Ice House Hotel and Spa Review

An unusual and elegant combination of modern design and Victorian architecture combined with 19th-century industrial construction awaits visitors to the mouth of the River Moy. Originally a warehouse used to chill fish prior to shipping, with a Victorian residence stuck in the middle of it, today's Ice House is a supremely comfortable and aesthetically impeccable construct of glass, wood, and steel overlooking the Moy estuary. The restaurantserves superb Irish specialties such as Connemara lamb and local scallops, with acarefully selected wine list to go with them, while the Chill Spa offers a variety of massages and therapeutic treatments.
