Will Adare Manor Be The Best Golf Resort In The U.K. And Ireland?



Set on an 842-acre estate, Adare Manor in Limerick has been one of the leading five-star hotels in Ireland since it was converted into a hotel in the 1980’s. Now it is aiming to also become one of the leading golf resorts in Europe.

The Neo-Gothic castle, sitting on land about the size of New York’s Central Park, was built to be the family seat of the 2nd Earl of Dunraven in the mid 19th Century. It is currently closed for the largest renovation of its kind in Ireland and is due to reopen in the late autumn 2017.

The new general manager came from Scotland’s Gleneagles — one of the leading golf resorts in the U.K. — and the new golf course is being designed by Tom Fazio, a world-renowned designer. No other living designer has more credits on Golf Digest’s list of America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses and Golf Week’s collection of America’s Best.

The golf course is surrounded by woodlands and includes a 14-acre lake and The River Maigue. Fazio is planning to restructure the course to make it seamlessly blend with the grounds as if it’s always been there. He also respects and wants to deliver the commitment of the local owners — the McManus family — has for the region.

Their ambition to create one of the best golf courses in Europe was made clear when they announced that Fazio would be the person in charge. The manicured look will match the historic grandeur of the Manor House. In addition to overseeing new roadways and infrastructure for world-class tournaments, Fazio will be responsible to come up with the design strategy with major professional golf events in mind.  

Colm Hannon, CEO of Adare Manor, says, “The new Adare Manor will have a golf course that will position itself as one of the leading parkland golf courses in the British Isles and the Unites States. The level of presentation will be comparable to any of the top golf courses in the states that Tom Fazio has created.”  

But are there any other reasons why visitors would find Adare Manor attractive?

First of all, the location. The affluent Limerick county gives the visitors a “town and country” kind of experience. Even during the Great Famine in the mid 19th century the town managed to survive the extreme hunger and poverty thanks in part to  the construction work at Adare Manor. The harmonious relationship between the Manor House and villagers generated employment. These days the quaint village has a mix of high-end and artisanal shops, restaurants and cafes as well as two abbeys.
