The Golf Course at Adare Manor will host the 2026 Ryder Cup. It reopened in April 2018 following a two-year reconstruction commissioned by its owners, the McManus family.
The announcement was made by Ryder Cup Europe, which is collaborating with the Irish Government. According to the company, The Ryder Cup will promote Ireland’s distinct golf tourism offering. The island destination just recently hosted The Open Championship, and showcased the prowess of professional golfer, Shane Lowry.
Good to know: Adare Manor was named Hotel of the Year by Virtuoso in 2018.
Adare Manor is no stranger to top golfers. In fact, the 2020 Ryder Cup Captain, Padraig Harrington, lent a hand to Tom Fazio and his team in designing the golf course. To celebrate its re-launching in April 2018, Lowry and Harrington were joined by four-time Major Champion, Rory McIlroy, and former Ryder Cup Captain, Paul McGinley, for a charity exhibition match.
In addition, The JP McManus Pro-Am—a golf charity event which has taken place at Adare Manor twice—will welcome professionals from all over the world, including Tiger Woods, John Rahm, Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson in July 2020. This is a chance for those looking to compete in the Ryder Cup to familiarize themselves with the course.
Adare Manor relaunched in 2017 following an extensive renovation. It was an all-encompassing endeavor, itching into every minute detail of the property.
