We have also made a commitment to achieve GBAC STAR accreditation. In addition, we have a dedicated team of Resort COVID-19 Ambassadors coordinating our response, and this team will continue to oversee the implementation of all guidelines and measures required across the entire resort. In the current environment, we want to provide as much assurance as possible for our team and guests visiting the resort.”

COVID-19 Response:  During the property’s temporary closure, Adare Manor continued to support the local community by providing over 200 daily meals to University Hospital Limerick for the wonderful frontline staff and 70 meals daily to the local community to those that were cocooned and did not have family close by to assist them. Onsite, as part of its ongoing welfare initiatives to protect the health and wellbeing of its team and guests, the resort has introduced further measures, including new body temperature monitoring technology which can accurately calculate temperature to 0.3 of a degree, detecting elevated temperatures with no interruption to the individual. The thermal camera technology is installed in highly occupied areas of the resort, such as entry points.  They have also appointed a team of Resort COVID-19 Ambassadors to assist with the implementation of protocols to help ensure a safe and comfortable environment for guests and the Adare Manor team across the property. In addition, Adare Manor has implemented the highest standards of cleaning and safety and has committed to the GBAC STAR™ Facility Accreditation Programme, implementing the most stringent protocols for cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention on the resort. This is the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response and recovery accreditation. To achieve GBAC STAR™ accreditation, Adare Manor will demonstrate compliance with the program’s 20 core elements, which range from standard operating procedures and risk assessment strategies to personal protective equipment and emergency preparedness and response measures. All updated protocols and safety guidelines will be updated online.

Adare Manor will continue to protect the health and well-being of their team and their families, guests and the local community of Adare against the spread of this virus.
