A member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts Legends Collection and Irelands 1st AA Red Star Property, The K Club boasts 134-bedrooms, a grand Irish country retreat, set amid 550-acres of pristine parkland on a mile long private stretch of the River Liffey. Located only 30 minutes from Dublin Airport and City Centre, The K Club is an elegantly restored 19th Century Georgian mansion estate, set on the former site of Straffan House, which was originally modelled after a French chateau by Hugh Barton in 1832, the grandson of legendary winemaker Thomas Barton. Converted into a luxury hotel and country club in 1991, the opening of The K Club was a landmark moment in the Irish hospitality industry, creating new standards of Irish décor and service that have not been surpassed.

Accommodation is as one would expect from a property of this standard, it is luxurious, extremely comfortable but also very individual. Each bedroom is bespoke with its own individual soft furnishings, art work and fine furniture. Bathrooms are of generous proportions and are hand painted with deep, full length baths, separate showers and of course the obligatory yellow rubber duck! Through an extensive renovation project in 2015, The K Club added two new room categories to its selection of accommodations; the stunning Deluxe Woodland & River View Rooms and three Barton Suites.

Being a resort property, it is only fitting that The K Club provides its guests with a wide selection of dining options ranging from casual bar menus in our country club restaurants to exquisite tasting menus in the elegant Barton Restaurant in the main hotel. Whatever the preference, there is something for every palate at The K Club.

Offering a true country retreat, The K Club provides an extensive selection of activities including kayaking, horse riding, falconry, fishing, clay-pigeon shooting, walking, cycling, wine cellar tours, whiskey tasting and so much more. The K Club is also home to two Championship Arnold Palmer designed Golf Courses – the Palmer North and the Palmer South, which have hosted numerous international tournaments including the 2006 Ryder Cup, 13 European Opens and most recently the 2016 Irish Open.

In addition to two 18-hole championship golf courses, The K Club also hosts the luxurious – 20,000 sq-ft K Spa that is noted as one of the finest spas in Europe. In February 2018, The K Spa at The K Club launched a new spa partnership with the luxurious Natura Bissé skincare brand. Loved by celebrities and endorsed by the travel experts, Forbes, as their official skincare brand, the introduction of Natura Bissé to the K Spa ensures a memorable and extraordinary experience for all guests at The K Club.

The K Club pair’s old-world charm, service and ambience with modern comforts in a luxurious residential setting. Opulent, classical surroundings reflect elements of Ireland’s history and reveal the best of luxury accommodation.
