Myself and my partner had a fantastic stay at the Ice House. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel decor was minimalist and striking. Dinner and cocktails were excellent quality. The Spa itself was very nice, I had the hot stone massage and couldn't recommend tgis treatment enough. The breakfast wasn't great however which was my only dissappointment,... More

We stayed in the Still room. I don't think we've had a quieter room in any hotel. Unfortunately, we arrived late to the hotel after a wedding at Belleek Castle and couldn't see the view. The next morning blew our socks off. The hallway to the room was floor to ceiling glass with a spectacular view of the boats on... More

Good choice for short stay - no kids. Restaurant food is really brilliant. Service excellent and the interior is really tasteful. Breakfast is fab - again great service. One thing - DO NOT start to look at the heron that nests across the river. You can see him from your table at breakfast, at dinner and even from your room.... More

We have just returned from our second stay here and it was just as brilliant as the first! Great location, rooms, staff & service as well as top notch food - would particularly recommend he chocolate dessert plate! One of the best hotels in Ireland.

My wife and I are just back from two nights in the ice house hotel. It was a long journey of 4 and a half hours from where we live but it was well worth it. It was our first 2 night trip away from the kids so what we wanted was relaxation and a luxury treat and the icehouse... More

We arrived to our room to find some chocolates and some prosecco. It was a lovely first touch given we were on our honeymoon. The place was just fabulous with the health spa and the food. We had lunch and dinner there over 2 days and the food was exquisite. We really enjoyed our time here so we booked it... More

Having been looking forward to staying here. I was disappointed. For the rate charged, I would have expected a concierge and that extra attention to detail that you expect at that level - however, this was sadly lacking. Clearly, a major investment was made in this place at the time it was first converted. however, it is now looking tired... More

We stayed for one night. And let me tell you one night was more than enough. From no parking, to a basic room, to the worst meals I have ever had. It was meant to be a romantic night away. From the staff friendliness (or lack of) to the dodgy meal that evening and an even worse breakfast. There is... More

Really loved my stay at the Ice House, staff were lovely, we enjoyed our immensely. Do try the outdoor hot tub on the River Moy. We had a lovely meal, Vegan diet no issue at all. The rooms are a really special experience, bed linen is fab, we had a lovely sleep.
