We had a lot of really rampant ivy when we moved here
We just cut it back and dug it out - it took all the autumn and most of the winter, but we got rid of it all
Because ivy has shiny leathery leaves it tends not to absorb weedkiller easily anyway, and the best time to spray it is when it's actively growing and there are tender new pale green leaves and that will be in the spring. If you get on with digging it out it'll all be gone by spring.
