A Christmas tree in every bedroom? It’s The K Club, where they take lavish family holiday celebrations very seriously indeed!

Glamorous, opulent and over-the-top elegant – and that’s just the Christmas decorations… The K Club is a stylish 5-star country resort, grand but cosy, firmly anchored in old-school Irish hospitality in a delightfully relaxed and unfussy way.

Ireland’s first AA 5 Red Star hotel, The K Club makes a brilliant setting for an utterly luxurious and unforgettable family Christmas.

Think about all the best bits of your favourite imaginary Christmas – a lush country house setting, the lavish spreads, the fabulous décor, the attentive staff on hand to cater to your every need, the carol singing, the arrival of Santa in a horse and carriage… Now add on the practical aspects that would make it all perfect – the impressive range of daily activities, both indoors and outdoors, the interconnecting family rooms, the adults-only bar and the kids-only Kids Club, optional spa treatments in the award-winning K Spa, treasure hunts, family quiz nights, and a Christmas tree in every room? The K Club has possibly created 5-star family Christmas heaven.


Set in lush countryside, overlooking formal gardens and its own pair of championship golf courses, The K Club has a wide choice of bars and restaurants, handsome drawing rooms and magnificent interiors with superb furnishings. The spacious bedrooms are individually designed with sumptuous bathrooms, and great attention to detail. The K Club is also home to an exceptional collection of original paintings by famous artists, including Paul Henry and Jack B. Yeats, who has a room dedicated to the largest privately-held collection of his work.

A Christmas retreat to The K Club begins with a journey down the winding avenue to the beautiful country house at the centre of the resort, the original Straffan House, built by the renowned wine-making family of the Bartons in 1832. With mulled wine and mince pies on arrival, choose one of the many fine drawing rooms with their crackling log fires and deep sofas, and get comfortable – make yourself at home for Christmas at The K Club.

Every day has a busy schedule for you to dip in and out of, as suits you all. For the children there is Santa’s arrival, of course, but also the brilliant K Club Kids Club with activities including Christmas movies, kids discos, treasure hunts, face painting, arts and crafts and duck races, as well as outdoor options like tennis and cycling, with families welcome to use the resort bicycles to explore the many private lanes and paths. For the grown-ups there are wine cellar and art history tours, estate or mapped garden walks, fishing demonstrations, golf clinics or spa treats. And for everyone there are delicious breakfasts, brunches, lunches, suppers, dinners and buffets over the course of the festivities – so maybe a little outdoor activity would be a good idea too!

Two-night family Christmas at The K Club starts from €995 per night, with interconnecting family rooms for an additional €200 per night for up to two children, with all meals included for each child.

Spend the festive season in an elegant Irish country house complete with roaring fires, afternoon teas, delectable cuisine and luxurious facilities – The K Club, taking lavish 5-star family holiday celebrations very seriously indeed!
