Not all the cottages were burned down, only a couple of them. There are still quite a few thatched cottages on the mainstreet that remain intact.
The last time I passed through Adare Village (New Years Eve), they were up for sale. I didn't read anything in the local press to say they had been sold. And just checking, the cottage is still for sale.
Its a great location.
Eddie, the houses that burned down were private residences. They were not commercial.
That makes it sader. Sorry.
2 were burned, one is being rebuilt and as Bean says the other is for sale .
