Excellent service complimented by excellent food. The foods are combined very well and the delicate flavours are to die for.

Had a really nice evening meal here. Staff were really attentive and snappy with service. Lovely warm open fire, very tasty food (fish cakes are delicious!) and nice relaxed atmosphere! Great stopover on route to Valentia Island. Really liked the maritime theme of the pub, would highly recommend for dinner!

Called into the Bridge Bar in the Moorings Pub for lunch in pouring rain whilst driving the Ring of Kerry. Super seafood chowder full of fish, large sandwiches, excellent beer, good atmosphere, would recommend and revisit. Then after eating go and look at the very interesting Skellig Experience on the island.

What a wonderful surprise to find this pub way out at the end of the Ring of Kerry. The food was outstanding. The sole was sauté perfectly. The mussels were out of this world. The pub atmosphere and staff were superb as well.
