Cottages rebuilt

We're coming to Ireland in May and would like to see the cottages in Adare. Does anyone know the status of the cottage repairs from the 2015 fire? Thanks for any information.

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.

Thank you Bean. My wife is very interested in seeing thatched roofed homes. We will put this on our itinerary when we travel from Doolin to Dingle in May.

The Thatch Pub is in Castleroberts in Adare - the back road parallel to the Main Street. Its on a road some of us use when the traffic in Adare is particularly busy :o)

That cottage is still for sale but under offer. Adare is still lovely and the cottages that burned down were only a small element of the main street.

As I recall some or all of those thatched roof houses on the main road were primarily or also gift shops and an really fine restaurants. Thank goodness that Aunty Lena's and Chalkes were nowhere near the flames.

Eddie, the houses that burned down were private residences. They were not commercial.
