Came to stay a couple of nights and played golf. Enjoyed every thing about the K Club and hotel. Staff fantastic. Golf course staff very accommodating and made our visit even more special. Dinner at Rivers Edge was very enjoyable and great food quality.

We stayed the night here without the kids before school manic routine commenced again post easter. It is such a beautiful estate. We were upgraded to the bridal suite which is in the old house overlooking the magnificent gardens. Quite a treat. We walked the trails, relaxed in the spa and had a lovely meal that evening in the river... More

I have been here for a business trip but even without having too much time at the hotel I really enjoyed my stay in this wonderful countryside just 20-30 minutes from Dublin. I can only echo the comments of other reviewers: unique atmosphere, nice staff, great food, good Spa. A nice place to come down. Much too late I realized,... More

We stayed here over Easter and had a wonderful time. This was our second stay here and it did not disappoint. The staff all around the hotel from check in to breakfast were so friendly. The fishing was really good fun too and our ghillie was incredible.

Step back in time to this lovely hotel. Don't expect ultra modern, minimalistic style as the original building is seeped in history but the rooms are still luxurious and clean. The service and helpfulness is outstanding - in a dignified, classy way as opposed to "in your face" brashness. Extensive grounds which are beautifully kept and a great sized pool... More

Stayed for two nights room was lovely. Staff extremely warm and friendly. Food lovely. Had a full body massage which was pricy but good. Only issue would be the up tempo music both in the relaxation room and during the massage. I am Looking forward to returning. Plenty to do in the area..

Great golf, great food but hotel in desperate need of modernisation or even a luck of paint. Booked 2 self catering apartments for 8 golfers but got "upgraded" to the hotel. Obviously double booked us but not good for when you've brought ££'s of your own food and drink. Ended up having to bin all the food as no fridges... More

I had three nights bed and breakfast in the Courtyard Apartments as part of a golfing group. I was very impressed with the apartment, and it suited our needs. Breakfast was in the hotel, and could not be faulted. We ate in the Legends bar for two of those nights, and found the meals to very good and not overly... More
