This is the place to stay. Luxury and very friendly staff. The restaurant is Masterchef in reel life. Play golf, absolute. Recommending a golf lesson with Michael Dixon, this is an experient for life. Not far away from Dublin City, still very far away from the city. Nice and quiet.

Another fantastic weekend at the K Club! Impossible to find fault. Food and service up to the usual high standard. John who works in the bar deserve particular mention, friendly and professional. Stayed at the majority of the 5 star hotels in Ireland and the K Club always comes out on top and the one we return to!
