2022 Travellers' 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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

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!!

The long, sweeping approach through the golf course sets the scene for the arrival. The front facade is impressive and the excellent service from the staff began immediately! From bell boys, to reception, bar and restaurant staff, to concierge and everyone else, the service was impeccable......professional, courteous and friendly throughout. The reputation of this famous, luxury hotel is deserved! We had booked a suite and again, I was not disappointed. A good size sitting room and separate bedroom overlooked the beautiful course and surrounding countryside. The room was furnished and decorated in period style and well appointed. The bed was huge and incredibly comfortable! The public areas, bars and restaurants all exuded quality and style and offered something different, from art deco to French Renaissance style, but all felt comfortable and luxurious. That impeccable staff service continued throughout. We had dinner at the hotel for one of the two nights and as expected, it was fantastic. It's obviously not cheap, but I guess you get what you pay for and this really is a high quality, luxury hotel, where they have got everything spot on. The two nights felt like a real treat and we left feeling refreshed and relaxed after staying in such amazing surroundings. Thank you for a brilliant stay!

Simply enjoyed our stay at The K Club. It’s beautiful, peaceful and a fun place for a family holiday. Love how the 500 acre hotel is surrounded by the golf courses, water bodies, cycling tracks and absolute greenery. People at The K Club have been fantastic from the reception to concierge to restaurants to housekeeping. Every staff member has helped us experience a fabulous and comfortable holiday. Immense hospitality!!! Special thanks to Tony Murray. He helped us make our holiday even more exciting by arranging the activities like rifle shooting, Segway rides, Falconry and a golf training session. Inspite of a major Golf Tournament at the club…he made sure we don’t miss the training session which my son was most excited about. Really happy and content with our holiday at The K Club. Would love to visit again someday.

The Palmer club house offers a lovely lunch menu with fabulous views from the veranda. Excellent and friendly service. Will defiantly be back. (However the gate man, on the day we visited, needs a lesson in customer service).

We got married last month at the K Club and we are still on a high from it. It was the most perfect day I could have ever imagined, even more so as the staff and venue just think of every single little detail for you and make sure you’re looked after like royalty. It truly was a “pinch me” moment walking down that fabulous outdoor aisle to marry the love of my life. A special shout out to Rachael who is the best wedding coordinator in the history of the work. She is superwoman and made sure every little thing went smoothly. Tony was also incredible and went so far as to come to my room with a screwdriver to put together a toy for my son. Another memorable person was Martin who was so lovely and friendly and we had a great chat the day after that picked me up from my hangover!! I’ve never come across service like it in my life and probably won’t again! The K club is hands down the fanciest and loveliest place I’ve ever been to and the staff should be really proud of the service the provide. - Aoibheann

Unbelievably great. Staff fantastic. Food amazing. Room wonderful. Golf off the scale great. Side story - My son suffers with hay fever and it came on strong the morning of our second round. Wanted vase line to help but didn't have any. That's where Tony in the reception stepped in. Went out in a car and purchased some. True gentleman and so typical of the quality of staff employed St the K Club.

Driving onto the property was amazing. It was well maintained and the grounds were gorgeous. Every experience we had during our stay was exceptional. We were greeted at the door, our luggage was taken and stored as we were early, and the lady at the desk did everything she could to get us into a room early. She succeeded.. We stopped for a coffee in the Barton as we waited and our coffees and cookies we were not charged. Our room was magnificent. It had two full baths, a sitting room with plenty of seating and a tv. The bedroom had a comfortable king bed with wonderful linens, a tv and a lovely view. Each bathroom had two sinks and a heated towel bar. Robes, slippers, a safe, and an ironing board and an iron, and a coffee maker were also there. The staff were outstanding.
