Adare Heritage Centre reviews
Stop here as a first call, and for your ‚urgent‘ call, and more! The toilets were even open during most of 2020, what a relief, and so was the café with outdoors seating. In more normal days... more »
Multiple shops offering a variety of wares and a small restaurant, well-priced. Employees were very welcoming. more »
Booked a tour there and enjoyed the shops that were open. Lovely restaurant Dovecot. Super homemade coffee cake. more »
Need a break from all the great Irish food? This is a good option. Right on the main drag in the old part of town. Friendly staff, adult beverages, very good food. We had a 12" pizza and salad. Shared it thank goodness, large portions. Pizza tasted like it was from wood fired oven, not greasy at all. Salad was large with a good variety of veges.
A very nice place to stop, shop in the gift shops, use the rest rooms, get something to eat and get acquainted with Adare. Right outside the door is a beautiful church that was being prepared for a wedding, later that day. Flowers and vines were being added to the church columns, providing a nice decorative touch. The choir was practicing and their voices were exquisite. I'm sure that wedding was a beautiful event. Down the road, a very short distance from the Adare Heritage Centre, are a number of thatched roof buildings that are a treat to see. It's amazing what can be done with materials at hand, when a problem needs to be solved. Thatch was available as the material and rain protection was the problem. Thatch material was utilized to solve the weather problem. Thatch provided for a long term solution to the problem and provided a decorative application of the material. Thatch isn't used much anymore due to it flammability issues. Adare is a beautiful town and the Heritage Centre is a wonderful jumping off point to begin your exploration of the town.
Well worth a visit. There is a shop where you can actually buy one of something if you only want one. Can't remember it's name but it is just passed the church on your right as you come from Limerick. The people are lovely as usual in Ireland
Great food and lovely craft shops. Food home made and very reasonable. Great service. See Adare village too.
Great place and people. Wonderful sunny day was a lovely bonus. A beautiful village, would recommend the village and ruins tour to anyone going nearby.
