The Straffan Inn
The Straffan Inn is a local pub and a real gem in the heart of Straffan. Originally built in 1820 as a Garrison to the British troops, the building was later transformed into a police station for the Straffan community. The Straffan Inn was then converted to a public house in 1920 and run as a family-owned pub while also doubling as a house. Serving local beers & traditional Irish cuisine the Straffan Inn is a great place to relax and experience a real Irish pub.

The Henry Lounge is a laidback hotel bar located in the newly built wing of The K Club. It is a relaxing, comfortable space in which to enjoy a casual lunch, a pre-dinner aperitif or a pint of creamy Irish Guinness. The Henry Lounge is painted in a classic racing green and features French windows that open out to The K Club’s gorgeous lawns. The Gatsby-style chandeliers in the lounge were taken from the old swimming pool in the hotel, which were fitted by one of the previous owners, Iranian Air Force founder Nader Jahanbani.
