JP McManus and his family have been confirmed as the new owners of Adare Manor in Co Limerick.

The five-star hotel and golf course was put on the market by CBRE last year with a guide price of €25m. 

The Co Limerick venue frequently attracts between 70 and 75% of its guests from the buoyant American market.

The resort was named Ireland's Leading Hotel at the World Travel Awards for the three years up to 2013. 

Anita Higgins, General Manager of Adare Manor, confirmed today that JP, Noreen and the McManus family are now the owners of Adare Manor.

"We look forward to working with our new owners who have previously hosted two JP Mc Manus ProAms here in the past," she added.
