Overview

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.

Golf Courses

The K Club is also home to two Championship Arnold Palmer designed Golf Courses - The Ryder Cup Course and The Smurfit Course, which have hosted numerous international tournaments including the 2006 Ryder Cup, 13 European Opens and most recently the 2016 Irish Open.

Accommodation

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 soft furnishings, artwork 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.

Restaurant & Bars

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 Byerley Turk Restaurant in the main hotel. Whatever the preference, there is something for every palate at The K Club.

The course has no shortage of difficult areas of rough, water hazards and is very lengthy, with an intimidating distance ahead from the back tees. Despite these challenges, the course makes for an enjoyable round for all, with a several tees on each hole, meaning the length of the course overall can be reduced.

Palmer Course

One of two championship courses at The K Club, the Palmer course is remembered as the venue for Europe's memorable win in the 2006 Ryder Cup. The Arnold Palmer designed course has taken into consideration its natural surroundings, with meandering fairways incorporating many trees and areas of water as potential hazards.
