Upon arrival at the Ice House Hotel in Ballina, you are greeted with a wonderful fusion of old and new. Transparent modern glass structures marry the original 19th century building with our cool and contemporary additions. The two very distinct interior design styles are woven in to an eclectic mix. Together they form the perfect accent to the amazing views that stretch across the River Moy to the woodlands beyond making the Ice House one of the finest hotels in Mayo.


Originally called the ‘Iceland Cottage’ this luxury Ice House hotel in Mayo is a building steeped in history. Strategically positioned on the Moy Estuary, (which became the principal sea-port of Ireland) in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century tons of wild salmon where preserved here under ice before being shipped to the markets of Dublin and Liverpool. Today it stands built anew, once again a place to rest a while…but in an altogether different kind of cool.


Contemporary chic meets traditional elegance throughout Mayo’s 4 Star Ice House Hotel. It’s the little details you remember. Like the comforting goose down duvets, the waterside hot tubs and sauna and the original pieces of art that catch your eye everywhere. Created by three of Irelands finest artists…Charles Tyrrell, Martin Gale and John Devlin…like the Ice House itself they are far from ordinary. Ask for our special guidebook at reception and enjoy the show.


With just 32 bedrooms and suites, at this boutique Ballina hotel you can look forward to personal service that is second to none. We’re here to make your stay special. It’s that simple. We pride ourselves on the little extras that make a stay extraordinary. First class food and drink, VOYA organic seaweed lotions and potions, comfort with spectacular views and an award winning Chill Spa that guarantees to soothe are just the beginning.
