Hello, Where do you put the stress in this word?

Admirable or

admIrable

The wordreference dictionary provides both, but others tend to give only the first possibility and I'd like to know if one of the options is better than the other.

Thanks in advance.
Mr Bones.

    Even if it means "able to be admired", the stress is still on the A. I can understand you asking though.
