As the name suggests, Lough Acoose House is situated beside a lake which is at the foot of the MacGillycuddy Reeks. It is the first guest house the Kerry Way reaches on its approach to Glencar.
There are six bedrooms in the house, three of which have direct access from outside. Guests are welcome to pick their own room when they check in. All bedrooms are ensuite with shower, and a television. Tea or coffee is served on arrival and guests can help themselves to more at anytime in the kitchen.
Evening meals and packed lunches can be organised given enough advance notice. Walkers can arrange to have their luggage transferred to the next accommodation on the Kerry Way and can also get their clothes washed and dried for a small fee. Large groups can also be catered for.
Camping is permitted outside the guesthouse at 9 per person with access to showers. Breakfast and dinner are also available if required. Advance notice should be given.
Lough Acoose House is ideally located for walkers who wish to climb Ireland's highest mountain, Carrauntoohil (1,039m). Only hikers competent with a compass should consider this walk.
Alternatively, bicycles can be hired out which are delivered from Killarney. A cycle around Lough Caragh is recommended.
