Amid 550 acres of County Kildare in east-central Ireland, the K Club is among the country's most extravagant resorts and oldest estates. The land was settled in 550 and has been home to prominent people including a vintner who, in 1832, built the mansion that houses 69 lavish guest rooms. In your suite bedecked with period furniture, you might forget you're living in the 21st century—till you hit the new spa for a bamboo-and-ginseng body polish. Play the part of the Irish noble and hook rainbows in the Liffey River, which traverses the property. Doubles from $525; 011-353-1601-7200, www.kclub.ie
