Ireland has this great competition called the “Tidy Towns” competition. Visitors know that if a town is listed as a current or past “Tidy Town” winner there is a good possibility that they will enjoy a visit or a pass through that town. Adare is on Ireland’s list of tidy towns. I could look up the parameters of making it on this list. But, I can tell you right now that it is because of historical buildings, lots of flowers, little traffic, and brightly painted exteriors among other things.
This is a little tip when planning your Ireland trip. Focus on tidy towns to eat in, visit, or stay in. Click here for a list of the current and past winners. For now enjoy some photos of past Tidy Town winner, Adare in County Limerick.
