First Look: Inside Adare Manor's multi-million euro makeover

Adare Manor will re-open this November after almost two years of restoration and expansion works.

This video (above) provides a look inside.

The five-star resort, set in Adare, Co. Limerick resort, closed in Janaury 2016 for an extensive programme of conservation and upgrades, including the addition of a new, 40-bedroom wing and a ballroom with capacity for around 350 guests.

Since then, a new spa and pool have been added, along with a cinema and major improvements to its 840-acre estate and golf course.

The resort is set to re-open this November, despite damage sustained during a clubhouse fire this April, with rooms priced from €325 on its website.

Fancy pushing the boat out? Signature suites are priced from €1,995 a night in November, while a Dunraven Stateroom will set you back €1,095.

Adare Manor Hotel & Golf Resort is owned by businessman JP McManus, his wife Noreen and the McManus family, who bought the hotel and estate for a reported €30 million in 2015.

Recruitment days have seen almost 1,000 potential employees screened and interviewed, while Dubliner Paul Heery has been appointed general manager.

The refurbishment budget has not been revealed.
