Adare Manor receives five-star award recognition from Forbes Travel Guide

The five-star Adare Manor has made the Forbes Travel Guide annual list which is the only independent, global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas

Adare Manor has been awarded a Five-Star rating by Forbes’ Travel Guide – the only independent, global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants, and spas, and creator of the original Five-Star luxury hotel rating system.

Ireland’s leading Manor resort, and host of the 2027 Ryder Cup, has been awarded the coveted accolade following strict evaluation on over 500 rigorous standards which test the resort on multiple criteria from distinctive dining experiences to luxurious beds, intuitive guest care and supreme service. 

In compiling the prestigious annual list, Forbes Travel Guide’s skilled inspectors visit each venue in person, anonymously as a typical guest evaluating experiences based on this strict set of criteria.   Over 2,000 properties are evaluated with only the very best being awarded the Five-Star rating. Providing reviews and ratings for more than 60 years, Forbes Travel Guide is the oldest travel guide in the US and its inspection process is regarded as the gold standard in hospitality.




Speaking today, Adare Manor’s General Manager Brendan O’Connor said:

“We are incredibly proud to have been awarded the globally recognised Five-Star rating from Forbes Travel Guide. As a global authority on luxury hospitality, receiving a Five- Star rating from Forbes Travel Guide is a wonderful and profound endorsement of the Adare Manor experience and the passion and commitment of our staff. The rigorous focus of the Forbes Travel Guide on exceeding expectations is a marvelous affirmation of our ethos to offer guests an unrivalled and exceptional experience. I would like to congratulate all of our colleagues at Adare Manor on their contribution to the hotel receiving such recognition from a  hallmark of the international hospitality industry.”
