Ice House Hotel & Spa Ballina

The Ice House Hotel & Spa is a surprising retreat, perched on the edge of the River Moy in Co. Mayo. Independently owned, this four star hotel is a refreshing distance from the generic trappings of chain hotels - where nothing is defined and anything you need will be catered for in a laid-back, warm and friendly fashion.

Lovingly restored from its historic status as a 19th Century “Ice Store”, the Ice House is a member of Ireland's Blue Book of Irish Country Houses, Historic Hotels & Restaurants and enjoys the sort of unfussy, modern panache expected of a contemporary rustic retreat, two centuries later. There are 32 luxurious bedrooms and suites, waterside hot tubs, the intimate Chill Spa, chic design and a standard of food celebrated by the Country’s leading critics.

All of the 25 bedrooms and 7 Suites at the Ice House are one-of-a-kind, each one individually named and themed. Paying careful tribute to the original treatment and purpose of the building, rooms have been designed specifically with different tastes in mind.
All bedrooms at the Ice House feature soft goose down duvets & pillows, big pillow-topped beds, gorgeous fluffy towels, Voya lotions and potions, separate bath and shower, flatscreen TVs, Wi-Fi, under floor heating and GHD hair straighteners.

Since it first opened its doors, the Ice House hotel restaurant, under direction of the Head Chef, has pursued and enjoyed a consistent level of dining excellence, celebrated by Ireland’s leading food critics on an ongoing basis and winning a number of restaurant awards along the way. Breakfast in bed, chocolate-dipped strawberries in your bedroom, open sandwiches on the terrace, afternoon tea in one of the corner-snugs or a host of beautifully presented, delicious dishes from the kitchen at sundown – they have something for everybody.

Chill Spa at the Ice House is intimate enough to feel like you’re the only person there - but big enough to offer all of the whims and things you fancy and expect from a deluxe 4 Star Hotel and Spa. A comprehensive and colourful list of treatments have been stitched together by the team of experienced therapists with carefully chosen products from YONKA and Irish-made organic seaweed based VOYA - creams, gels and oils – all available to buy once you’ve tried and tested them.

The Ice House is situated beside some of the most dramatic golfing Ireland has to offer – including world-renowned golf courses such as Enniscrone, Carne (Belmullet) and Ballina. Strandhill, County Sligo Golf Club and Rosses Point are also all within very easy distance.
