Adare village is regarded as being one of Ireland's prettiest and most picturesque village. It is a wonderful, unique place to visit, steeped in history dating back to 1200ad. In the early 19th century, the Earl of Desmond, laid the plan for the existing streets and townhouses of Adare.
Today, Adare village is an architectural wealth of scenic beauty. The mix of centuries is blended into everyday life as some of the thatched cottages are home to arts and crafts shops. The main street of Adare is punctuated with beautiful stone buildings, original thatched cottages, medieval monastries and ruins and the picturesque village park.
