The K Club, Straffan, County Kildare , Ireland

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.
