We had a brilliant weekend here for my husbands 50th. The place was stunning . The walks around were lovely, calm and energizing. The scenery was spectacular . Our room was great and really comfortable . There was a birthday dessert on the table when we arrived and I thought this was a lovely touch . I could not name all the staff but they were so nice and helpful. Brendan in particular was entertaining and very kind when I told him about my wobble on the motorway. William was great for the lifts to Straffan inn and to Palmer . Lisa helpful with the wine choosing. Overall a fab fab weekend so glad I choose it. If I was to pick a fault, it would be breakfast , it wasn’t very warm and could of been cooked a bit more but all other meals we had were brill x I will defo return. Beware of the gin martini ( very strong😀)also my husband went fishing with ciarain and really enjoyed , another lovely man . Thanks all for fab time

The K Club lived up to more than expectations from the very beginning. Calm and peaceful setting, wonderful grounds (which you can explore by bike or walking trails) and fantastic staff. Every member of staff met us with a smile and a positive attitude which made our experience even better. Mairead at the front desk went above and beyond ensuring our stay met all our requirements and even accommodated a room move on the same floor with even more spectacular views because of an issue with the shower on the first day. She then proceeded to ensure all aspects of our day went to our satisfaction. Aoife was another superb member of staff from Afternoin Tea on Day One, to her enthusiastic and friendly demeanour serving lunch and drinks on Day Two. Nothing was a fuss and her positive attitude shun through. Both Jo and Rob were equally wonderful at the K Spa for treatments for my Wife and I and while I would stay a week, normal life and two young children await. We would and will be back for sure and would highly recommend...

Just returned from our first stay in The K Club for the Bank Holiday weekend. Blown away by everything! We stayed for 2 nights and I could not fault a single thing from the entire weekend. I had mentioned it was my birthday when I made the reservation and they had left a little cake and card in our room on arrival. Such a lovely touch! The decor in the bedrooms was so luxurious. No expense spared to ensure the guest feels spoiled. All of the drawing rooms, etc were so impeccably decorated. We ate in the K Thai restaurant on the first night and then the Palmer on the second night. Everything was perfect. Breakfast on both mornings was delicious. Lovely little touches which made it stand out from normal hotel breakfast experience. I used the gym and pool- again, no complaints- everything so clean and well maintained. Nothing out of place. We used the on site bikes on Sunday for a trip around the grounds. so much fun! My husband played golf on Saturday and really enjoyed it. Grounds were super and so well kept. Finally would like to mention the staff, they went above and beyond to meet every need we had. They were so pleasant and constantly checked that every requirement we had was exceeded. It was our first visit to the K club but certainly wont' be our last. An unforgettable experience in every way- thank you so much!!

As a frequent visitor to the hotel for the past 6 years, I have really seen a difference over the last two stays. Christmas time was fantastic and the staff really went out of their way to make it as special as possible for us and our baby daughter. When we returned in June, there was more brilliant changes in the hotel, from a welcome at the main gates to new decor and an improved food menu. We ate in three of the restaurants at the resort and all were fantastic. A marked improvement on previous visits. The staff in the hotel are the best I’ve came across, from familiar faces in the concierge who remember you each time, to the restaurant and waiting staff who went over and above to make sure our stay was special. They always ensured our daughter was entertained and small touches such as giving her ice cream and even a teddy bear was much appreciated. There has also been a massive upgrade to the Palmer North clubhouse. We had Sunday lunch there and the decor and atmosphere was top class. We will hopefully get time at the new fire pits on our next visit. Well done to the team on the improvements and thanks again for making our visit amazing.
