The accommodation was clean and comfortable and the room and bathroom were fine. The hall/stairs were a bit worst for wear but it is an old hotel. We paid 35 euro pp incl breakfast which I thought was good for what we got. Had dinner in pub which was excellent. Wifi was good Would recommend if u are looking for... More

We wandered into The Moorings in Dungarvan last Wednesday evening expecting standard pub-grub. What we got was way better than that. After a short wait our food arrived and looked really appetising. My husband was more than happy with his fish and chips and my steak was a very good piece of meat beautifully cooked. The people serving the food... More

This B+B is probably the worst I have come across during my recent travels. Apart from the deplorable state of repair of the interior of the building, the television only offered 2 channels; one a continuous reporting on the latest stocks and shares, the other some American Catholic propaganda network. I could not even get the Irish weather forecast. The... More

My brother and I have stayed at " The Moorings " in Dungarvan every Easter for a good long while. We usually settle for a room only deal which is very reasonable. Neat and tidy, this hotel/pub is just off the square in the harbour. The staff are friendly and helpful and the pint is good. The moorings is well... More

Second time around and just as good. We got in for lunch just in time, as the locals came pouring in and filled the place up. Always a good sign. I had the Chowder with Smoked Salmon 'apart' while Marjorie had the Fish Pie; both excellent. Pity we will not be in the area for the foreseeable future.

We arrived in Dungarvan on St. Stephens Day and found that the Moorings was the only place serving food- we were pleasantly impressed by the menu, service and quality. Highly recommend the soup of the day.

Stopped in here for a late lunch on our way from Dublin. I was a bit dubious looking at the outside, somewhat weatherbeaten, though that's not surprising as it's right on the quay! Quite dark inside, with old-style woodern furniture and various nooks and crannies leading to the back, but very comfortable. Service was prompt and friendly; I had excellent... More

This review is about the restaurant only - we did not stay there. Lunch here is a must - and you have to order the seafood chowder. It is delicious! I suggest a side order of garlic bread, although the soup does come with thick slices of soda bread. A pint of Guinness and you're set!
