“Tops in Ireland”
Reviewed 29 December 2003

I ended this year's golf-a-thon at the K-Club. After a week of schlepping through irish "first class" hotels and guesthouses, the K-Club was pure bliss. LUXURY! MASSAGE THERAPISTS! FINE DINING! It felt like reaching the oasis after a month in the desert. It's a very, very nice place to stay. The rooms are superb and the ambiance just so. The north course is a really fun parkland course (the south is not worth it by comparison) but my highlights here are enjoying post-prandials on the terrace until too late and then getting up at 0430 to fish with the house ghillie - his stories are worth the trip alone. GO!
