I’ve wanted to go to the icehouse for a while having first seen it in Ireland’s blue book and perhaps because of this and the great reviews my expectations were too high. It didn’t get off to a great start, I was called the night before to ask if I wanted to book for dinner

Hi. Are there family rooms available?
I agree with the above but anytime we have stayed which is very often I have seen kids . Ballina is a vibrant town there is a play area on the cathedral road and a play area near the large store called Archers There are lovely places to eat like the Junction cafe The river suites at the hotel are very large they can cater for children adequately
