Check In, Chill Out: We’ve Discovered The Perfect Summer Escape


Dive into summer at The Ice House Hotel in Co Mayo where panoramic views, impressive spa and wellness facilities and indulgent dining ensure guests relax and reset fully …

Ancient Greek philosophers understood the benefits of slow living – that sense of being in harmony with our natural rhythms. And it’s the idea of the good life – where body, mind and soul find balance in nature – that is the inspiration behind The Ice House Hotel in Co Mayo. It’s a serene and seriously luxurious summer escape where guests can’t fail to change gear on check-in. Perfectly situated for a summer break, guests can explore miles of stunning coastline along the Wild Atlantic Way as well as historic landmarks and scenic landscapes.

Meander along the river, try a fishing excursion, paddle board on the River Moy. In a world where wellbeing is the ultimate definition of luxury, the Ice House Hotel offers the perfect blend of relaxation and adventure. Time your visit right and you can enhance your stay with a full moon guided meditation ritual too. 

And at the hotel’s Chill Spa guests can relax in its Aromatherapy Room, refresh in the Experience Showers and drift away in the Snooze Room. Its snazzy outdoor thermal extension includes The Wellness Room – a duo therapy pod with Gharieni quartz treatment beds inspired by Egyptian rituals. In addition, there are sunken outdoor hot tubs and baths (for two) for bathing rituals, while The River Room – a glazed room on stilts over the river – offers great views of the river estuary, the woods, its nature and wildlife.

The finale to any day is dinner in the hotel’s 54° 9° Restaurant where locally-sourced cuisine takes centre stage, and panoramic river views provide the backdrop for fantastic food, fine wines and tasty cocktails.

If all this sounds tempting, then take advantage of some exciting summer offers. There’s something for everyone, from action-packed itineraries to lazy days spent doing not much at all. Book your stay today and discover the best of North Mayo and the Wild Atlantic Way!
