New K Club owners offer hotel to Government to battle coronavirus

Straffan hotel offer

The new owners of the K Club have offered the hotel at the club to the Government and the Health Service Executive (HSE).

A spokesperson for the K Club said nothing has been agreed with the HSE yet and the offer has been made in that context. 

In a statement, the K Club said: “It is clear now that there is no defined period for when the current pandemic will pass. With this in mind, the owners of The K Club have decided that, in the national interest and in the interest of the local community, they are making the hotel at The K Club available to the Government and to the HSE. The hope is that its location and setting will make life a little more comfortable for the emergency staff, first responders and citizens who may need it during this time.”
