Athough not really a hotel as in multinational status it is milions of times better as your... More

We stayed there for two nights 1st/2nd january, and it was a great stay. Rooms have a lovely homely feel, and the bar/restaurant is excellent, food is great, staff are friendly, great atmosphere. The Breakfast menu is very good, with lots of options. My compliments in particular to a girl Colleen who checked us in and out, for her friendliness,... More

The only problem with The Moorings is it's addictive, Just back from my New Year's Eve stay in my 3rd visit since August. It has everything to offer. The bed and breakfast is more than a bed and breakfast, the rooms are amazing , so comfortable and clean, the staff at reception are so pleasant from booking all the way... More

Do not be deceived by the meager reception area. He rooms are large, modern and well maintained. The breakfast was among the best I have had. I ordered black sole which was lightly battered and perfectly cooked. The location is beautiful right across the street from the pier.

We stayed here a few weeks ago whilst travelling around the ring of kerry. The staff are extremely friendly, the accommodation itself was also clean, spacious and well maintained. However we seemed to be unlucky with the room we were given. No. 12 I believe it was, the music from downstairs in the bar echoed loudly throughout the room the... More

Huge choice of breakfast each morning served by very helpful & friendly staff in a beautiful marine themed restaurant. We ate each day in The Bridge Bar also part of the Moorings. Great... More

We paid the extra for a superior room with view. Portmagee is a tiny spot so not a lot of accomodation around. Superb location. Our window view was over the wharf and inlet. Enjoyed watching the working boats. Large comfortable room and very firm comfortable bed. We had room to relax and unwind and we're delighted to be able to... More

Average standards, but there are few alternatives in Portage. Comfortable but the the whirlpool function on the bath did not work and although the room was supposed to be made-up every day, it was not. Bit noisy on our first night to the early hours of the morning (3am) as Ireland were playing France at Rugby and also later they... More

Big room, we spread our luggage out on the desk and coffee table. Bathroom was clean and had a good shower. We ate dinner in the pub both nights, (sea)food was great. The pub was absolutely slammed on a Tuesday night (cuz Star Wars...which I don't think is typical), but Kieron kept us informed and fit us in...which was representative... More
