Easter at Adare Manor is full of the exuberance of spring. The estate is bursting with new life and new beginnings and the Manor House is full of optimism (and chocolate.)

To enhance your festivities, we have put together a joyful collection of seasonal delights for you. Whether you’re celebrating together as a family this Easter or sending a surprise gift, our new experience boxes and are the perfect way to make Easter weekend memorable.
If we could pack our award-winning Sommelier’s knowledge into a wicker basket and send it home with you, it would look a lot like this sumptuous hamper. These champagne, reds, and white wines would please the most discerning connoisseur in your life, but the true joy of this selection is that you don’t need to know anything about wine to enjoy it. We’ve done all the work for you.
We begin with an exceptional bottle of Henriot Souverain Brut Champagne followed by an elegant bottle of Tinpot Hut Sauvignon Blanc, 2020 and Greco di Tufo, 2017. Commencing the red collection is Château neuf du Pape Vaudieu, 2015 followed by Alphazeta Amarone, 2016 and a medium-full bodied Rioja Muga Reserva, 2017.
Presented in a wicker basket with luxury luggage tag and strap from Carve On leather, this wine collection could be the star of a series of springtime picnics, or you could sip them before, during, and after a sumptuous Easter feast.

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 new 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.
