Ryder Cup heading to Limerick

Updated: 23/06/2024


Adare Manor in Limerick has been confirmed as the host venue of the 2026 Ryder Cup, with Ireland set to welcome the biennial contest for just the second time.

The Ryder Cup (2020 Match Odds – USA 8/11 to win, tie 11/1, Europe 11/8) was previously held in the Emerald Isle in 2006 when the K Club hosted Europe’s memorable 18½ to 9½ victory.

Paul Casey, Darren Clarke, Luke Donald and Sergio Garcia were the heroes for Team Europe on that occasion but they may struggle to be selected when the tournament gets underway in seven years’ time.

Ryder Cup Europe have now confirmed the five-star resort will follow in the footsteps of Whistling Straits in Wisconsin (2020), Marco Simone Golf and Country Club in Italy (2022) and Bethpage Black in New York (2024).

The news comes on the back of a great week for Irish golf, with Shane Lowry winning The Open Championship at Royal Portrush (40/1 – Lowry to win the 2020 Open).

Last year’s Ryder Cup at Le Golf National in France attracted more than 270,000 fans across the week and Adare Manor owner, JP McManus, is relishing the chance to showcase one of Ireland’s finest facilities.

He told Ryder Cup.com: “I am delighted that the prestigious Ryder Cup will return to Ireland.  We were very happy that Adare Manor was chosen as the venue for this world-renowned tournament in 2026 and we look forward to welcoming our worldwide visitors.

“It is a wonderful tribute to the many great Irish golf ambassadors and success stories Ireland has had in golf over the years and a nice follow on from Shane’s momentous Open win on Sunday in Portrush.  The nation was behind Shane, it was a great achievement and very well deserved.

“I am confident that the people of Ireland will get behind The Ryder Cup and take the opportunity to showcase Ireland on the world stage and ensure that The 2026 Ryder Cup will be an outstanding success.”
