DUBLIN – (Staff and Wire Service Report) – Ireland will host the Ryder Cup for the second time when the 2026 competition takes place at Adare Manor in County Limerick, the European Tour announced Thursday.
Team Europe scored a lopsided victory the last time the event was held in Ireland in 2006, beating the United States 18 1/2 to 9 1/2 at the K Club near Dublin.
The announcement comes on the heels of Irishman Shane Lowry’s victory at The Open Championship at Royal Portrush last weekend.
“We are delighted to announce The 2026 Ryder Cup will be staged in Ireland at Adare Manor which is a world class venue, both in terms of the golf course and the wider resort facilities,” European Ryder Cup director Guy Kinnings said in a statement.
“Irish golf fans are rightly recognized as some of the most knowledgeable and passionate in the world, as was shown during Shane Lowry’s emotional Open Championship triumph at Royal Portrush on Sunday, there was no question in our minds that the time was right.”
The Ryder Cup will be played at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin in 2020, Marco Simone in Rome in 2022 and Bethpage Black in New York in 2024.
