The Kildare Hotel at The K Club was Ireland’s first hotel to be awarded five Red Stars by the AA. Located in the countryside of County Kildare, the luxury property offers a host of pampering, leisure, gourmet and golf facilities just 30 minutes by car from Dublin.
A long-standing member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, The K Club has won a string of awards: in 2014 alone it was named the Best Luxury Country House in the World in the World Luxury Hotel Awards and was number four in the 20 Best Resorts in Europe category of the Condé Nast Traveller Reader’s Choice Awards.
Built in 1832 on the banks of the River Liffey, the original house was modelled on a French Château and still retains many of its original architectural features, paintings and antiques. Set in 550 acres, the property has a Victorian walled garden and offers the opportunity to fish on the River Liffey, which runs through the resort.
Winner of Best Irish Golf Hotel in the World Golf Awards 2014, the resort is home to two championship golf courses and has hosted the 2006 Ryder Cup and the European Open from 1995 to 2007.
Other facilities include a selection of dining options, including the elegant 2-AA-Rosette River Room, plus The K Spa, which features an outdoor hot tub, an aromatic herb garden, seven treatment rooms, a hammam, a hydrobath, a Vichy shower and a rasul chamber.
Spacious, individually designed bedrooms feature original paintings and antiques, with hand-painted murals in the bathrooms.
Families are well catered for with a kids' club offering arts and crafts, nature walks and games, and there's also a child-friendly swimming pool and junior golf clinics during the summer. A babysitting service is also available upon request.
