To enhance your festivities, we have put together a joyful collection of seasonal delights for you. Picking out the perfect Christmas gift to make someone feel cherished and appreciated is a fabulous feeling. A gift from Adare Manor does just that.
1) A Taste of Adare Manor Hamper
The ideal gift for any discerning connoisseur on your list this Christmas, or a special treat for yourself and a favourite friend to share. Set the scene with the warm glow and evocative aroma of our Adare Manor signature scent candle, and pour a generous cup of our 1832 signature tea. Cut a hearty slice of Christmas pudding and dollop with options of Christmas marmalade, lemon curd, strawberry and champagne jam or our resort honey. Finish by passing around a box of handmade champagne truffles from our pastry team. Best enjoyed in front of a crackling open fire.
Your ‘A Taste of Adare Manor” hamper will be presented in a wonderful Adare Manor box and ribbon, ready to be gifted to your special someone.
We often speak of bringing a piece of Adare Manor home with you, but what about 500 pieces?
These gorgeous wooden jigsaws are designed to let you do just that. Each elegantly handcrafted puzzle is graced with an iconic portrait of the Manor House, and each has been custom carved, to offer a uniquely tactile puzzling experience. Get started with a 200 piece puzzle of our resident swans drifting past the Manor on the River Maigue or a view of the west wing from the golf course, glimmering under moonlight. If you relish a challenge, dive into this 500 piece interior view of the magnificent Great Hall.
A bespoke Adare Manor wooden jigsaw makes an unforgettable gift for the puzzle fanatics in your life. It’s a wonderful way to spend quiet hours absorbed in the beauty of this place.

Christmas is a season for treats. There’s something magical about the reappearance of certain delights that we only encounter at this time of year. Tastes tied to memory and tradition. Indulgences we dream of in the months before and after the big day.
Our resident chocolatiers have captured all that in our bespoke Christmas Chocolates. This 25 piece box of pure joy features iconic festive flavours: Gingerbread, Christmas Trifle, Milk Chocolate Orange, Hazelnut & Toffee and Eggnog. Place it under the tree for the luckiest person on your list thisyear, or hide it in your own pantry to savour piece by piece throughout the season.

Crisp leaves underfoot. Graceful branches waving overhead. Dappled light dancing across your path. And magic, waiting for you around every corner. The Woodland Walk at Adare Manor is one of the most cherished parts of the estate. Trees are central to the identity of this place, particularly the mighty oak. It gave us our name: Áth Dara, “the ford of the oak”. It also inspired our Michelin starred restaurant, the Oak Room.
So, when we asked one of Ireland’s most distinguished perfume houses to create a new, exclusive fragrance just for us, Lucy from La Bougie took our enchanted forest as inspiration. She also took elements from the wood panelling in the Oak Room, the massive fireplace in the Great Hall, and the ancient Cedar of Lebanon tree on the Manor House grounds. The resulting perfume is a tranquil blend of woody notes: Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Blonde Oak and Palo Santo, overlaid with cashmere musks and a spicy hint of saffron.
Give them the gift of anticipation. An Adare Manor voucher is a promise of future joy, a gift that begins as something to look forward to, turns into an experience to savour, and lasts forever in the form of favourite memories.
Our showstopping Adare Manor voucher box turns your gift into an event in itself. Inspired by the ancient heraldry of the Manor House, it makes an immediate impression of grandeur and delight. The front of the box boasts finely carved details of the manor house, welcoming you into the Adare Manor family. It is inscribed with the Latin motto “Quae Sursum Volo Videre”, which translates to “I wish to see what is beyond.” This saying, with all its aspiration, ambition, and anticipation, is at the heart of the Adare Manor experience, inscribed on the walls of the manor house and enshrined in our own promise: “Beyond Everything.”
Opening the voucher box is an immersive, tactile experience. It has a pleasing weight and presence and comes with its own bespoke Adare Manor bag and tissue paper: the first layers of mystery and hints of what is to come. Then, the sleeve slides off to reveal the embossed craft box: a thing of beauty. Finally, the two doors of the box swing open like the grand historic doors of the Manor House to reveal the gift within.
The voucher box is available in monetary values from €100 and can be used toward a range of exclusive experiences.
