its Carriage House, offering a resort dining destination to complement The Golf Course at Adare Manor. The Carriage House, where guests can enjoy an artisan grill experience in a stylishly relaxed atmosphere, is complete with a glamorous cocktail bar and lounge, spacious glazed terrace, cigar lounge and private dining chamber.
Renovated to match the standards of The Golf Course, The Carriage House will welcome the resort’s golfers pre and post-round with an ambiance of relaxed elegance and effortless luxury. Every detail of the interior design has been chosen to celebrate the natural beauty of Adare Manor’s estate, whilst the glazed terrace makes it possible for guests to soak-up the estate’s impressive vistas year-round.
Paul Heery, General Manager of Adare Manor, said: “There has been much anticipation of the opening of The Carriage House Restaurant, Terrace and Bar. Our great team at Adare Manor have enjoyed putting the finishing touches to this wonderful addition to the resort with every detail complementing the views of the surrounding landscape of the Adare Manor estate and newly reopened golf course. We want all our guests to enjoy a comfortable, relaxing, yet luxurious dining experience, with the very best of Irish produce.
“Since we re-opened Adare Manor late last year, we have received huge local support, and we have welcomed guests from Adare, throughout Ireland and internationally. With the opening of The Carriage House, we look forward to now offering a new guest experience.”
Adare Manor recommends golfers visit The Terrace at the Carriage House where a relaxed breakfast menu can be enjoyed ahead of tackling the newly renovated Tom Fazio-designed golf course. Equally, lunch and light dining options reward golfers post-round with fresh local produce taking centre stage. Refined salads and sandwiches as well as gourmet pizzas are masterfully prepared in front of diners’ eyes in the show-kitchen, located in the heart of The Terrace.
The Carriage House rounds-off Adare Manor’s world-class golf experience following a two-year reconstruction commissioned by the ownership of the Adare Manor resort, the McManus Family, which saw the unveiling of The Golf Course at Adare Manor in April 2018. Presenting a layout to rival the finest in the world, the Fazio Design and Adare Manor teams have established a 7,509-yard championship golf course created to the most exacting of standards. Now with the Carriage House in operation, Adare Manor provides golfers with a complete luxury on and off course experience, including a comprehensively stocked Pro Shop and welcoming locker rooms.
Details of the new dining experience offered at The Carriage House are below:
The Carriage House Restaurant
The Carriage House Restaurant showcases the best in artisanal and local produce, prime Irish dry aged beef and fresh fish. Open for dinner daily, the menu shines a spotlight on Irish favourites with an elegant flare, including Connemara lamb and Atlantic lobster, alongside some of the best prime cuts of beef, grilled using sustainably sourced charcoal. The architectural highlight of the restaurant is its beautiful central skylight and delicate seeded glass panels that allow natural light to flood the room, offering an artfully lit ambiance from day to night. For private dining, The Carriage House offers an elegant private Chamber to accommodate parties of up to 28 persons, which can also double as an exclusive meeting room.
The Bar is the social heart of the resort, offering light bites alongside a remarkable collection of fine wines, craft beers, and sophisticated cocktails. Designed as a perfect union of traditional Irish culture and elevated contemporary styling, the rich leathers, dark-stained oak furnishings and an impressive Breccia Capraia marble framed fireplace, offer a sense of timeless luxury.
The Terrace and The Cigar Lounge
The glazed Terrace is a culinary destination serving lunch and breakfast daily. Boasting striking views of the putting green of the newly reopened golf course and manicured landscape, the Terrace perfects the transition between indoors and out. Taking centre stage is the open show-kitchen, allowing guests to observe as chefs artfully prepare refined salads, sandwiches and gourmet pizzas. Adjoining the Terrace through a glazed wall is the intimate Cigar Lounge, perfect for those yearning to pair their smoke with a rare Irish whiskey from the hotel’s exceptional collection.
The Carriage House Lounge is a haven of peace and relaxation, an ideal area for reading or quiet conversations. In the evening, the lounge becomes a welcoming extension to the bar, where guests can relax over a drink or enjoy the company of friends.
The Golf Course at Adare Manor and Pro Shop
The Golf Course at Adare Manor was re-opened last month by four world-renowned Irish golfing stars, Rory McIlroy, Padraig Harrington, Paul McGinley and Shane Lowry. The course was completely redesigned, remodelled and rebuilt by a team lead by leading golf course architect Tom Fazio. Over a two-year reconstruction period, the Fazio Design and Adare Manor team created a 7,509-yard championship golf course to the most exacting of standards with the goal of establishing the course amongst the finest in the world. The Carriage House also offers a comprehensively stocked Pro Shop and welcoming locker rooms for golfers in the clubhouse.
Adare Manor plays a key role in the local community and it is estimated that the resort will contribute in excess of €15 million to the local economy annually.
