The staff was friendly and nice. The food was good. My seafood chowder was very tasty and my sandwich was also good.

The bar tenders are friendly and there is ample seating for moderate sized parties. The seafood is especially tasty with ample portions.

We visited here and stayed in PortMagee the night before we did Skellig Michael. It's one of the few options in the area, but it really was some of the better pub food we've had. I had grilled hake, and it was so so good....More

We ate here after going on the Skellig Michael landing tour. It was the perfect place to relax and enjoy a nice lunch and an adult beverage as we simply had to walk across the street from the marina. Good food and good service.

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.
