Visit Adare, Co. Limerick.

Adare, a designated Heritage Town, is one of the prettiest and friendliest villages in Ireland. It was founded in the 13th Century on the river Maigue.

Our second Irish Heritage Town to visit is a 1 hour 20 minute drive from Lisheen Castle. Although it is listed as a designated heritage town, Adare is still referred to as a village, which just reinforces the quaint character and charm of this must visit location.

The village itself was first established in medieval times near to Desmond Castle which was built in the 13th century, however the current architecture of the main street is largely from the early 19th century thanks to the Dunraven family. Leading up to the construction of the Gothic Adare Manor in 1831.

There is so much to see in this picturesque village including monastic sites such as the Franciscan Friary, the Trinitarian and Augustinian Priories, numerous historical landmarks and artifacts and of course the renowned thatched cottages and Detmar-blow cottages.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][us_btn text=”adarevillage.com Website Link >>” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwhttps%3A%2F%2Fadarevillage.com%2Fhistory%2Fhistoryhistoric-sites%2Fww.cashel.ie%2F||target:%20_blank|” color=”secondary” align=”center”][vc_empty_space][us_single_image image=”6504″ size=”medium” align=”center”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Visit Adare Village | Lisheen Castle[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Further information can be obtained by calling into the Adare Heritage Centre located on the main street.
