Who this course is best for:

A golfer who would like to play a newer parkland course, would like to play a rather long and challenging course with a touch of an American feel.


Many believe that you go to Ireland to play links golf only.  Our advice is to forget that thought, and schedule your Irish golf tour to include golf at Adare Manor!

Famed Irish businessman JP McManus bought Adare Manor and closed it for about two years and spent tens of millions renovating, well, everything.  He gave Tom Fazio essentially a limited budget to build a world class, major championship golf course which opened in 2018 and already has been selected to host the 2026 Ryder Cup.

How good is it?  Some of our first Pioneer Golf visitors remarked “lets just stay here all week” and many have compared the course and conditioning to Augusta National. The resort and golf services are so opulent that perhaps it warrants a “six-star plus” rating. Many believe it has already ascended to the best golf resort in the world.

The course, which features Sub Air green systems and extensive sand capping under each fairway, can be played in the wettest Irish weather. At par 72, the course can stretch from the red tees at 5,120 yards to the Gold tees at 7,509 yards.  Visiting gents will normally utilize the 6,505 yard white tees.

No golf course in the British Isles has such perfect conditioning.  The fairways and greens are immaculate. The design has a nice balance of wide flowing fairways and devilish greens intermingled with a high degree of risk and reward. Adare Manor will be a superb Ryder Cup venue in 2026!

Throughout the layout are beautiful stone bridges over the River Maigue, frequent backdrops of the stately Adare Manor hotel, and enough photo opportunities to satisfy any shutterbug!

Being only 30 minutes from Shannon Airport, Adare Manor is a great place to start or end your southwest Ireland golf package on a high note!  In summary, golf at Adare Manor is as good as it gets! Six-star plus?  We think so!  Click here for a Ireland Golf Package including golf at Adare Manor!
