The Ice House Hotel, built in 1836, was originally called the ‘Iceland Cottage’ and housed the Moy Fishery managers. In this strategically positioned building on the Moy Estuary (which became the principal sea-port of Ireland in the late eighteenth/early nineteenth century), tonnes of wild salmon were once preserved under ice before being shipped to the markets of Dublin and Liverpool. Today the modern and traditional are fused in this award-winning hotel and spa. During a one-hour tour of the building, owner Pearse Farrell will talk about the heritage of the building, and will guide you through its noteworthy collection of contemporary art.
