The perfect base to explore the Wild Atlantic Way

Welcome to the Ice House Hotel situated on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way.  Located right beside North Mayo’s rugged coastline and the Sligo’s surfing mecca, the Ice House Hotel Ballina is perched on the edge of River Moy, Ireland’s most famous salmon fishing river. The hotel is a stone’s throw of great waves, great golf courses, national heritage sites, including the famous Céide Fields, Downpatrick Head and Dun Briste sea stack and the abbeys and monasteries of Killala.

Avail of our Bed & Breakfast rate and start to plan your trip to beautiful North Mayo.

BOOK NOW

A half hour’s drive from Ireland West Airport, less than an hour from Sligo Airport, 2 hours’ drive from Dublin Airport and less from Galway. Car Hire companies are located at all three airports and we recommend that you book an automatic car in advance of your arrival. In Ireland we drive on the left hand side, operate speed limits in kilometres and also have 3 pin plugs like the UK.

Our funky furnishings, eclectic styling and stunning architectural design at the Ice House combine to make you feel like you’re in the heart of the city. One look at the unrivalled view from all our rooms and you’ll immediately know you’re not. The Ice House is a member of Ireland’s Blue Book, the most prestigious association of country houses, individual hotels, and restaurants in Ireland. With great service, fantastic food, fine wines, clever cocktails and Ireland's best boutique hotel spa guaranteed to soothe, the Ice House is unlike any other hotels in Mayo. Discover the best of both worlds here in Ballina and make the Ice House your… escape to the extraordinary.

“…the very definition of a hip luxury retreat, a perfect getaway from the stresses of modern life…” Lucinda O’Sullivan, Sunday Independent.

Leave on a medium heat making sure the edges are not sticking till they have a nice colour and turn them, then let them colour the other side before taking them off to cool a little.
Now dust them with icing sugar, stack four on a plate and serve with the jam, cream and maple syrup as per the picture.
