Adare Manor in Ireland is confirmed as the host course for the Ryder Cup 2026 on Thursday.

A deal between the Irish government and European Tour organizers brings the biennial tournament between Europe and the US to Limerick.

The event was last organized in Ireland at the K Club near Dublin in Dublin 2006.

It is assumed that the cost to the Irish government will be tens of millions of euros & # 39; s , but the benefit to the economy is estimated at more than € 160 million.

As part of the deal, which features a rubber stamp at an Irish cabinet meeting in Donegal, the future of the Irish Open is also assured until 2026.

That tournament will be held on a rotation basis between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

Irish sports minister, Shane Ross, told BBC Sport earlier this week that Shane Lowry's victory at The Open at Royal Portrush would help in his attempt to organize the event in 2026.

"Irish sport and golf is really fantastic now," said Ross, who was in Portrush for the final round on Sunday.

"We would absolutely love to see Shane turn off and other Irish players in Adare. It would be absolutely fantastic."

The County Offaly player achieved his first major success thanks to a six-fold victory over the Northern Irish links.

Lowry said his "main goal" is making his Ryder Cup debut in Padraig Harrington & team up against Americans in Whistling Straits next year.

Europe defends their title after a 17½-10½ victory over Le Golf National in Paris last year.
