Firstly let me state that I'm a timeshare owner in this "resort" and have been since it was developed. The term "Country Club" is definitely misleading particularly if one applies the American use of the term.
This development is located in the countryside, with basic amenities, but with everything one needs for an enjoyable self-catering week stay. It has a good on site 'pub', serving food on Sunday and music most weekends in 'high season'. It is within easy travelling distance from all the attractions that Killarney, South Kerry, and West Cork have to offer.
My family & I have used and enjoyed KCC for the last 10 years. Unfortunately, in recent years the general upkeep and appearance of the 'resort' has suffered from lack of investment. This is very disappointing but not something the timeshare association has control over. The timeshare unit that we use (No22) has always been in an acceptable condition (not perfect) and well serviced. Our most recent stay was only last week, end July.
My advise to any intending guest is to manage your expectations. This is self-catering in rural Ireland. Clean linen, towels, furniture in good condition and facilities that work. We haven't experienced the "unsanitary, unsafe" conditions that one reviewer has. Hopefully that was a once off, never to be repeated event.
Yes, the water is on timed (night rate) immersion but there is a 'booster switch' if needed! The kitchen cooker is old fashioned but works perfectly well. If TV is your thing (why I'd ask) the Sat service has more channels than we have at home.
The reception isn't manned every day but is open to match guest arrival patterns. Guests should bring any matters of concern to receptions attention upon arrival or Monday morning if arriving on Sat/Sun. We've found Rosemary very friendly and helpful.
PS The village of Beaufort, 6km away has a great parkland golf course and a fantastic restaurant. Both at very reasonable prices comparer to Killarney itself.
