The new restaurant, designed by David Collins Studio, will host functions as well as serve lunchtime and evening meals and boasts as decadent an interior as the manor, with floor-to-ceiling hand-painted artwork, velvet upholstery and an enormous antique chandelier. Meanwhile, Lyrath Estate in Co Kilkenny also welcomes a new eatery this month with the opening of its 120-seater casual dining bistro, The Grill. For more visit adaremanor.com and lyrath.com
