Adare’s Thatched Cottages


In the early 19th century, the Earl of Dunraven, laid the plans for the existing streets and townhouses of Adare. The original thatched cottages were built in the 1820’s and these were the homes of people employed on the Dunraven Estate; on the farm, in the Manor House and in the cigarette factory.

Adare was renowned for the cultivation of the tobacco crop under the auspices of the 4th earl of Dunraven, who had a factory, the Adare Cigarette Company, situated on his estate. The firm employed c. 70 people in grading the leaves into five different categories consistent with their excellence, each being used for a special brand of tobacco.
