What do you get for €20,000 per night?  A stunning residence modelled on the French château at Louveciennes not far from Versailles, in the grounds of the K Club in Kildare. This mansion is designed for gracious living, with palatial and elegant interiors.

A remarkable retreat with 10 bedrooms, ideal to gather the whole family or your extended group of friends. Celebrate the end of lockdown in real style at Straffan House.

This 34,000 sq. ft mansion is three storeys over the basement, where the pool with a swim-up bar is located.  The lower ground also has a cinema, gym, games room, and wine cellar. The huge windows overlook the manicured terraces and golf courses of the K Club.

Private Cinema

As your stay includes full Irish breakfast, lunch, tea, coffee, homemade cookies and cake, soft drinks and snacks, a pre-dinner drinks reception, and a gourmet dinner, the most urgent decision you will need to make is which movie you are going to watch together and when, or what you would like to do with all your free time with your friends or family on this lavish 550-acre country estate.

To ensure you get maximum pleasure from your private dining experiences at Straffan House, work up an appetite by playing one of the two Arnold Palmer-designed championship golf courses, host to the Ryder Cup in 2006, also included as complimentary with any stay.

Enjoy horse riding, playing a few games of tennis or fishing on the Liffey or the well-stocked lakes with the expert tuition of one of The K Club’s ghillies. Simply follow one of the gentle mapped garden walks, exploring the grounds at your own leisurely pace, or visit the cosy Straffan Inn, the pub in the nearby village which has been serving locals for over 100 years, opening its doors originally in 1920. Enjoy your drinks, with your own private driver collecting you when you are ready to return home to Straffan House.
