Need a break from all the great Irish food? This is a good option. Right on the main drag in the old part of town. Friendly staff, adult beverages, very good food. We had a 12" pizza and salad. Shared it thank goodness, large portions. Pizza tasted like it was from wood fired oven, not greasy at all. Salad was large with a good variety of veges.
A very nice place to stop, shop in the gift shops, use the rest rooms, get something to eat and get acquainted with Adare. Right outside the door is a beautiful church that was being prepared for a wedding, later that day. Flowers and vines were being added to the church columns, providing a nice decorative touch. The choir was practicing and their voices were exquisite. I'm sure that wedding was a beautiful event. Down the road, a very short distance from the Adare Heritage Centre, are a number of thatched roof buildings that are a treat to see. It's amazing what can be done with materials at hand, when a problem needs to be solved. Thatch was available as the material and rain protection was the problem. Thatch material was utilized to solve the weather problem. Thatch provided for a long term solution to the problem and provided a decorative application of the material. Thatch isn't used much anymore due to it flammability issues. Adare is a beautiful town and the Heritage Centre is a wonderful jumping off point to begin your exploration of the town.
