The Women's Irish Open will be held at Dromoland Castle later this year. 

The tournament returns for the first time in a decade to the European Tour schedule in 2022.

It was last held in 2012, when European Solheim Cup captain Catriona Matthew prevailed at Killeen Castle.

The return of the tournament will see the tour pitch up at the Clare parkland from September 22nd to 25th.

Leona Maguire - who recently won her first LPGA Tour title - is expected to headline the field.

“We are delighted to see the Women’s Irish Open return to the LET Schedule in 2022," said Alexandra Armas, the Chief Executive of the Ladies European Tour.

"It is our objective that all the players who want to come and play on the LET can make a living from golf.

"This means more tournaments, bigger prize funds as well as increased TV coverage.

"We are grateful to Dromoland Castle and the Irish Government for their support in enabling the Women’s Irish Open return to the LET in 2022 after a 10-year absence."

Managing Director at Dromoland Castle, Mark Nolan, added: “We are absolutely thrilled that Dromoland Castle will play host to this year’s Women’s Irish Open.

"The return of women’s professional golf to Ireland is hugely important to the further development of women’s golf in Ireland.

"All of us at Dromoland Castle are delighted to be able to support women’s golf and look forward to extending our legendary hospitality and showcasing the estate’s world-class facilities to Europe’s top golfers.

"At Dromoland, we are also  continuously striving to improve our environmental practices and are delighted to confirm that our aim is to deliver the most green and sustainable tournament in Ireland.”

It will be the first women's professional golf tournament held in the Republic of Ireland since 2012.

The ISPS Handa World Invitational - presented by Niall Horan's Modest! Golf Management - will take place at Antrim's Galgorm Castle in August.
