I would love to give this 5 stars cause it's a great place but I didn't like the flavor of my meal. It could be that I'm use to a different type of fish and chips back in the states but considering this part of the world created the fish and chips combo I just expected more. It was good... More

Very popular place, and very crowded on the Saturday night, but the staff handled the crowd excellently. The food was delicious.

My son and I visited to enjoy a day at the Skelligs. This restaurant had great service and good food. It was so good, in fact, that we ate lunch there two days in a row. I would highly recommend the Bridge for a good meal!

Mussels and seafood chowder were fantastic and the service was very warming and efficient. Pints by the fire topped it off.

I loved eating here and drinking here. The steak was perfection and well deserved after a hike up Skelig Michael. I was a solo traveler and both nights I met locals from the area who invited me to sit with them and were quite nice. The music there one of the nights was fantastic!

We stopped at the Bridge Bar for lunch as part of a private tour through Ring of Kerry and Skellig Ring. It was a lively placed with great food and drinks. It's a nice spot right across from the boats.

Food was terrific. Service equals food. Nice atmosphere. We had sweet & sour chicken, pasta, tortellini, and ribs with pork chops. This really was a delightful meal. Highly recommend.

Description
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.
