I had such a nice time staying there and eating at its restaurant. It was all so warm and cozy, in more ways than one, the perfect balance to the risky challenge of going to Skellig Michael! All the employees were so very helpful, and I loved my room, but the restaurant was best. It was so cozy I could... More

Had a seafood chowder here a couple of years ago on a road trip and we vowed to return and stay for a couple of nights. We did and were certainly not disappointed. Real homely little place. not the Ritz but nice room and lovely served breakfast. The bar is great for food as well and there was good music... More

While touring Ireland with CIE tours (highly recommend them), we stopped off for lunch at The Moorings. It was quaint, clean, great food, very pleasant service, & scenic location. The town is a picturesque sight & this restaurant is perfect in this place. If you're sighting in the area, don't miss out on this place. You'll be glad you did!

Stopped by randomly on a long drive along the coast. Very happy we did. everything was very good but the chowder was amazing. I made it a point to get chowder in every restaurant we ate at and this was by far the best. And the owner I presume was very charming and warm which was nice. We didn't get... More

We stopped here for lunch on a 6 day coach tour of Ireland. The service was outstanding. My wife and I had the fish and chips. Very fresh and tasted great. The meal arrived at the table hot and very soon after placing our order. 39 people on the tour and all lunches were severed on time with a smile.... More

Not many choices in Portmagee. This was across from the boat dock after getting back from Skelli Island. Average food. Excellent seafood chowder though. Very large chunks of fish.

Stopped here for lunch near the end of our 8 day tour of Ireland. The fish and chips was the best we had on the trip and we had eaten it several times. Service was great and the hospitality was too. It is in close proximity to the Skellig Experience. A nice area to walk after lunch also.

I have eaten in the bar here before and the food is great. This was my first time eating in the restaurant. We had a é30 starter, mains, dessert deal. The ordinary menu is expensive, there is no doubt. And even our menu did not actually contain any red meat, just pastas, chicken, and seafood. But, the food is just... More

Nice burger and chips here. Staff friendly. You can sit outside across the road with the view of the harbour and Valencia island

Deep fried scorched oven chips which were then clearly microwaved? And Battered fish that looked and tasted about a week old. They can't even do the 3 Bs here - beer, batter and bread. Was here with friends who had the same opinion. Unfortunately we had a couple of drinks so in spite of our local friend warning us off... More
