The Adare Manor Hotel and Golf Resort and its affiliated championship standard golf course can be found in County Limerick in the South West of Ireland. The small village of Adare can also be found nearby. Overlooked by the majestic 18th century Adare manor the course is set in a vast estate and lies next to the meandering River Maigue, this truly is a stunning setting in which to enjoy a round of golf and the hotel here makes it a perfect destination for a golfing getaway.
Designed by the renowned Robert Trent Jones Snr the course was first opened for play in 1995 and is a classic example of one of his works. The combination with the luxury of the rest of the resort works effortlessly and it is clear to see why this is such a popular and prestigious destination for players from across the globe.
This 18-hole parkland style course measures 6815 metres from the back tees and has a par of 72. Features here are as extensive as they are grand and they combine to make an interesting yet challenging round for many. Expect cloverleaf bunkers, ample water hazards as well as Jones’ signature American style mounding. Natural features have also been blended seamlessly into the design here to create a stunning course that has played host to numerous championships across the years, including the Irish Open on multiple occasions.
Like the course, the facilities here are excellent and include a bar and restaurant housed in the courses own clubhouse. There are also full shower and locker facilities as standard and the professional golf shop is well-equipped to meet the purchasing needs of all types of golfers. PGA professionals are also on hand to offer advice and tips on purchases. Away from the golfing aspect the rest of the facilities at the resort are also of the highest quality and include a Spa as well as many dining options.
Although it is part of a resort the tee times for visitors here have good general availability and are well distributed over the course of the day. Green fee rates are reasonable considering the high quality of the course and its facilities although a number of special offers are available for visitors wanting to combine their play with a stay at the attached hotel.
Getting to the resort is relatively straightforward and the large city of Limerick is less than 20 km and has numerous transport links to the rest of Ireland as well as further afield. It should be noted that there are two golf courses in the areas with very similar names and that confusion between the two can sometimes occur however as this is a resort this is the easier of the two to find. The obvious accommodation option here is the affiliated luxury hotel which boasts a number of options for visitors and has hospitality which is hard to beat.

Average rating obtained byThis rating for Adare Manor Golf Club. is the average of 10 ratings obtained from www.top100golfcourses.co.ukI had been looking forward to playing Adare for some time and got the chance last weekend. While it is undoubtedly a very fine and pretty course, with an excellent routing of holes around the estate, the conditioning of the course left a lot to be desired. I appreciate that this is still early season and that the Spring has been unseasonably dry and not conducive to growth, but we were shocked by the state of not only the greens but the teeing areas and fairways. The place looked unkempt, frankly - which is perhaps indicative of the rumours regarding Adare Manor's finances (or lack thereof) at the moment. I know that greens are spiked at this time of year, but other courses have done the same and are not in nearly as bad shape. It is such a shame because the course itself, but for a handful of nondescript holes on the front nine, really is beautiful. A lot is said about the signature holes (15, 16 and 18) in and around the River Maigue, but less is said about the holes at the back of the course, including my personal favourites 12 and 13. The sense of isolation as you play these holes is wonderful and I loved the way the course rose and fell away with the natural topography. The same can be said to a slightly lesser extent about the 2nd and 3rd. All in all, I was pleased to have played the course, but the place is in urgent need of some TLC.
Average rating obtained byThis rating for Adare Manor Golf Club. is the average of 3 ratings obtained from www.1golf.euTop spot, perfect condition, hard to surpass first-class hotel in Ireland and every € value. From the back tees with wind a challenge, beautiful high bunker and perfect Greens!Clearly the hotel is very expensive, but those who want to afford Ireland at this level, must stay here and play the brilliant course. After the round in the super equipped pro shop, and invest again some dozen €, it is worth! Everyone else please pass play the village square for $30 in the next place, and then, Adare Manor remains a place where you can enjoy golf!
