This hotel definitely takes you back in time, or maybe I should say it is timeless. With memorabilia old and new, each brings different insights to this authentic hotel. Wonderful breakfast and high tea. My only complaint is that the gym / spa opens late at 7am and closes early at 8pm. So those of us on business have trouble...

There is no denying the staff were fantastic. On the whole, very friendly and helpful. We had a great welcome when we arrived. The rooms were a good size with high ceilings and big windows. The bed very comfy. The problem was it is all a bit tired and some aspects terribly old fashioned. It is rather "old school" which...

While overall we enjoyed our visit there were certain aspects of our stay that were certainly not bad but not as good as they might have been. The staff were excellent. Very professional, helpful and friendly. A special mention to Oliver at the front door, the sommelier in the restaurant (I didn't catch her name on the 16th of March)...

As a regular business guest to this hotel, I find both the staff and the surroundings next to none. From Audrey the hotel manager, to John in the bar, they all go above and beyond when it comes to professionalism and customer service. This hotel feels like a home from home!

We ended our 10 day Ireland trip with a 3 night stay at the K Club. The hotel was absolutely stunning and even in the pouring rain the grounds were lovely! But more importantly, the service was top notch. From the moment we arrived, we were treated to unprecedented hospitality. An early morning travel had us arriving at the hotel...

Built in 1832, on the banks of the River Liffey, the original house was modelled on a French Chateau and still retains many of its original architectural features, art work and antiques. It opened as a luxury hotel in 1991 and was Ireland's first AA Five Red Star Property. To this day it continues to deliver the very highest levels of service and standards in terms of its food and beverage offerings, golf, leisure and spa treatments. The mature estate covers an impressive 550 acres and also features a stunning Victorian walled garden and fishing on the River Liffey which runs through the resort. The resident ghillees offer fly fishing on the river and horse riding and clay pigeon shooting are also available along with a range of different country pursuits. The K Club is home to two Championship Golf Courses- The Palmer Ryder Cup Course and the Palmer Designed Smurfit Course.
