Have stayed here twice and had a fantastic experience both times. The staff are friendly and attentive, the spa is amazing, I had a lovely facial on my last visit. The food is first class and my husband enjoyed the golf. Also very close to Kildare Village (shopping) if you fancy a shopping spree. Look forward to returning soon.

Stayed here 2 weekends ago for my husbands birthday and couldn't have asked for better in any way. From the front desk staff to the bar and restaurant staff you couldn't find friendlier or more helpful. We were in a room in the new part of the hotel and the decor was extremely tasteful and top quality. The bathroom was...

We stayed in the k club for a night. Everything was amazing from the welcome we got to the dinner that night. The room we got was a suit with a sitting room and double doors out onto a patio that over looks the Liffey river and the golf course. I could not recommend this hotel anymore it is truly...

Made to feel very welcome, service and food superb, facilities good, and fishing with resident gillie John O'Neil very enjoyable, and I wasn't really looking forward to the fishing, unlike my 11 year old son. Great place we shall return.

Hard to believe that a place with this reputation doesn't provide the level of service a 5* start should be. >Our dinner was booked for 8-8.30PM following a call we received from the hotel.

Stayed here for night, a short spa break near Dublin. Staff all very friendly and could not have been more helpful. If you confirm breakfast when booking they offered a discount. €20 for breakfast seemed good for buffet and eggs to order. Room was in the style of the hotel- classic rather than modern. Large bathroom and huge bath tub....

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.
