Situated right in the middle of the town, this is ideal for anyone wanting to take a boat trip out to the Skelligs (but book in advance!). The rooms are pleasant and quiet, the reception desk very helpful. We particularly liked the in-house restaurant, where excellent evening meals as well as breakfast were available.

We were lucky to get a room here, another party had cancelled. Not many rooms so be sure to book well in advance. If you're planning a trip out to the Skelligs you couldn't find a more convenient place to stay overnight beforehand or afterwards. The lovely couple who run the B&B have contacts among the boatmen who take visitors... More

This is a small B&B which is located opposite the port jetty. The room was spacious and very comfortable, nice shower within bathtub. B&B has restaurant and bar attached. Breakfast was quite a treat: fruits, pastry, bread, cheese as well as choice of hot meal. I chose fish and it was very well prepared. Also had dinner in the restaurant,... More

The moorings was perfect for us...we wanted a clean friendly place to stay while enjoying the beauty of the surrounding area. The staff was extremely accommodating. Breakfast was hearty and tasty. LOVED Skellig Michael. Recommend walking the Bray Head trail near by.

Beautiful home with a large bathroom and friendly staff. Breakfast in the morning was wonderful and plentiful. We actually were late leaving and the staff stayed for us and assured us we should not rush. We went to the neighboring Bridge Bar for dinner and had excellent soup and veggie curry. In addition, we popped over to The Fisherman's for... More

Nice hotel. Clean. New fluffy towels. The food was wonderful. Breakfast was awesome selection, quick and well presented. Only downside was no wifi. Talking with locals wifi and phones hardly ever work. Even wireless only had single bar. Supposed to be on VACATION, so to check out of daily living was almost a relief. No elevator and room was in... More

Myself, my husband and our friends over from England had the good fortune to stay in the Moorings for an overnight. It's a friendly place in the fishing village of Portmagee. Book to avoid disappointment as this is a popular venue. We all enjoyed a fantastic meal in the bar area (the restaurant wasn't open that night) and people were... More

Irish hospitality, music, dancing and dining in a wonderful setting at The Moorings in Portmagee. We stay here on every trip to Ireland in one of their lovely Sea View rooms. The food in the Dining Room is amazing and features fresh fish from the local fishermen. The vibrant local pub has great food and is always fun. Don't miss... More
