Adare Manor has added to its growing list of accolades after being named the 2020 IAGTO European Golf Resort of the Year and collecting the Irish Hotel Experience Award at this year’s International Association of Golf Tour Operators awards.
The awards, which took place in Marrakech, Morocco, honour the best in golf tourism.
Adare Manor’s new title of European Golf Resort of the Year recognises the renovation of the entire resort in 2016 and 2017, and the dedication of the team to offer guests an unforgettable experience at one of the world’s best golf courses.
The recognition coincides with a historic year for golf in Ireland. In late July, Irishman, Shane Lowry won the Open Championship at Royal Portrush – the first time Ireland has hosted the event in 68 years. Just a week late, the JP McManus-owned Adare Manor Resort was named the host venue for the 2026 Ryder Cup.
Adare Manor CEO, Colm Hannon says “it’s an honour to be recognised by IAGTO and golf tour operators globally. It continues to be an incredible year for us at Adare Manor and Irish golf in general; we look forward to welcoming many more international visitors to our hotel and golf course in the lead up to the 2026 Ryder Cup.
“Achieving this award is a testament to the entire team here, who are fully committed to providing a first-class service to all of our guests. Our goal is to offer a complete golf experience for every guest, that will leave them with long-lasting memories and a desire to return again.”
Meanwhile, IAGTO President and Chief Executive, Peter Walton says “the reopening of The Golf Course at Adare Manor in April 2018 has received global recognition, and our IAGTO golf tour operators have clearly been blown away by the unforgettable experience that this resort undoubtedly delivers. Adare Manor are worthy winners indeed.”
