Adare Golf Course

Adare Golf Course- An Excellent Irish Course and Place to Stay

Adare Golf Course, located only 25 miles from Shannon Airport in southwest Ireland, is a great spot to play a round of golf on a magnificent Irish course.  Additionally perhaps you will stay at the adjacent Adare Manor, merely a quick walk from the course.  This 18-hole Championship Course launched in 1995 was the last major golf course made by Robert Trent Jones Sr is touted as among his finest projects.

 

The front nine works around a 14 acre body of water and the whole course prominently brings into play the River Maigue.  I played here a couple of years ago at a time of year, early June, that the Irish will tell you is when the island is at its most brilliant emerald.  But the mature trees, water and parkland setting will make it a memorable game of golf if you plan to play here.

The Adare Manor Hotel is a Converted Old Castle

But there is however a lot more than golf.  The Adare Manor Hotel is a complete place to stay, as the accommodations are wonderful plus the restaurant certainly first-rate.  The earliest construction was built on the site around the 1720s, and in 1832 labor began on the present magnificent building.  It was constructed around the older structure which had been subsequently torn down around 1862.

Over the years it slowly and gradually fell into poor shape as a result of the expensive upkeep, and in 1984 the building was sold as well as contents to the American businessman Tom Kane.  While transforming it into the five star hotel that it is, and he has bought back a number of the invaluable artifacts that had been sold by the former owner.  The Manor Hotel has been chosen Ireland’s leading hotel at the World Travel Awards in the years 2010-2012, as well as the world’s leading boutique golf resort in 2012.

 

The Village of Adare is within Walking Distance

I would strongly recommend playing Adare golf course and staying at the Manor Hotel.  They run deals throughout summer that are really attractive.  The village of Adare is within walking distance, and it happens to be a captivating Irish town.  Renowned as one of Ireland’s most beautiful places, it will seem more plotted out compared to most little Irish villages.

Additionally there is the general location with Adare: located in County Limerick, it is only about ninety minutes from the Ring of Kerry.  This is a very scenic drive that isn’t real easy to traverse, but the landscape is definitely worth the driving inconvenience.   One other popular tourist attraction around an hour out of Adare will be the Cliffs of Moher, a little to the south from Galway.   At their peak they rise 700 feet over the Atlantic Ocean, and draw in about a million visitors annually.
