O’Connor is Forbes Standards Advisor

The General Manager of Adare Manor, Brendan O’Connor, has been invited to join Forbes Travel Guide’s Standards Advisory Committee (SAC) for the 2024-2025 term. The Committee ensures that the star rating standards reflect the most up-to-date guest expectations, and committee members share their perspectives and recommendations with Forbes Travel Guide for consideration in the refinement of the standards each year. 

Adare Manor has retained its Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Rating for 2024. The Guide notes that recipients of this award “have demonstrated a unique and unwavering commitment to elevating the guest experience with staff as passionate as they are exacting in the delivery of their service”.  

Forbes Travel Guide inspectors visit hotels anonymously, evaluating their experience on a strict set of criteria and up to 500 exacting service, facility and guest experience standards. Of the over 187,000 hotels worldwide, just 342 achieved five star rating for 2024.

The Oak Room at Adare Manor has retained its Michelin Star.
