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.

During a recent visit to the K Club spa with two friends we were greeted by Una , who gave us the most friendly guide around the spa and took time to describe the different treatments and facilities available. The spa itself is really beautiful and I immediately felt calm and relaxed. Una then brought us to a relaxation room , making sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed and then introduced each of us to our therapists . My treatment was with Mona, who explained what the treatment would be , and then with her exceptional expertise and care suggested therapies tailored to my needs as she went along. I can honestly say that at the end of my treatment , thanks to Mona I not only felt physically better but a wonderful sense well-being. As we each finished our treatments we were brought to another relaxation room , where Una again checked in and saw that we had a light treat including teas/ vitamin drinks. My thanks to Mona and Una and to all the staff in the spa treatment centre. I would highly recommend the the K Club spa for its ambience and wonderful staff.

We had an amazing day here at the spa to celebrate a friends milestone birthday. Staff were all very welcoming and professional. We relaxed completely and were so well looked after. I had an amazing facial by Natalie and my skin felt great afterwards. We went to the relaxation room afterwards which was lovely. We finished up this great day out with a delicious late lunch at Palmer restaurant. Highly recommended and we will be back!

Lovely visit! Absolutely fantastic, everything. From the misty morning walks along the creek, an afternoon tea, to the decadent wines poured at sunset, falconry, massages … everything was superb. Even if you are not a golfer, this place is fabulous. And, thanks to Tony who was always there to greet us with a smile and offer a solution to every query or whim.

My wife took me here for my birthday and she’s originally from Dublin. This place is absolutely amazing and we are having such a great time!! The service is impeccable and my wife and I just had a lovely tea with amazing service from Bhavya! He was attentive, friendly, and did everything to make sure we had the best time. Thanks Bhavya! I’m also a big time fisherman and for the heck of decided to try their fishing. I had a guide by the name of Tommy take me out fly fishing and to also teach me how to do it. I’ve been fishing my whole life and I fly fished for a year as a kid but it’s been 30 years. My man was so much fun to hang out with, a great teacher, and a great fishing buddy! I ended up catching 7 bows with the larger ones over 3 lbs and losing another 7 more. The fishing here is amazing I was so impressed!! The most impressive was my man Tommy so if you’re interested in fishing book the K Club for as surprising unbelievable experience!! I also have to add how amazing Tony Murray has been since the minute we have arrived! He is fun, friendly, and an amazing person! He has made us feel right at home with his charming Irish hospitality. I’d also like to add that my man Mark and John in the lounge are gents and pour a very nice Guinness! Mairead has also been so nice and was able to book that fabulous fishing trip for me last minute with Tony. Una has been great too, friendly and helpful for whatever It is that we needed. Brendan and Jack with both absolute pleasures to speak with and were so hopeful if there was ever anything you needed. They went out of their way to help and It was like chatting up with a couple of buddies! Oisin was fabulous with his service and I really wanted to make note of that, nice guy too! When my wife finished playing golf we wandered over to the spa and Amy was nice enough to get me a loner pair of swim trunks and hold my clubs for me, thank you so much for doing that! The spa was fabulous as well and It was a great way to relax after a long day of golf. We really felt and we’re treated like family coming here and so would anyone else!

From the moment you drive into the Estate you are met by lovely welcoming staff. From the gate keeper to the cocktail bar to Barton’s restaurant it can’t be faulted. We had a beautiful Liffey Suite overlooking the extensive grounds. We will have to come back when the North course re-opens. Also should be noted our friends that were due to travel with us had to cancel less than 24 hours before (due to Ill health) and the hotel couldn’t have been more accommodating or understanding, cancelling with no charge which really helped with such a stressful situation. We will book to come again soon.

Recently enjoyed an Afternoon Tea at The K Club. On arrival, we were greeted at the gate & given directions of where to go by a very friendly man. Once we had parked up, we met the lovely Tony at the door who kindly took our photo & guided us inside to where we’d have our tea. The room was bright & very comfortable, with an open fire blazing. Our server was an older, very refined, friendly man(we didn’t get his name) he made us feel so comfortable & he was so charming & professional. He really made us feel welcome & nothing was too much. The service was second to none & the afternoon tea is certainly one of our favourite’s. The selection was beautiful & extremely well presented. They also cater a Gluten Free option which was equally beautiful. We had a little walk around the grounds, unfortunately the weather wasn’t on our side as we would have loved to walk the full grounds which are so beautiful & very well maintained. A definite return visit is on the cards & highly recommended. Well done to all the staff at The K Club.

We visited the k club Hotel for the first time this afternoon an we would highly recommend it. We were greated by brendan and Tony in guest services. They were two of the most friendly people we have ever met and learned a lot about the house from them. They went the extra mile to go above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Mark at the bar was so friendly and polite. Any one coming to this hotel will love the hospitality we got on day from Brendan tony and mark. Brendan was so knowledgeable about the history of the house. Valerie and Mark

A 5 star break from start to finish. Brendan the head concierge greeted us on our arrival and throughout our stay he made us feel very welcome with his quirky witted humour and friendly banter. Shauna at reception was so professional efficient and very polite - a pleasure to deal with. Would highly recommend Jo at the k spa for a treatment- the best in the business!! Our 4 kids ages, 2,3,6&7 all thoroughly enjoyed their stay and are longing to go back again. The games room, swimming pool, bikes, playground, gym and Easter activities were top class. The food was amazing also, we dined in the Palmer and it was so beautiful. We have booked again for our 10 year wedding anniversary in September 2022. Dan and Helen O’ Sullivan, Cork.

A really lovely 1 night stay. This was the first time we tried K Club and it has most definitely become the new favourite. Huge thanks to Mairead at reception who could not have been more friendly and helpful - a real ambassador for K Club. Most definitely will return ASAP and for longer next time. Staff ( fantastic chap on the gate, the concierge and also the staff at breakfast) were fantastic and created a clearly 5* experience. Loved it.
