Adams & Butler  - Going Back To Our Roots...         
 

When I had originally set up Adams & Butler back in 2003, our sole specialization was exclusive-use properties in Ireland and Britain, and we were probably the only travel company who knew those elegant and charming properties really well. 

As far back as January this year, almost pre-Covid, and indeed to a lesser extent over the last few years, we have noticed a growing trend for this type of property.  It is so much easier to customise with a rental property which satisfies the clients' exact requirements more than a hotel, and there is one for every type of particular delectation.  

Rental properties whether a castle, country estate, manor house, beach house or townhouse, are like Lego, you simply add on the services such as cleaning, chef, butler or driver as you require, or not, if that is the case.  Especially now, as clients are not only more concerned with limiting the amount of interaction with others, but are also experiencing overwhelming desires to be cocooned with their loved ones, exclusive-use rentals satisfy both those conflicting longings.  

And Adams & Butler has grown since those earlydays, we now have access to many spectacular properties all over the world and especially in Africa.

Here is a small selection of some that we work with in Ireland.

Best wishes and take care,

Ballymote House
Ballymote House

Ballymote House is a truly authentic West of Ireland property. The surrounding area is steeped in history. The medieval town dates back to the 1300s when the Normans constructed the nearby Ballymote Castle.  Ballymote House can host 14-20 people with 7 rooms available in the 18th Century manor house and a cottage closeby that can also fit another 8 people. It is the perfect location for hosting a multigenerational gathering. Ballymote House can also arrange an array of activities on the estate grounds. Falconry is a must-do experience as participants of all ages love it. The house is surrounded by forests with sheep and lambs grazing the 1000-acre property. Perfect for getting away from it all in a bucolic setting.  This property is extremely good value.  Unbelievable.

Devonshire Castle
Devonshire Castle

Devonshire Castle is situated in Waterford and was originally constructed in the late 11
th Century. The history surrounding this castle is magnificent: from walls marked by Cromwellian cannon balls to the days it was owned by Sir Walter Raleigh - the man who brought potatoes and tobacco to Ireland - even JFK has spent a couple of nights in this exclusive castle. It sleeps 8 to 12 in an intimate environment or up to 27 for a bigger party. Devonshire Castle also comes with a butler who has been serving the castle for 35 years. Devonshire Castle would be one of the most luxurious and grander options in our portfolio of rentals. Any traveller would feel like a true Earl while staying at this magnificent property: it's the Irish home of a British Duke! Adams & Butler can also organise a medieval banquet that is always a hit with multigenerational families.
