The organisers of next month’s JP McManus Pro-Am in Adare have issued advice for motorists planning to drive to the two-day tournament on July 4 and 5.

Anybody in possession of a ticket cap for the star-studded event is reminded that it is still valid for this summer’s rescheduled Pro-Am.

All JP McManus Pro-Am attendees travelling to Adare Manor by car are reminded that they must pre-book car parking in advance of the event.

Alternatively, there will be a complimentary Park & Ride facility available, however, attendees must pre-register to avail of the Park & Ride. Pick up will be at Limerick Racecourse.

As there will be a heavy traffic management plan in operation, anybody traveling to Adare Manor by car who has not pre-booked parking will be asked to turn around by event marshals. There is no option to park without having pre-booked.
