The K Club in Co. Kildare has won the award for the world's Best Luxury Country House at the World Luxury Hotel Awards.
Over 1,000 hotels from 87 countries were nominated. Other global winners include world famous properties such as the Burj Al Arab, Dubai and The Harbour Grand in Hong Kong. Winners are purely judged on service delivery and effective management voted for by international tour operators, travel agents and hotel guests who get the opportunity to cast their valuable votes annually, making the process fair and unbiased.
"This is great news and it's a further testament to the professionalism and dedication of our team and the commitment of our owner Dr Smurfit. We are really thrilled and honoured to receive this award and want to thank everyone who voted for us." said Michael Davern, CEO of the K Club.
The luxury hotel has won several other awards this year including 2013 Hospitality Ireland Best Wine Experience Award.
