The Celebrations

A day full of perfect moments

The unique atmosphere and ambiance of Adare Manor offers a perfect balance of grandeur, elegance and comfort, for a wedding day that is both regal and relaxed. Its monumental scale and gothic glamour provides an unforgettable backdrop--our stunning Grand Ballroom with its sweeping staircase, marble floors, and crystal chandeliers is awe-inspiring enough for the most royal of occasions--but at its heart the Manor House is and always has been a home. A singular spirit of warmth and welcome, and the genuine dedication of our team, make this a place the perfect setting for a wedding day full of love and laughter.     

Every memorable moment of your wedding celebration at Adare Manor will be meticulously planned and flawlessly executed by our talented staff, allowing you to let go, be fully present, and savour all the wonderful experiences this day will bring.

Take your first step as a married couple down the fairytale staircase of the Grand Foyer, leading into the Grand Ballroom reception. This is a moment to pause and take it all in, just before you and your guests commence a wonderful evening of celebrations. As you greet your guests, enjoy an array of delicious canapes, created by our gifted culinary team and specially selected by you. Sip a refreshing glass of champagne or a specialty cocktail, and mingle with your favourite people in a setting of otherworldly beauty.

With a such an astonishing setting, your photographer will have a chance to capture precious images that you will cherish for the rest of your lives. Romance is woven into every corner of our 840 acre estate, with extraordinary beauty everywhere you turn: from the tranquil beauty of the formal and walled gardens to the hushed grace of the ancient Ogham stones or the ancient majesty of the 400 year old Cedar of Lebanon tree. Within the Manor House, amidst the heraldry and portraits of the noble Dunraven family, the photographs you take will immortalise the moment your own family legacy begins.

Sit down to a fabulous five course meal with your guests. Our bespoke, seasonal menus feature glorious Irish ingredients, handpicked by our culinary team from the very best local, artisan producers and suppliers. Director of Culinary Loughlin Druhan, Banqueting Manager Brian Lawlor, Banqueting Chef de Cuisine David McKane and their exceptional team will work with you before the wedding to ensure that the food you enjoy on the night is a perfect reflection of your taste. Presented with style and served with grace and charm, each course will take your guest on a journey through the treasures of the Irish countryside. As the toasts begin, your guests will lift a glass of champagne to your future happiness, and enjoy fine specially selected wine from our expert sommelier’s hand-picked collection. After the last delicious forkful has disappeared, our dedicated servers will bring out an exquisite selection of petit fours and sweets, with fresh-brewed coffee and tea: the perfect prelude to a long night of dancing and making unforgettable memories.

After a thrilling day filled with happiness, excitement and emotion, retire in style to your magnificent Stateroom, where you can relax together in peace and privacy to relive the highlights of the celebration.
