SET ON THE grounds of one of Ireland’s most renowned five star hotels and golf resorts, Winterwood is a property that’s clearly been designed to impress.

Due to host the Ryder Cup in 2027, Adare Manor underwent extensive renovations in 2017 and is known as one of Ireland’s most luxurious wedding venues, with many high profile weddings taking place here over the years.

Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, skateboarder Tony Hawk, Irish footballer Robbie Brady and Kilkenny hurler TJ Reid are just some of the names who’ve had their nuptials or vow renewals here in recent years.

Winterwood itself was refurbished in 2013 and boasts a magnificent interior, with features including hand carved Brazilian mahogany doors, bespoke Waterford Crystal chandeliers, and marble floors.

Winterwood is a property that’s made for hosting, with the dining room offering the space to comfortably seat at least 10 people. Both the sitting room and the dining room have solid wood floors and ornate fireplaces, while picture windows provide views of the gardens. For cosy evenings in, the family room is the ideal space to unwind.

The kitchen and breakfast room is show-stopping, with mint cabinets with gold detailing, a large centre island and high end appliances including a La Cornue range cooker. A utility room and pantry provide even more space. Also on the ground floor is a spacious gym, sauna and spa room, as well as a home office and library area.

Moving to the first floor, there are five bedrooms with en suite bathrooms here, while the remaining three bedrooms are on the second floor. Each of the bedrooms are incredibly spacious, and might leave you questioning whether you’re actually staying at the hotel across the grounds. 

Completing the accommodation, the basement level is perfect for entertaining, with a wine cellar, games room and bar area here.

Outside, the grounds at Winterwood are magical. There are several patios and fountains throughout, as well as a BBQ for dining al fresco. Expansive lawns lead into a woodland, in which the previous owners planted three hundred new trees, while there’s also an orchard with a range of fruits.
