Fodor's Expert Review Kildare Hotel and Country Club

Off Baberstown Rd., Straffan, Co. Kildare, Ireland Fodor's Choice

Manicured gardens and the renowned Arnold Palmer–designed K Club golf course surround this mansard-roof country mansion. Spacious, comfortable guest rooms, each uniquely decorated with antiques, have large windows that overlook either the Liffey or the golf course. The rooms in the old house have the most atmosphere, and if you need extra space you can also opt for several cottages on the property. The Byerley Turk restaurant serves a French menu with Irish flair, and supported with a lot of the vegetables grown in their own gardens.
