Golf star Rory McIlroy wakes up in lavish Adare Manor

ONE OF the world’s most celebrated golfers Rory McIlroy woke up to the stunning views of the redeveloped and renovated Adare Manor in Limerick this Friday morning. 

McIlroy shared a picturesque photo of the sunlit Manor gardens and the new golf course with his 1.4m followers on Instagram. 

Though the new course is not set to open until spring 2018, there is no doubt the sports star will have a sneak peak of the facility. 

This follows the launch of Adare Manor last month, which saw other sporting greats experience the resort, including Shane Lowry, Padraig Harrington and Paul McGinley. 

The 28-year-old star, who is married to Erica Stoll, took part in the Pro-Am in 2010. 

The luxury hotel and resort temporarily closed its doors early last year to facilitate the extensive restoration, refurbishment and expansion works.

The newly designed hotel now boasts a new 42-bedroom wing bringing the total number of rooms to 104. 

A new ballroom with a capacity for 350 guests has been added, catering for weddings, events and international conferences – all have been clad in limestone, complementing the architectural detail of the original Manor House.
