Ireland confirmed as host nation for 2026 Ryder Cup
Adare Manor in County Limerick has been chosen to host the 46th Ryder Cup, the biennial men’s golf competition between teams from Europe and the United States.
The Ryder Cup 2026 will be staged in Ireland for the second time, 20 years after The K Club hosted the 2006 contest when Team Europe – under the captaincy of Ian Woosnam and featuring three Irishmen who would go on to captain Europe over the next decade; Darren Clarke, Padraig Harrington and Paul McGinley – memorably defeated the United States by a record margin of 18½-9½.
Adare Manor, which was extensively renovated two years ago, hosted the Irish Open in 2007, a tournament won by Padraig Harrington two months before he went on to clinch the first of his two successive Open Championship titles at Carnoustie.
The Irish Open was staged again at Adare Manor the following year in 2008 when Englishman Richard Finch triumphed.
