Engagements & Honeymoons

An exquisite setting for romance

These are some of life’s sweetest moments, when the world stops and everything else falls away. Share them in a setting which brims with beauty and romance, surrounded by centuries of beloved history. Adare Manor is one of the world’s most magnificent castle hotels, with a passionate and skillful team devoted to making every minute you spend here extraordinary. What better place to experience some of your most magical moments together?

Engagement

Surprise and delight; two of the loveliest emotions in the world, they are at the heart of what we do here at Adare Manor. They are also the essence of the moment when you decide to spend the rest of your lives as one. When it comes to your engagement, it makes sense to choose a place where everything has been designed to astonish and enchant you.

Plan a perfect day, one that underlines everything beautiful about your life together. Check in to one of our gorgeously restored Manor House rooms, and then slip down to the spa for some seriously indulgent relaxation and treatments by legendary wellness brand La Mer. Linger over a sparkling glass of champagne in The Drawing Room before experiencing a magnificent candlelit dinner in The Oak Room colonnade, where beautiful carvings commemorating the loving marriages of the Dunravens decorate the graceful stone arches. Take a gentle walk through the formal gardens, where a Cedar of Lebanon tree has stood steadfast for four centuries. Pause by the peacefully flowing River Maigue and take a moment to ask and answer the most important question of your life under a starlit sky.

Whatever your vision of the perfect engagement might be, our dedicated staff would be delighted to conspire with you to make your engagement an extraordinary memory to carry with you through your lives.
