Magic at the K Club
For a fairytale wedding, you won’t find a more magical venue than the Kildare Hotel and Country Club, affectionately known as The K Club. It is one of the most stunning locations in Ireland to host a wedding.
Any bride and groom will feel very lucky indeed if they tie the knot at The K Club. Located in the pretty village of Straffan, Co Kildare on the banks of the River Liffey, the hotel is surrounded by 550 acres of mature woods, parkland, magnificent formal gardens and, not just one but two spectacular golf courses – the perfect backdrop to your wedding photographs!
Dating back to 1832, Ireland’s first AA Five Red Star Property offers a host of opulent facilities. The original house has been sympathetically restored to its former glory and now boasts 69 bedrooms and suites which are individually appointed to the highest standard, many with beautiful views of the verdant gardens or the river.
Golf & Spa
The hotel is also perfect for golf and spa lovers, boasting two of the world’s most prestigious golf courses – the Palmer course, a magnificent 18-hole championship golf course which recently hosted the Ryder Cup and the challenging Smurfit course. It also offers a sublime spa where couples can be indulged in luxurious spa rituals and treatments, plus a state-of-the-art fitness centre with large indoor pool, making it ideal for honeymooners to keep active or relax and be indulged – however the mood takes them!
Wining & dining
The gourmet restaurants, including The K Club River Room and the Byerley Turk offer fine dining at its best, and extensive wine cellars at the K Club offer some of the world’s finest vintages, to ensure that couples can enjoy the finer things in life during their stay.
Whether you are planning a large and lavish wedding or a more intimate affair, the hotel has the facilities and perfect location to host your event. Prices start from 85 to 120 euros for an all-inclusive package.
You can leave all the arrangements in the safe hands of The K Club’s dedicated wedding planning team who will ensure that your special day is absolutely perfect, so that you can sit back and enjoy the occasion. They can cater for traditional or contemporary style weddings, and incorporate your personal wedding theme, including those special Irish traditions. A resident makeup artist is on hand to ensure brides and bridal parties look and feel their best on their special day.
The wedding party will be able to enjoy the K Club’s superb facilities during their stay – those staying at the hotel can indulge in sublime spa treats, challenging golf or simply relax and enjoy afternoon tea or a glass of bubbly while sinking into the deep sofas in one of many lounges.
