An unusual and elegant combination of modern design and Victorian architecture combined with 19th-century industrial construction awaits visitors to this hotel at 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 estuary. The restaurant serves superb Irish
specialties such as Connemara lamb and local scallops, with a carefully selected wine list to go with them, while the Chill Spa offers a variety of massages and therapeutic treatments. Contemporary paintings by leading Irish artists adorn the walls.
