It’s been the talk of the town for months, and now the legendary Adare Manor—the historic Neo-Gothic manor house in County Limerick—is showing off the results of a sumptuous renovation. The five-star hotel closed its doors in January 2016 for the largest refurbishment in 25 years. Adare Manor officially reopened on Thursday, November 2 to much fanfare and celebration.

The Limerick Leader reports that the renovation will make “the Limerick hotel one of the most exclusive, expensive and most sought-after venues in the country, employing 350 people in the process.” With such a highly anticipated reopening, the hotel is already getting a flood of new bookings, including 35 weddings. Indeed, the sparkling new ballroom makes this an enticing spot for an event; overlooking the river Maigue, the ballroom features a grand staircase, marble floors and crystal chandeliers, and can accommodate 350 guests.

The painstaking restoration touched every nook and cranny of the property: external stonework, windows, doors, furniture and woodwork. Even the roof was removed, repaired then put back in place. Electrical and mechanical systems were updated; there’s also a brand new heating and cooling system for the guest rooms.
