    I recently took my 2 adult sons to Ireland and stayed at Adare Manor. Without question, the finest
    experience in my hotel career. From the greeting at the door, the reception, the F&B quality, housekeeping, the grounds—all perfect. The most remarkable memory was the “Can Do” attitude of the staff! When you check out you receive your receipt and go home with a memory. We are still talking about the Adare Manor experience and the outstanding memory.
    You were awarded the Hotel of the year by Virtuoso–100% agree.
    My family worked for the Hilton family for 138 years combined. My father was President and CEO, I retired as Area VP Mid-Atlantic and my brother President of one of our gaming hotels. Our brand satisfied our markets and we know quality when we experience a total quality hotel operation. Congratulations to you and your team.
    We will return!
