How one of the bedrooms in Adare Manor could look, after the multi-million euro transformation is complete in 2017

OVER 1,300 lots have been announced for sale in the Adare Manor public auction this week.

The auction catalogue is now available to view online, and will be continually updated throughout the week, prior to the two-day auction this Thursday and Friday, which is expected to be well attended.

Everything including the kitchen sink – in fact several double sink units - will be up for grabs in this auction, with the public clamouring to claim a piece of its history, as the hotel closed its doors last week as they commence a refurbishment worth in the region of over €30m.

You can register for this auction at the sale, or avail of internet live bidding through www.easyliveauctions.com. 

The refurbishment will enhance all areas of the resort, with new designs from acclaimed architects, Reardon Smith, and interior designers, Richmond. 

The plans, approved last week by the local authority, will include the construction of an additional bedroom wing, bringing the total room count to 104 bedrooms, while the addition of a new ballroom, with a capacity of 350 people catering for events and international conferences.

The enhancements will also include a new state of the art spa, pool and relaxation area, boardroom and cinema. 

Plans are also in place for a complete transformation of the golf clubhouse with local architects, Michael Healy and Partners.

While on the golf course, world-renowned golf course architect Tom Fazio will assist with improvements to make the course one of the finest Parkland courses in Europe. The 800 acres of parkland, walled gardens and walking trails will be improved.
