Although the name of this hotel invokes an image of the famous sculpted ice palaces of Scandinavia, the Ice House Hotel’s name is actually derived from its structure. Originally known as the Iceland Cottage, the hotel is a blend of the 19th-century building and the contemporary floor-to-ceiling glass installation. The hotel is situated on the River Moy Estuary in Ballina, Ireland, offering panoramic views of the river, seaport, and the woodlands beyond.
The 32 bedrooms and suites at the Ice House Hotel create a unique fusion of traditional elegance and contemporary chic with king-sized beds, flat-screen televisions, fully stocked bathrooms, and floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning views. The eye-catching details, such as the original artwork, waterside hot tubs, saunas, and goose-down duvets, are what make this hotel stand apart from the competition. In addition, the small size of the hotel is intentional to allow the staff to provide each visitor with exceptional, personalized service.
Guests can enjoy first-class dining or ice-cold cocktails at the Pier Restaurant and Cocktail Bar set above the River Moy. The award-winning spa is sure to soothe away any stress and worries upon arrival. For golf enthusiasts, the concierge can arrange access to some of the country’s best links and parkland courses around Enniscrone, Carne (Belmullet), Ballina, Strandhill, Sligo, and Rosses Point. Each of the courses offers different levels of difficulty and all guarantee a great time.
The Ice House Hotel offers an intimate and tranquil environment for all its guests. This Irish gem provides luxurious accommodations, personalized service, and world-class dining that is second to none.
