What is Firstlight The K Club?
Firstlight The K Club is the finest shared ownership offering in Europe. Incorporating some of Ireland's premier properties nestled amongst two championship golf courses and complemented by Ireland's only AA Five Red Star Hotel and Resort. Set amidst 550-acres of pristine parkland on a mile long private stretch of the River Liffey in Kildare, this is the first time in its history The K Club has opened its doors to shared ownership clients and their families and it is a perfect chance to be a part of something truly exceptional.
An Extraordinary Place In History
From the moment you arrive at The K Club, it is clear this is no ordinary place. Few other resorts in the world command the same immediate espect and reverence as that of The K Club. It's a reputation that personal experience does nothing to diminish. For almost 1,500 years this extraordinary place has been coveted and fought over and although the K Club itself is a recent addition to the landscape, there have been magnificent residences here for hundreds of years and much of the hotel that now stands here dates back to the early 19th century. That much is apparent in both the glorious splendour of the main Straffan House Hotel and the attention to detail that has gone into the decor, restoration and design of this beautiful building. The K Club is a place of real historical significance and an authentic taste of Irish heritage.
The location itself could not be better for exploring the surrounding Kildare landscape. From the imposing and dramatic Wicklow Mountains National Park with peaks blanketed in heath and open vistas interrupted only by forestry plantations, to the beautiful valleys and lowlands that surround The K Club and provide the perfect environment for country sports and leisurely reflection. Fast-flowing streams descend into the deep lakes of the wooded valleys and continue their course into the surrounding countryside, carving out a landscape that has inspired poets and left a legacy of a picture perfect Ireland.
In addition the close proximity of Dublin ensures the vibrancy of one of Europe's most intriguing cities is never far away and for the horse racing lover, the National Stud and the home of Irish horse racing, the Curragh are within easy reach.
Few locations in Ireland occupy a better place in terms of location, history and prestige than that of the legendary K Club.
