Situated in the very centre of the famous, picturesque village of Adare & just a ten minute drive from Limerick City, The Dunraven Arms has been welcoming guests for over 200 years. Originally an Old Coach House, the heritage and history of the hotel is very much cherished. Matched with old-fashioned hospitality, the Dunraven Arms has retained its charming old-world atmosphere & ambience, while discreetly affirming itself as one of the Southwest’s premier 4 Star hotels. Behind this charming exterior lies an attractively extended & professionally run 86 bedroom hotel, which boasts a Health and Leisure Centre with 17-Metre Swimming Pool, and extensive equestrian facilities.
Encapsulating the old-world setting of the Dunraven Arms, all guestrooms at the hotel have been individually styled with sumptuous fabrics and elegant, antique furnishings.
Guestrooms are complete with private dressing rooms and spacious ensuite bathrooms. Junior Suites (included as standard on Authentic Ireland’s ‘Suite Affair’ tour) offer an added luxury of antique four poster and half-tester canopied beds.

Adare is a quaint picturesque place, lined with traditional thatched-roof cottages. Snuggled in a wooded and lush countryside setting, Adare is widely regarded as being Ireland’s prettiest and most unique village. Situated on the river Maigue, a tributary of the Shannon river, Adare (Gaelic name: “Ath Dara” – the “ford of the oak” – from the combination of water and woodland) dates back, at least, to the early 13th century. Adare Village has a rich wealth of heritage, as well as architectural and scenic beauty. Two groups of world famous, ornate, thatched cottages line part of the village’s broad main street, punctuated with beautiful stone buildings, medieval monasteries and ruins. Situated in the centre of County Limerick, with just 15 minutes from Limerick City and 45 minutes from Shannon Airport, Adare Village is an ideal base from which to explore County Limerick’s many visitor attractions, such as Lough Gur and King John’s Castle.
