The K Club with its beautiful Manor House and spectacular scenery is a very special place but I must say that the majority of the large group of players from all over the world who played with me in June were disappointed at the poor condition of the course and surrounds. I am sure it would have been majestic during... More

Had the opportunity to play the K Club - Smurfit course. Needed rentals. Played with a member and his guest. The course was really in poor condition - especially the greens. The rentals were the worst we had every seen and they charged more than the rentals for the Old Course at St. Andrews. Mismatched sets and had to go... More

Stayed in the courtyard apartments adjacent to the main hotel in April 2015. Luxurious accommodation clean and tidy. Easy access to both courses which are picturesque and a real test at Championship standard. Attentive staff and professional service across the resort. A must for all golfers

Called at the K Club and had a few drinks in the actual hotel and then strolled across the bridge over the river Liffey into the golf club. Didn't play golf but non-members very welcome into the club house. We had a meal for 4 of us. Great service, lovely food, beautiful walks.

I have been fortunate enough to play some beautiful courses in the last few short years I have been playing golf. 2 weeks previously I had played the PGA Centenary Course at Gleneagles Scotland (Ryder Cup 2014 course), the K Club came out on top! (Both are excellent by the way). We had a beautiful sunny day in March, to... More

Home of the 2006 Rider Cup and you can see why. The hotel is what is left of an old mansion that was been added to and remodeled into a 5 star resort. It sits about 15 miles outside of Dublin so having a car if preferable. We stayed in a room that is in the converted stable. We had... More

We had a special couple of days at the K Club to celebrate the successful replacement of my right knee and to thank my wife for the special care following my escape from hospital! Staying at the K Club was a great decision - we were upgraded to a beautiful room, we were made very welcome from the moment we... More

I looked forward to playing the Palmer Ryder Cup Course for the last 20 years after I caddied here once as a teenager and attended a few European Opens and a practice day for the Ryder Cup. For late winter/early spring the course was in very good condition. The greens were smooth and fast and the sand in the bunkers... More

Myself and my husband had a rare treat away without the kids and spent a night in the K Club. From the moment we checked in we felt like we were in heaven! Our room was amazing with a beautiful view. I spent time in the spa and had a very relaxing hot stone massage. We had dinner in Legends... More
