The Oak Room at Adare Manor is recognised with a Michelin star.
Two years following its highly anticipated debut, The Oak Room at Adare Manor has received Michelin star recognition, becoming the only starred restaurant in County Limerick. Head of Wines & Beverage Jurica Gojevic was also awarded the new Sommelier Award 2020 at the Michelin Guide to Great Britain & Ireland ceremony in London on Monday October 7th.
As one of Ireland’s leading five-star hotels, Adare Manor continues to set the benchmark for the Irish hospitality experience, with its exceptional culinary program at the forefront. As the property’s only fine-dining restaurant, The Oak Room provides a genuine taste of the best that contemporary Irish cuisine has to offer while inviting guests to explore the vast bounty of Ireland.
Helmed by Head Chef Michael Tweedie — originally from Devon and runner-up for 2017’s San Pellegrino Young Chef Award — The Oak Room plays a leading role in redefining Irish fare in an unparalleled setting overlooking the River Maigue. Recognition by the world’s premier culinary authority has always been the vision. Even before Adare Manor opened its doors, the pre-opening food and beverage team embarked on a nine-day gastronomy road trip to source the country’s best produce from local purveyors and artisans, and have continued doing so with a more recent five-day trip around the country in September 2019. An essential step in building The Oak Room’s core pillar of tasting the terroir, these trips have become an inspiration for the refined dishes on the menu that celebrate the country’s vibrant landscape.

Speaking about the accolade, The Oak Room Head Chef Michael Tweedie;
Since our initial debut nearly two years ago, we have worked so hard to bring The Oak Room to where it is today. Our entire kitchen and front of house teams have worked very closely together to create a warm and hospitable fine-dining environment. We are so, so proud of being recognised by Michelin today and it’s a testament to how we, as a team, have grown along the way. Listening to our guests and working so closely with the community of producers that we have created across the island has been central to The Oak Room becoming a Michelin star restaurant. I couldn’t be prouder. I’m also delighted to see Juri acknowledged with this fantastic new award of Michelin Sommelier 2020.”
