Went on a Sunday night to listen to the live music. Music was great, a traditional Irish session. Place was packed. Strange rule in place, you could only sit at the tables if you were eating. Otherwise, stand or sit at the bar. Staff not...More

Shame his place. Food ok, but without a booking had to wait for average food and not cheap. Had a much better experience elsewhere next day on Valentia and in Portmagee Shame

Upon returning from skellig Michael I was hungry and thirsty, this restaurant was busy but produced my order in record time! The fact that it was freshly made and delicious just made it all the better. Perfect.

Friendly service. Food was good. Bar staff friendly. Star wars cast and crew visited here so interesting to fans from that view point.

The Bridge Bar at The Moorings, Portmagee is open all year round. Great food served all day with traditional music at weekends. Trips to Skellig Michael can be arranged and packages are available from April to September. Cois Cuain gift shop is open from March to January. The Moorings is located in a fishing village with a working harbour, post office, general store, coffee shop, bar, restaurant overlooking Valentia Island. There's nothing more endearing than knowing that some of the Hollywood's biggest movie stars like Mark Hamill and Director J.J Abrams have visited the sleepy village of Portmagee, and even sat in the Bridge Bar local pub where Mark Hamill poured a pint of Guinness behind the bar. The Moorings was home to the pre-production team of the Star Wars VII movie and you can visit the room where all the magic took place and listen to the stories told by the staff.
