About Us

Killarney Credit Union is a local, not for profit financial institution. We specialise in providing a safe place for savings and loans in our community. Established in 1970, Killarney Credit Union is proud of its heritage and continues to be governed by our members and voluntary Board of Directors.

Membership of Killarney Credit Union stands at over 25,000 members and we currently employ 25 staff (full time/part time) in our three offices at Beech Road, Park Road and Kenmare.

A credit union is a group of people who save together and lend to each other at a fair and reasonable rate of interest. We offer members the chance to have control over their own finances by making their own savings work for them. Killarney Credit Union is owned by the members — the people who save and borrow with it — people like you.

We are affiliated to the Irish League of Credit Unions. We are goverened by the Central Bank of Ireland.
