Ireland’s Adare Manor to Reopen in September

Kokomo Island Fiji, Four Seasons at the Surf Club, The Oberoi Al Zorah… We’ve been keeping a running tally of hot hotels to watch in 2017. Another one to add to the list isn’t a new hotel, but the result of a top-to-bottom restoration. Adare Manor-- the historic Neo-Gothic mansion on a 840-acre estate in County Limerick—closed in January 2016 for an 18-month, multimillion dollar makeover. The five-star hotel will show off the fruits of this big project in September 2017.

Tom Fazio is upgrading the 18-hole championship golf course (and there will be a new clubhouse), while architects Reardon Smith and Richmond International were recruited to work on the hotel building. The refurbishment will include restoring historical details like the external stonework and windows. New additions include a spa, ballroom, pool and relaxation area, cinema, boardroom, plus a new wing with an additional 42 new rooms. The total room count will be 104 guestrooms.
