Visited for our 5th wedding anniversary, last minute decision and the best decision we made! What an absolutely fabulous hotel. I had read previous reviews and they could not be further from the truth. This is pure luxury from the moment you hit the gates until you get walked to your room by the very friendly and helpful staff. We... More

Lovely hotel and grounds although agree with some past reviews that a few areas need a little TLC. Outdoor entrance to the spa around the hot tub area was a bit scruffy. Only complaint would be that we were charged for a 4 minute phone call from our room which was definitely not made by us but we felt silly... More

On arrival, as our room was not ready, we went for afternoon tea. It took one hour from we ordered until something arrived. It was ok, but not worth €30. The house keeping was very poor. The mirror in our room was covered in hand marks from a previous child visitor. There was black mould on the ceiling that had... More

I attended a wedding at the K Club in July 2015. The hotel and grounds were beautiful. The food was also wonderful. We stayed 2 nights. On the first morning starting at 8AM there was very loud construction noise. Jackhammers as well as other equipment. Called the front desk, and they acted like we were imagining the noise. Same thing... More

We stayed at the K Club two nights and golfed at both of the courses. Our package also included breakfast each morning and one dinner. The hotel is beautiful and the grounds are expansive.

From the minute we arrived at the K Club, everything was wonderful. The hotel itself is very impressive, not to mention the surrounding area and the beautiful village of Straffan. We were shown to our room and it felt more like visiting friends than a hotel. Our room was large and accompanying room for our three children the same. The... More

Spent a night there to celebrate my husband's 40th.
