The K Club
The K Club, otherwise known as the Kildare Hotel, Spa & Country Club, is a luxurious and welcoming retreat that offers much more than its championship golf courses, one of which was the venue for the 2006 Ryder Cup. This vast and scenic estate exudes comfort and exclusivity without feeling pretentious like some golfing resorts.
Golf may be an integral part of the hotel experience, but the K Club ensures that non-golfers are not overlooked by offering a wide range of activities to keep everyone entertained. The chateau, built in 1832, is nestled on a 550-acre estate, guaranteeing privacy and space even when the hotel is fully occupied.
Every corner of the hotel, from the spa to the guest rooms, is adorned with beautiful features - antiques, stunning baroque drapes, intricate frescoed ceilings, original artwork, and naturally, views of the verdant lawns of The K Club.
The expansive grounds and golf courses of The K Club are breathtaking. Golf enthusiasts have the opportunity to play on several courses, including those which hosted the 2016 Irish Open and the 2006 Ryder Cup. For those seeking adventure, numerous onsite activities are available, such as guided fishing expeditions along the River Liffey, horseback riding, falconry, and clay pigeon shooting.
Art and antiques lavish the halls and public spaces, and art lovers can take part in one of the property's many art talks and tours, which emphasize the important Irish works on display, including an entire room dedicated to J.B. Yeats.
The Straffan House residence is a magnificent 10-bedroom country home that comes with a private chef, butler, swimming pool, spa, and gym. The Christmas season here is particularly magical, complete with a gourmet dinner, lavish holiday decorations, and a visit from Santa Claus.
Despite the tranquility and vastness of the County Kildare hotel giving a sense of remoteness, it’s conveniently located close enough for a stay the night before a mid-morning international flight. Dublin Airport is around a 35-minute drive away.
The village of Straffan is a 20-minute walk away, while downtown Dublin is approximately 20 miles away.
Each guest room at this luxury hotel is individually styled, with no two rooms alike. The décor is decidedly grand, featuring lush formal drapes, patterned wallpaper, original oil paintings, and an array of chintz. The K Club takes great pride in its Irish heritage, providing organic Irish bath products and a selection of Irish teas in each room.
The hotel offers several dining options, each with its own distinct ambiance. The Vintage Crop bar is a cozy space offering fine whiskeys and cigars. The River Room Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a grand setting. Less formal dining options include The K Thai restaurant, which blends Thai and Asian recipes with Irish ingredients for a unique culinary experience.
Afternoon tea is served in the Chinese Drawing Room, overlooking the manicured gardens. Pre-dinner drinks can be enjoyed in the Media Puzzle Lounge, opening up to the garden through large French doors.
The K Club offers a host of amenities including 24-hour room service, babysitting services, a bar, fitness classes, a gym, an indoor pool, meeting rooms, restaurants, a spa, and tennis facilities.
