We are delighted to have launched the final piece of our restoration, renovation and expansion project with the highly-anticipated debut of The Carriage House in mid May. Designed as a resort all-day dining destination, The Carriage House is complete with an exceptional grill restaurant, glamorous cocktail bar and lounge, spacious glazed terrace, cigar lounge and private dining room.
Every detail of the interior design has been chosen to celebrate the natural beauty of Adare Manor’s estate and to foster a sense of effortless opulence. The team of our dedicated chefs, led by Director of Culinary, Loughlin Druhan, have created an exciting menu featuring ingredients sourced from Ireland’s best producers around the country.
The inviting glazed Terrace serves breakfast and lunch daily. Boasting striking views of the putting green 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.
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 world’s 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 which is beautifully lit with leaf motif wall-lights in a brass finish and adorned with original artworks reflecting some of the very best of Irish talent.
The Bar is the social heart of the hotel, 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.
During the day The Carriage House is the perfect place for our guests to take a break from a busy schedule of estate activities and enjoy a spot of light lunch. In the evening it becomes a glittering meeting place where guests can linger over a remarkable meal in a warm and welcoming atmosphere and then sip a nightcap on the terrace as dusk falls over the estate.
