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

Port Magee is a lovely little place on the Ring of Kerry (AKA Wild Atlantic Way.) The Moorings is a warm and hospitable bar/restaurant/small hotel. We booked for three nights to visit Skellig Michael and allow for vagaries in the weather. This is recommended as the boats were held up for two days due to stormy conditions. The Moorings had...

This guest house ticks all the boxes. It is very comfortable, the staff are very pleasant, the food is first class. What more can you ask for? Oh yes, the bar is first class too. Even more, there was no carry over of noise to upstairs and so we had very good sleep. We visited here, as most people do,... More

Booked The Moorings on the basis of the proximity to Skelligs trips, and not disappointed. Does all the basics well, but not new, and now perhaps getting a little tired. Staff were very helpful and obliging, good sized room, water/shower hot and plentiful. Breakfast very good, fresh cooked to your liking. Had evening meal in bar, delighted to say lovely... More
