We stayed in Adare for two days for a wedding and were so happy to end up at the Dunraven Arms. It is deceptively big as from the outside it just has a small, country ivy-covered look about it. The rooms are truly wonderful: big, comfortable beds, lots of light and garden views, every amenity you need and a two-part bathroom which makes sharing easy.
We had our 1 and 3 year-olds with us and they were well taken care of with baby cot, indoor swimming pool (which even had swim nappies available for sale! and pool toys to use) and high chairs in the bar restaurant and regular restaurant.
The hotel is, of course, walking distance for everything in the small village of Adare. There is also a beautiful and big park almost right across the street from the hotel which we enjoyed having a stroll in.
My only suggestion would be: given the number of kids who also stay at the hotel, it would have been great if just a tiny part of the large gardens could maybe have a little playground/ swing set on it. I found it hard that there was nothing like that nearby and I think the kids (and parents!) would really benefit from a little place to release energy while staying at the hotel.More
