The K Club
Co. Kildare, Ireland
A long standing member of Preferred Hotels & Resort and Ireland’s 1st AA Red Star Property, this luxurious 5 star resort boasts a 140-bedroom hotel, four on-site restaurants, two championship Arnold Palmer designed golf courses, a luxurious K Spa and a host of activities including horse riding, falconry, clay-pigeon shooting, fishing, wine cellar tours and much more. Built in 1832, The K Club is set on the former site of Straffan House, which was originally modelled after a French chateau by Hugh Barton, 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.
Located in the quaint village of Straffan, County Kildare, and only thirty minutes from both Dublin City Centre and Dublin International Airport, The K Club enjoys a tranquil location but is within easy reach of the country’s capital. It is the perfect spot to enjoy all the wonders of Ireland’s Ancient East or to treat yourself to a luxurious country retreat.

At A Glimpse
If you could dream of a place where you could enjoy the very best of classic Irish hospitality in a breath taking setting, a place where the mighty River Liffey carves its way at a slow, meandering pace through 550 acres of mature parkland, a place where time stands still, that place must surely be The K Club in Straffan, Co. Kildare, Ireland.
