– The Adare Manor Equestrian Centre is situated on the parks’ original 1906 stables, built when the Manor was privately owned by the 2nd Earl of Dunraven.
Set in 840 acres of beautiful unspoilt Irish countryside, it provides excellent facilities in idyllic surroundings catering to all riders, from complete beginners to advanced competition.
– Lasersport clay pigeon shooting is a sport, which can be enjoyed by everyone. The players use a modified shotgun to fire an infra-red beam at clays launched from a conventional clay launcher whenever a trigger is pulled. The Lasersport control module / scoreboard generates the shotgun “bang” and when the player hits the target it reproduces the sound of a breaking clay.
An indicator on the gun instantly tells the player whether he has hit or missed the target and spectators and players can see the score of each player on a large electronic scoreboard.
– Angling, the river Maigue at Adare Manor has a good stock of wild brown trout.
– The luxury Spa offers a wide variety of treatments.
