Adare Manor hosted its first European Tour event in 1968 and has hosted the Ryder Cup twice before.
Newcastle-based Adare Manor is to host the 2027 Ryder Cup.
Four of the nine US states that host biennial teams of the US and Europe to battle it out on golf’s big stage are located in the Leinster heartland: Dublin, Cork, Waterford and Galway.
Founded by Ken Hutchins in 1889, Adare Manor was made a Wensleydale valley hotel in 2007 and has since hosted four leading European Tour events, the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in 2012, and in 2011 hosted the Andalucian Open and the Ted Potter Invitational.
Awarded Leisure Venue of the Year in the 2013 category, Adare is also home to the National Gala Night for the Irish Professional Golfers’ Association, and the Irish Senior Open, held at the County Meath course every June.
The Ryder Cup hosts host a major role in giving a boost to tourism across Ireland, and both the US and Europe’s Ryder Cup teams play a part.
Jack Nicklaus, among the first to produce a Ryder Cup victory, said: “I can’t imagine many places in the world that would host a Ryder Cup more successfully than Adare Manor.
“It will certainly be an exciting time to watch the championship.”
Adare Manor’s Rolex Championship is also played each year in October in partnership with Rolex.
John Brennan, the hotel’s chief executive, said: “I believe it’s great that we’re hosting the Ryder Cup again in 2027.
“After the great success of hosting the competition in 2011, we’ve had some superb European Tour events at Adare Manor in recent years and have seen the support we’ve received from local and visiting golfers.
“The last edition of the adaremenorade.com grand prix held in October was one of the best-attended events we’ve ever held here.
“We also have a great team of staff and partners behind us who are all working hard to deliver this exciting event.”
The Ryder Cup will be held at Whistling Straits near Sheboygan, Wisconsin in 2020, the inaugural Gleneagles in 2021 and will not be held in Europe again for four years.
