Adare Manor is a manor house located on the banks of the River Maigue in the village of Adare, County Limerick, Ireland, the former seat of the Earl of Dunraven and Mount-Earl.

Around 1785, the first Earl of Dunraven made significant alterations to Adare Manor, raising more walls and changing the entrance from the south front to the northwest side. In 1786, it was described as “a very noble structure with fine and extensive demesnes.”
Valentine Richard Quin’s earldom lasted only two years; upon his death to 1824 the title passed to Windham Henry Quin, the second Earl of Dunraven and Mount-Earl. The new Earl, who was suffering from gout and confined indoors, rebuilt his home, turning it from a classic Georgian mansion into a large Tudor Revival manor.Building the new manor involved the rebuilding, enlarging and subsequent demolition of the earlier 18th-century manor house of the Quin family. Begun in 1832, construction provided work for the people from the surrounding villagers during the potato famine.
Some of the old walls of the manor were preserved and encased in the new work, including the north and south walls of the dining room, and the walls between the hall and gallery. When the walls of the old tower were broken to form the door between the hall and gallery, a silver coin “of considerable antiquity” was discovered. The construction was still unfinished by the death of the second earl in 1850, after which the family consulted architect Philip Charles Hardwick, who “with much talent and judgment completed the south and west fronts, after his own designs, following the general plan as intended by the late Earl,” his widow wrote.
Although Lady Caroline claimed that Adare Manor was planned entirely by her husband at first, the initial architectural plans for the house were made by James and George Richard Pain. The client dispensed with their services, however, around 1838, and Lord Dunraven continued with the design of the house himself with help from English architect Lewis Nockalls Cottingham. The initial phase of construction was completed under master mason, James Connolly, together with the second Earl of Dunraven and his wife, who incorporated their favourite buildings into the design.
Augustus Pugin was hired in 1846 to design some of the interior features including the great hall. The three-storey southern range and the tower with pyramidal roof, completed by the third Earl of Dunraven between 1850 and 1862, were built to the designs of Philip Charles Hardwick.
An inscription on the east front of Adare Manor commemorates “James Conolly of Adare, mason, faithful friend and servant of the Earl of Dunraven, from AD 1831 till his death in 1852.”
The new manor was built of large blocks of grey, red and brown limestone. On the parapet of the south front, a verse from Psalms 127:1 is etched in old English characters: “Except the Lord build the house: their labour is but lost that build it.” Further verses “Love God onely,” “Honour and obey the Queen,” and “Eschew evil and do good” are carved onto the colonnade.
At the time of Griffith’s Valuation in 1868, the property was valued at only £130 (equivalent to £11,489 in 2018); in 1906 the buildings at Adare Manor were valued at just £182 (equivalent to £19,229 in 2018).
雖然卡羅琳夫人聲稱阿達爾莊園一開始是由她的丈夫完全計劃的，但最初的房屋建築計劃是由詹姆斯和喬治理查德斯蒂爾製作的。然而，在1838年左右，客戶免除了他們的服務，並且在英國建築師Lewis Nockalls Cottingham的幫助下，Lord Dunraven繼續設計房屋。建築的初始階段由大師梅森（James Connolly）和第二位鄧拉文伯爵（Dunraven）及其妻子共同完成，他們將自己喜愛的建築融入設計中。
Augustus Pugin於1846年被聘請設計一些內部設施，包括大廳。三層樓的南部山脈和金字塔形屋頂的塔樓由1850年至1862年間的第三位Dunraven伯爵完成，按照Philip Charles Hardwick的設計建造。
The building is a calendar house, featuring 365 windows and 52 chimneys, among some other design characteristics. Along the top of the building an extract of psalm 127:1 is made from carved stone: “Except the Lord build the house, then labour is but lost that built it”.
Adare Manor hotel & golf resort
The house is set on a 840-acre (3.4 km2) estate and now operates as a five-star hotel with a golf course and other accommodation on the rest of the resort. Adare Manor was voted “Ireland’s Leading Hotel” at the World Travel Awards in 2010, 2011 and 2012 and “The World’s Leading Boutique Golf Resort” in 2012.
該房屋佔地840英畝（3.4平方公里），現在是一家五星級酒店，在度假村的其他地方設有高爾夫球場和其他住宿。 Adare Manor在2010年，2011年和2012年的世界旅遊獎和2012年的“世界領先的精品高爾夫度假村”中被評選為“愛爾蘭的領先酒店”。
