John Wesley, Founder of the Methodist Church visited this area on ten occasions during these years. A strong local tradition affirms that he preached under an ash tree near the ruin of the Franciscan Abbey on at least one of these occasions. A stone now marks the place, and the Methodists hold a Field Meeting there annually.
The first Methodist chapel in Adare was built on the north side of the road to Patrickswell in the townland of Gortaganniff. The road has since been realigned, and the site is now unmarked in the Adare Manor Golf Club course. No picture of this building survives, but it was probably of the same simple style as other Methodist chapels of the period.
In this year the Countess of Dunraven laid the foundation stone of the present Methodist Church in the Black Abbey Road. The small porch was a later addition, and the Hall was added in 1970.
For more than eighty years the Methodists rented a house for their minister. In 1955 a site was purchased and a manse built on the Rathkeale Road. Part of the site was later developed as sheltered housing for the elderly, and called Embury Close. This was opened in 1988.
