The Ice House Hotel Mayo was originally called “The Iceland Cottage” or “Iceland House” and was strategically positioned on the Moy Estuary – which subsequently became the principal sea-port of Ireland.
The fisheries were granted to a great number of the nobility from early 17th Century (before 1641) until the beginning of the 19th Century, when the Messrs Little founded the Moy Fishery Company. They spent a huge amount of money rebuilding Salmon Weirs at the falls of the river where drifting nets were positioned further downriver. The great quantities of fish caught here were taken to Killala Bay and transferred to bigger boats that were then exported to Dublin or Liverpool. The River Moy was hugely congested with boats at this time – indeed between 1882 and 1893, the fish exports from the river totalled between 120 and 130 tons of salmon.
There are a range of golf courses along the coast and inland including Enniscrone, Carne Belmullet, Rosses Point & Ballina Golf Club making us one of the very best hotels in Mayo for golf breaks. Please contact reception of this Ballina Hotel Co Mayo and we will be happy to organise an outing for you.
