The Ice house then and now ❄️ Beautiful build The Ice house then and now ❄️

Beautiful building with clever architecture. 📖 ⬇️

The building known as the Ice House in Ballina has changed somewhat in 90 years. Now a hotel it was built almost a decade before the Great Famine, in 1836, as the home of the fishery managers. It was composed of the living quarters, an ice store, workshop and boathouse for the fishery boats. Originally called the ‘Iceland Cottage’ this luxury Ice House hotel nestled on the banks of the River Moy in Mayo is a building steeped in history. Strategically positioned on the Moy Estuary. In the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century tons of wild salmon were preserved here under ice before being shipped to the markets of Dublin and Liverpool.
