1826 Adare

1826 Adare – Opened in May 2013 by Wade and Elaine Murphy. A couple described by this year’s Michelin Guide, in which 1826 Adare was awarded a coveted Bib Gourmand, as “an experienced young couple”. The property offers a rustic cottage setting and chic country décor, paired with food offering freshness, simplicity and keen pricing to match. Seasonal local produce is the foundation of Wade’s food philosophy, so menus change on a monthly basis, and there are daily changing blackboard specials.

Chef Wade Murphy has worked in some of the top kitchens in London, Chicago, New York and of course Ireland. A Wexford native with a passion for food from a young age, there was never really any doubt what career path Wade would follow and to date has claimed many personal awards over his career.

Elaine herself has a vast amount of experience in the hospitality industry form Germany, USA and Australia. It was during her time as Assistant General Manager in the Fitzpatrick Hotel Group she met Wade. She returned to Ireland to take up the post of General Manager in the House Hotel, Galway and later the General Manager of HMSHost Shannon Airport.

The marriage of the two backgrounds lends itself perfectly to the award winning establishment that they have both worked so hard to create. Wade was also Commissioner General of Euro Toques Ireland from February 2013 to February 2016 and continues to sit on the Board of Commissioners, whose main objective is to protect the fine quality and flavours of food and he regularly travels around Ireland and Europe to promote this.

 

May 2013 saw the opening of 1826 Adare which he owns with his wife Elaine. His food and the standards in the restaurant have received exceptional reviews from Ireland’s top critics, such as Catherine Cleary, Tom Doorley, Lucinda O’Sullivan, Gillian Nelis and John McKenna and awards to date include – Best Restaurant in Munster 2014, 2015 & 2016 and Best Chef in Limerick 2015, 2016 & 2017. Best Restaurant Manager 2017. 1826 Adare was awarded a much coveted Bib Gourmand from the Michelin Guide to Great Britain and Ireland 2016 & 2017, something Wade considers as one of the highlights of his career to date.
