Day 1 - Walking Tour & Welcome Dinner

Your tour beings at 2:00 PM at your hotel. The Dunraven Adare, your home for the next five nights, is a luxury, family-run hotel in the heart of Adare, one of Ireland’s prettiest villages. Adare’s history stretches back to the 12th century, and the hotel is one of oldest in Ireland, dating back to the 18th century. Take a guided walking tour of the town to see its beautiful historic buildings and charming thatched cottages. In the evening, enjoy a welcome drink with your group at Aunty Lena’s Bar, followed by dinner at Adare Court House; the restaurant, housed in a beautifully preserved historic structure, retains elements of its past as a civic building financed by the Earl of Dunraven, who built much of the town in the early 19th century.
