Three of my friends and I recently vacationed at the Adare Manor Villas. The villa was very nice, spacious and comfortable, as well as being immaculately clean. This was an excellent home base for touring the southwest of Ireland. I would definitely consider staying there again and have recommended it to friends.
That said Albert, our concierge, was outstanding and crucial to our vacation having a pleasant outcome. What a lovely, dear man! He is truly the Villas’ greatest asset. We were touring the Ring of Kerry on Sunday and I stupidly left my wallet in Hickey’s traditional music shop in Sneem. I did not realize this until we stopped at the grocery store outside of Adare. I was not sure if I had lost it or been pick-pocketed. We returned to the villas and I began a series of phone calls trying to trace the wallet and notify the local Garda. I could not find the name of the music shop on the internet or through information. I cancelled my cards and tried to figure out if I had enough Euros to get through the rest of the trip without borrowing from my friends. I was very upset with myself and concerned about identity theft. The next morning I called about another issue and Albert stopped by. I ended up telling him about the wallet. He wrote down what little info I knew and was very reassuring about finding it. And find it he did – I think it was less than an hour until he located it, notified me and made arrangements for it to be sent overnight to our next stop. It turned out I had left it on the counter in the music shop and the owner, Noreen Hickey, had locked it away for safe-keeping. Thank you, Albert, you are a true gentleman.
