The Ryder Cup will return to Ireland for the first time since 2006.

Ireland will host the Ryder Cup for the first time in 20 years when the biennial showpiece heads to Adare Manor in 2026.

European Tour bosses confirmed the Limerick course as Ireland's first host venue since the K Club in 2006.

The Irish government agreed a deal with tournament chiefs to host the clash between Europe and the United States, hot off the success of Royal Portrush staging The Open.

Ryder Cup Europe confirmed the coup via its official twitter account on Thursday afternoon.

Irish sport minister Shane Ross hailed Adare Manor's newly-won Ryder Cup host status, saying: "Its return in 2026 will generate enormous focus on Ireland and the golfing and tourist attractions we have on offer."

Northern Ireland's Royal Portrush last week hosted The Open for the first time in 68 years, and the tournament's overwhelming success has handed the island of Ireland an immediate boost.

That feel-good factor was hoisted by home favourite Shane Lowry sweeping his maiden major title, and now Irish golf has received another shot in the arm.
