September 2018 Update: the Ireland K Club is no longer selling fractional ownership, but resales may be available through local real estate brokers.

Condo hotels are now a popular type of vacation ownership throughout Europe.   Many of these condo hotel developers will rent out your unit for you while not in use, and help offset the costs of ownership.

The prestigious Kildare Spa and Country Club (K Club) in Ireland celebrated the launch of its fractional sales program last month with a celebrity golf tournament, the Firstlight Challenge Cup.

Set amongst 550 acres of County Kildare countryside by the River Liffey, the five-star K Club opened in 1991 as a luxurious hotel and country club and is known for the highest standards of comfort, service, and cuisine. The resort features two world-class championship golf courses, one of Europe’s best spas, horseback riding, fishing, and more.

The K Club offers fractional ownership of both apartments and homes, with 6 weeks of usage each year. There are special introductory prices for the launch starting at just €160,000 ($195,200 US) for a 2-bed duplex apartment, €225,000 ($274,500 US) for a 3-bed duplex apartment and from €290,000 ($353,800 US) for a 4-bed house.
