2022 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
The K Club is a stylish country resort, tucked away in the Kildare countryside but just on Dublin’s doorstep, firmly anchored in old-school Irish hospitality in a delightfully relaxed and unfussy way. The K Club is an exceptional backdrop to laidback country stays. With an authentic country mansion at its heart and comfortable contemporary wings, the fabulous décor, attentive staff and an impressive range of things to do both indoors and outdoors set the tone for days that can be as chilled or as full as you like, as there are scheduled and bespoke activities for you to dip in and out of, just as suits you. Set in lush countryside, overlooking formal gardens and its own pair of championship golf courses, The K Club has a wide choice of bars and restaurants, handsome drawing rooms and magnificent interiors with elegantly classic furnishings. The 134 spacious bedrooms are each individually designed with great attention to detail, with bathrooms that feature hand-painted murals. To ensure you get maximum pleasure from your dining experiences at The K Club, work up an appetite by playing one of the two Arnold Palmer-designed championship golf courses, host to the Ryder Cup in 2006, try kayaking on the estate’s private mile-long stretch of the River Liffey or experience the noble and ancient art of falconry, getting up close and personal with a stunning selection of birds of prey. Enjoy horse riding, playing a few games of tennis or fishing on the Liffey or the well-stocked lakes for pike, perch and brown trout, carp and tench, with the expert tuition of one of The K Club’s ghillies. With all equipment provided, this is an exhilarating way to spend a few hours, and even complete beginners catch fish in these well-stocked waters. Get out in the fresh country air on horseback where, from quiet lanes for beginners to full cross-country courses for the adventurous, you’ll be well minded by experienced K Club instructors on this classic country day out. Simply follow one of the gentle mapped garden walks, exploring the grounds at your own leisurely pace, or take the resort bicycles for a short spin to the cosy Straffan Inn, the pub in the nearby village which has been serving locals for over 100 years, opening its doors originally in 1920. Enjoy your drinks, with the concierge team collecting you when you are ready to return home to The K Club. If the weather isn’t cooperating, you could take a wine cellar or guided history tour, enjoy the beloved ritual of afternoon tea in one of the drawing rooms, or work your way through the menu of indulgent spa treatments in the award-winning K Spa, delivered by exceptional therapists. From deep tissue massages to cutting-edge skin treatments, there are relaxing and rejuvenating options to suit everyone at The K Spa. Rainy days are also a good time to experience the high-tech excitement of golf in K Golf World, a sophisticated suite of 8 state-of-the-art golf simulators, with spacious and luxurious bays, designed for up to 4 golfers at a time. In K Golf World at The K Club you can virtually play some of the world’s finest golf courses and improve your game, all while leaving your wet gear at home. For children there are Kids Club activities during school holidays, including movies, kids discos, treasure hunts, face painting, arts and crafts and duck races, as well as outdoor options like tennis and cycling, with families welcome to use the resort bicycles together to go exploring. Fuel your sense of adventure as a family and do some something different together every day with the impressive range of on-site activities at The K Club.

The K Club has consistently, each visit I have made over the past 20 years provided a standard that all hotels should aspire to achieve. A wonderful stay again and a special mention to Nicolas on front desk with the patience of a saint dealing with 6 over excited English ladies. Clara at breakfast on Tuesday who only knew how to say yes to our every whim and Bernie, who went out of her way to make our stay so special. Thank you to all the staff on duty 19th-21st Sept 2022. All dining experiences were a joy but breakfast is very special. Exceptional facilities in a spectacular setting.

From check in to check out it was an amazing stay. Our room was impeccable, food and cocktail service was marvelous in taste and presentation. Tony Murray and his team set me up with practice balls since my time I would not allow a golf game. Absolutely made my visit here.

A fantastic place. A group of 24 golfers. Played the north and south course. Golf courses in great shape with greens among the best I’ve ever played. Ate at the south restaurant which was a very pleasant experience. We stayed in the hotel and had a great breakfast. Staff were brilliant. Overall a wonderful experience and look very much forward to returning some day.

We had an absolutely amazing time for our friend's wedding at the K Club. It’s just magical for such a huge and beautiful setting. Wonderful service and food was amazing.It’s pricey but it’s all worth it. We stayed at Straffan gate which was completely restored and refurbished in a contemporary and elegant style. Loved how tidy the place and you can find the basic things you need esp in the kitchen. Only a few minutes walk to find a grocery shop to get what you need if you don’t want to dine-in at their restaurant. Aside from the magical wedding, we also enjoyed our small hiking, cycling and even played on their cute playground. Perfect stay for our family.

Attended for a wedding in August. Pleasantly surprised at the size and quality of the standard rooms. Grand building with extensive grounds and equally impressive choice of bars and areas to socialise. Nice breakfast but more likelihood of queue on busy day. Would love to try the golf next time!

Went for afternoon tea here with hubbie and 24 year old son with autism. First of all we walked around the beautiful grounds, so relaxing. On entering the hotel for lunch we were greeted by Brendan Farrell who could not have looked after us any better, seeking out the best area to make us and our son feel comfortable and relaxed. Then looked after by Rebecca who took our order and served us so efficiently and courteously. Brendan and Rebecca more than contributed to our very relaxing experience. Thank you so much for a lovely afternoon.

Have visited 140 countries and more than 500 hotels around the globe I must admit, that The K hotel is one of the best I have got experienced Apart from the black bread that they serve with every meal, anything else is just perfect Reception are professional, friendly with high sense of hospitality and awareness Every single person works at this hotel, is doing their maximum to bring a pleasant smile on your face Food is fantastic; ingredients are fresh and cooked with a deep art and talent Rooms are specious, and stays always clean and tidy…room service are great Nature around maintained and live its peaceful atmosphere….it’s like a painted art Not sure what else I could have said….words are not enough to describe

We have been privileged to stay at many 5 star hotels around the world in my time, but the K Club brings that standard to a higher level. The hotel is gorgeous and superbly decorated. Every public space could well be included in Architectural Digest – the entry, the lobby, the house bars (each more lovely than the other), the dining areas, the grounds, etc. All are elegant and lovely. The staff is extremely friendly and very good, especially Cesar. The food at their several restaurants is terrific. The golf courses associated with the club are fabulous. I only wish we could have stayed longer. It is a fantastic place and is highly recommended!!
