Adare Manor, an historic luxury castle hotel in County Limerick, Ireland, is currently undergoing one of the country’s most expensive restoration, renovation and expansion projects, and is scheduled to reopen in September 2017.

Set in 842 acres of parkland, the Neo-Gothic property has been owned by Irish multi-millionaire JP McManus since 2015; McManus also co-owns Sandy Lane in Barbados.

The transformation, which has been spearheaded by lead architects ReardonSmith in collaboration with local architect Michael Healy and interior designers Richmond International, will include a world-class spa, situated in a secluded sanctuary within the existing Manor House.

An indoor swimming pool overlooking the River Maigue is one of the spa’s outstanding features; additional facilities include five treatment rooms, a fitness centre, relaxation area, hair salon and manicure and pedicure stations. Spa consultants are Cork-based Peigin Crowley and Diahann Buckley.

Adare Manor has announced it will partner with prestige skincare brand La Mer, making it the only La Mer Spa in the UK and Ireland, and one of 11 La Mer spas worldwide.

According to Colm Hannon, CEO of Adare Manor, "the new spa will offer exclusive treatments that will embody the luxury and timelessness of Adare Manor."

La Mer formulations based on the healing and regenerative powers of the sea. Along with a selection of bespoke treatments, the spa will feature La Mer’s most luxurious treatment, The Miracle Broth Facial. The indulgent facial incorporates Spa Broth, an exclusively pure form of La Mer’s Miracle Broth, to help re-energise, nurture and deeply hydrate.

“La Mer is excited to expand its spa business into Ireland in partnership with Adare Manor to bring the best in skincare and indulgent treatments to their guests,” said Sandra Main, La Mer global brand president.

“Adare Manor is a leading luxury destination and the spa will provide exceptional beauty treatments for the discerning guest looking for a transformative and revitalising escape.”

Outside, the golf clubhouse has been redesigned by David Collins Studio London, while renowned golf course designer Tom Fazio will oversee a comprehensive redesign of the world-class golf course.
