Discover Adare Manor estate, including the Castle’s unique “Calendar House”

While at Adare Manor, the expanse of the estate is available to explore and there is much to discover. Pick an apple or a pear off a tree and tour the grounds of the 840-acre estate, originally home to the Earls of Dunraven. 

Magnificent trees are one of the defining aspects of Adare Manor, and there are lush woodlands. They are notable not just for their rare varieties but some specimens bear weatherworn messages for the keen eyed passer-by. Not least a particular oak, which was of substantial service to the Quin family in 1688.

Closer to home, lies the French Formal Gardens. Designed by PC Hardwick in the 1850s, the garden runs out from the southern aspect of the Manor, stretching towards the lush parkland beyond. Lording over Hardwick's snappy botanic ensemble, like an elder statesman, looms the estate's notable Lebanese Cedar tree. Believed to have been planted in 1645, this is the oldest of its kind in the British Isles. With the formal gardens boxwood parterres, abundant roses and tulips, it is a scented delight when the lavender is in bloom. The southern lawn occasionally plays host to falconers as well.

The Castle at Adare Manor is a unique “Calendar House,” featuring 365 stained windows and 52 chimneys, marking the annual tally of days and weeks. Other features of ascending size were incorporated to represent the 12 months and 4 seasons.

Curiosities are scattered through the grounds: centuries-old Ogham Stones, the Dunraven Pet Cemetery, the original Icehouse, the Walled Victorian [Back to Press Releases Main]
