Limerick’s Adare Manor has been named as the venue of the 2026 Ryder Cup this afternoon after the Irish government and the European Golf Tour agreed a deal.
The JP McManus owned golf course was revamped in recent years and has attracted the sport’s very best since it reopened last year.
Ireland has only once before hosted the Ryder Cup, when Europe, captained by Wales’ Ian Woosnam, saw off the American challenge at The K Club in Kildare.
Hosting the tournament is likely to bring huge money to the region with early estimates say that the economy could be boosted to the tune of over €150 million.
The news comes hot on the heels of Shane Lowry’s Open Championship victory in Portrush last week.
The JP McManus Charity Pro-Am takes place at Adare Manor next year and will be seen as a warm up for the Ryder Cup in 2026.
