If you want a fantastic hotel combined with two world golf class courses look no further than the K club for a golf break in Ireland. From Gatwick to The K Club's lobby took less than 2 hours so it really is a convenient venue for anyone in the UK or Ireland.
The Georgian bedrooms and the food in the three different restaurants we ate in are absolutely outstanding. The Spa, for the non golfing members of our golf group, was greatly appreciated and fully enjoyed.
The two golf courses at The K Club are immense and so wonderfully different. The Palmer course, which hosted the 2006 Ryder Cup, is a real test of golf. We played from the front tees and even though we had single figure handicappers in the group, everyone agreed the test of golf was top class.
The Smurfit course is much more open but still, you need to play it a few times to understand the design and how best to navigate your way around. As they say, sometimes less is more and this certainly rings true with some of the tee shots here.
We also played at Druids Glen on this trip and while both courses there were amazing, next year we will revisit just the K Club. We loved it that much! You'd have a hard time finding a better golf venue in the world that can match this magnificent set up for a varied party of golfers and partners.
