Five-day Bieber Fever at Dr Smur­fit’s K Club

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - FRONT PAGE -

Was there a doctor in the house? It would ap­pear not. But bear with me. The K Club — owned by none other than Dr Michael Smur­fit — had Bieber Fever.

The spec­tac­u­larly swish fives­tar ho­tel in Kil­dare played host to Justin Bieber and his en­tourage all last week be­fore his sold-out show at the RDS on Wed­nes­day night.

He stayed in the €20,000-a-night Straf­fan House res­i­dence on the grounds of the 550-acre K Club es­tate for five nights.

Doubt­less he got a sig­nif­i­cant dis­count be­cause this is his sec­ond visit to Smur­fit’s sump­tu­ous es­tab­lish­ment. He flew out for a show in France yes­ter­day morn­ing.

He was spot­ted on the golf course last Tues­day af­ter­noon for a round of golf (and spend­ing time in the rooftop bar of The Marker Ho­tel on Grand Canal Square later last Tues­day).

Irish movie star Victoria Smur­fit, on a whirl­wind visit from her adopted home of Los An­ge­les, was also spot­ted in the fa­mous ho­tel, owned by her un­cle, last week with her kids. But back to the Bieber. The Prince of Pop’s pala­tial home-from-home in Kil­dare came equipped with its own swim­ming pool, plus its own pri­vate chef and staff, plus 10 bed­rooms, its own spa and gym.

That other Prince, Prince Al­bert II of Monaco, and his wife Char­lene and chil­dren, spent 10 days (and pos­si­bly well over €200,000) at Straf­fan House last Christ­mas.
