 What to do around adare

We will be staying in Adare in July. I would love to hear suggestions on what to do around that area. We also will be with 2 children ages 4&6. We don't mind driving a reasonable distance for a worthwhile day trip.Thank you in advance for any responses.

 Re: What to do around adare

Adare is a great location for a lot of things. Here are some of my favorites:

Mitchelstown Caves - the kids would probably enjoy this

Bunratty Castle and Folk Park and maybe the medieval banquet or traditional night

Rock of Cashel and an evening at Bru Boru

Cahir Castle & the Swiss Cottage

Lough Derg Drive with stops in Killaloe, Tuamgraney and Portumna

Clare Glens - a great hike with waterfalls and decent paths on the Limerick/Tipperary border.

Quinn Abbey - on the way to the's a nice abbey ruin to wander around

Around Adare


I will add a bit to Corey's list.

Croom Mills (nearby Adare)
Tralee: Blennerville Windmill, steam train, Kerry the Kingdom, Aqua Dome.
Limerick: King John's Castle
Castleisland: Crag Cave (there is a children's play area).
Ballybunnion: seaside town with beaches, cliff walk and beachy fun.
Killarney: jaunting car rides, boat rides, hiking, scenic walks, Ross Castle, Muckross House, Garden & Traditional Farms.
Co. Clare: Cliffs of Moher, Loop Head, Craggaunowen Project, Aillwee Cave, Dolphin Cruise (from Kilrush), Moher Hill Open Farm & Leisure Park, Lahinch Seaworld.

That should keep you all very busy!

Let us know how it goes and what the kids enjoyed the most when you return.
