Loved staying in the cottage/apartment at the K Club. I felt like I was at home, it was so warm, cosy and relaxing! Wish I would have known how wonderful it was so I could have stayed my entire trip! Better than another 5 star hotel we stayed at!

My wife and I recently attended a wedding reception at this venue. Second to none. The rooms in the main building used to host the drinks reception were exquisite. The drinks and canapés were served by attentive courteous professionals. The reception was held in the Smurfit suite. Unfortunately we had been unable to secure the preferential wedding accommodation rate. I... More

Stayed for a weekend as wedding guests. The building and grounds are beautiful. The staff were brilliant - always on hand when needed but not in your face. The breakfast was excellent and served with speed and politeness despite some rude, demanding guests at another table. The bedroom was very nice, although a bit small for 5 star, but the... More
