County Kildare

Kildare Hotel, Spa & Country Club

The K Club
Straffan, County Kildare , Ireland
TEL: (800) 323-7500
TEL: 353-1-601-7200

This 19th-century château, a 30-minute drive west of Dublin, epitomizes an authentic Irish countryside escape. Originally owned by the Barton Family—who also managed a vineyard and winery in Bordeaux, France for five generations—K Club has a setting on 550 acres by the River Liffey, an expansive collection of art by Jack B. Yeats (Ireland’s most renowned painter), two championship golf courses, and a 20,000-square-foot spa. Be sure to listen closely: The hotel is set in horseracing country, so at any time you just might hear the patter of horses galloping on nearby Abbeyfield farm. 


Room to Book:

The rooms in Straffan House are spacious, individually decorated, and full of details such as hand-painted murals in the bathrooms.


Insider Tip:

Pull on rubber wellies and master a 90-degree reverse while fly-fishing in the River Liffey or in one of the property’s lakes.
