“Adare Manor Golf Club is NOT Adare Golf Club”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The latter staged the Irish open, not the former. The names are counter intuitive. The latter is a long course (7453yds), and is very challenging. Water threatens the greens of most of the front nine, and you will need more than a long iron off the tees, even the amateur tees. I had a chastening experience there, but intend to hammer it next summer.

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Brilliant place for a bit of Posh Nosh. Great view of the golf course and good atmosphere.
A "Have to" visit for a lovely walk around the grounds which are well kept after having a lovely meal.

“Great golf”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

A local course adjacent to the famous Adare Manor Golf resort. While not a Robert Trent Jones Sr. course like it's neighbor the Adare golf club is as picturesque or more so and the golf is challenging. A flat and fairly open course, the holes are placed around ruins of an old chapel and abbey. Trees and some water come into play on holes with back drops that are distracting.
The cost was reasonable including club rental to the point where not golfing while visiting Ireland would have been a travesty.

“Sunshine transforms this course.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

I played Adare this week in an inter club competition and while I had been there before it had been during the winter. Sunshine transforms this course which we found to be in excellent condition, just stay out of the rough. I would highly recommend Adare to anybody who wished to play a challenging parkland course where you make use of all the clubs in your bag. The 18th hole is a great finish to a round with loads of risk/reward options. The staff were very welcoming and could not have been more helpful, the food afterwards was very welcome and the rack of lamb I had must have come from the hills of Kerry, it was melt in your mouth gorgeous. Couldn't fault anything but can highly recommend a visit.

“Do Not Have to Be a Mountain Goat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Like most of us, the coastal courses of the Mid and South - west of Ireland are some of golf's Meccas ( Waterville, Tra Li, Ballybunion, Lahinch, etc...), let us not forget Old Head. If you need a respite from the hills and confines of these courses, This is a must play. This course hosted the Irish Open in 2 consecutive years with Padraig Harrington as one of its champions. It is probably one of the closest representatives in Ireland of a US style golf course. I made it look difficult at times, but it is a very playable course and picturesque in its own right. The Adare Manor which hosts the course is a great stay whether in the Manor itself or in the multi bedroom / bathroom villas (see review). The golf staff is attentive and the 19th hole can be whatever you want it to be. I stayed in the villas which could easily handle a guys or couples retreat. The adjacent town is within parking distance within the confines of the grounds and has several restaurants and pubs worthy of visiting. The Manor itself has an excellent restaurant and a Tack Room pub of its own with Irish music almost nightly...
