Had a really nice time in the ice house great food and friendly professional staff. The location is lovely and relaxing and central to all of the popular area s. The beach in Inishmore is well worth a visit

We recently dined in the restaurant as a family of 6, the location and view are stunning so we waited to see if the food matched up. Unfortunately the amuse bouche was a bad omen and the starters failed to hit the mark . Main course of turbot at a pricey 30 euro was overcooked and chewy, the hake wasnt... More

We stayed for a night very friendly staff very quiet and amazing views- make sure you book a riverside room. Would visit again!! We had dinner in the hotel in the evening which was also very nice and simple but good cooking.

Room had a damp smell. Room was dirty. Windows on landing overlooking river were filthy. Sofa in breakfast area had a large rip in the material. Built to a high standard but not maintained since it was built.

Great package deal comprising tea and scones, spa treatments, then lunch. Everything was really excellent, staff were attentive, food delicious and spa treatment really relaxing and of a high standard. Would highly recommend. Not cheap, but worth it.

We visited here whilst on holidays for dinner. The menu before we visited was superb but the food was just the best we have eaten for many years. The only small gripe I have is that the bar and restaurant are all one and some people were not eating beside us.

Beautiful river view Excellent food Good variety in the lunch menu Hard to find waiting staff Staff were functional but not overly friendly or available The outdoor hot tubs are quite exposed from both the roadside boardwalk & the restaurant. You won't get much privacy there especially at meal times. This has put me off availing of the Spa facilities... More

My wife and I with a friend visited the Ice House Restaurant for Sunday Lunch. The views from the restaurant across the river are worth the visit. The day we visited the weather was cool so we opted for indoors however there is an outside seating area which on a warm day would be delightful area to eat. The staff... More

We returned to the Ice House after a wonderful visit last May and we weren't disappointed. We were greeted by a friendly receptionist and shown to our lovely bright clean room with wonderful views of the River Moy. We had dinner that evening and the food was fantastic. The breakfast was excellent with a friendly staff on hand. We look... More
