Towns of Limerick
Adare —County Limerick
Adare, probably Ireland?s prettiest village owes its reputation to its setting in the woods among rich quiet farmlands by the River Maigue that runs through Ireland?s Golden Vale. Thatched cottages line broad streets. With the town?s quality restaurants and pubs, its three ruined abbeys, its plentiful fishing areas, its annual festivals, Adare draws overseas and Irish tourists alike. Adare is a favoured wedding location for couples from all over the world. It is located 18km from Limerick City and 42km from Shannon Airport on the main N21 route from Limerick to Kerry.
