Adare Courthouse


Adare Courthouse, a two-storey building constructed of cut stone limestone walls and a pitched slate roof with cut limestone copings and cut limestone chimney stacks was built in 1863. It is also thought to have been a Bridewell, where prisoners were held for short terms. It has not been used as a courthouse for many years.This impressive stone building is situated at the roundabout in the centre of the village. The architect was William Fogerty and the construction was financed by the Earl of Dunraven.

The building and its associated boundary walls make a notable contribution to the village of Adare and additional significance can be attributed to this courthouse due to its close links with local history.
