I am going to do two reviews on this location ,the first for the hotel and the other for the restaurant as to do both together would be a great disservice on a fantastic hotel. On arrival there was ample free parking but unfortunately it was all full eventually after a few passes we got a space.The receptionist was very...

I visited the Ice House from the 20th to the 22nd April having already stayed there last September. This hotel really has everything I consider to be required for a relaxing stay. On arrival, there is plenty of free parking and once inside the friendly staff at reception brought me to my room. The first night was spent in one...

We had a wonderful time at The Ice Housr Hotel. We stayed for 2 nights. The food and wine were excellant. The staff were friendly and helpfull. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. We loved the "The Hot Tub" idea outside and looking on to the river, with all the wild life. The spa was the best. I would...

The Ice House in Mayo - a little heaven for relaxation: from clever architecture, the Moy flowing by your room, birds and boats watching, art of local artists to divine spa and fine dining. Wish we had stayed longer... Signature treatments in the spa are the best to choose: Secret de Beauté and VOYA Pure Organic Peppermint Seaweed Sugar Glow...

Myself and my partner stayed in this hotel from 9th to 11th of April in a voucher, we had heard lovely comments about it and we were very excited. We arrived at 12 which was three hours before checking time, understandably the room was not available yet. However, the receptionist was quite sharp and unfriendly as she told us to...

Really nice location, lovely views from the room, right beside the lake, nice spa, friendly staff and great food and drinks. Perfect for romantic couples break. Bit of walk into town but it's such a nice hotel you would be happy to stay close by.

Stayed in The Ice House Hotel for one night. The suite was a walk past the Spa, this was rather strange- if somebody was heading towards their rooms whilst chatting they could easily be heard in the treatment rooms. Our River Suite was lovely, with beautiful views of the River Moy, the balcony was a great feature too. We dined...
