On a small private island, just off the Wild Atlantic Way, on the truly beautiful Caragh Lake, with fabulous views of the water and surrounded by the McGillicuddy mountains is the luxurious Acorn House, one of only two homes on Madam’s Island.
This is the ideal place to get away from it all, surrounded by the lake, oak trees and fields of sheep, Acorn house has beauty, peace and tranquility. Take a walk to the end of the garden and follow the path down to your own personal slipway on the lake. This place is in the centre of the Reeks District, an area of outstanding beauty with lots of outdoor activities on your doorstep. Fancy a bit of stand up paddle boarding, kayaking or hiking, this is the ideal location. It’s perfect in the summer for eating outside overlooking the lake or cosy in the winter with a real fire lit and snuggling into the cosy couches. Enjoy the drive along the lake before arriving at your house, surrounded by the McGillycuddy Reeks, including the highest mountain in Ireland, Carrauntoohil, making for dramatic views all around..
It’s no wonder that this place was voted one of the "Top 50 Places to Stay" by The Irish Times in 2019.
