Had a lovely 2 night stay in the moorings last weekend and i must say, the food was pretty spectacular! The oysters were sublime, as were our mains of seafood risotto and the largest scallops ive ever seen! A little on the pricey side but the service was fantastic and rhe atmosphere is unrivalled round this beatiful part of the country. Highly recommended to anyone passing through or staying in Portmagee.

We ate here on our final night of the August bank holiday weekend and the meal was the best one all weekend - absolutely superb! The menu was very hard to choose from as everything was so tempting. Although there is obviously an emphasis on seafood, as I can get excellent seafood close to home I ended up opting for the pork with mustard sauce as a main, which was really tasty. They were willing to serve the scallop special as a starter and that was wonderful. My husband had a crab plate with crab in various guises, all of which were delicious. I didn't think I'd have room for dessert, but the banana and chocolate bread & butter pudding was just too tempting - and well worth it. Service was friendly and efficient at all times. We had tried to book accommodation here but there were no vacancies. Given our experience we'll definitely aim to stay here another time we're in the area.

The seafood chowder at the Bridge Bar (part of the Moorings) is the best I've had in Ireland. I've had it probably 10 times, and each time it's different. What does that tell you? It's fresh! They make it based on what's come in off the boat! I've been here alone, with a couple and with friends - it's aways good. Sometimes can be crowded during the season so make sure to get in early for lunch! Very convenient to the bridge, as well.....

Driving around the Ring of Kerry, we had been advised to take the road to Portmagee and eat at The Moorings. On a beautiful evening we duly did so and were not disappointed. Setting wonderful overlooking the harbour. Service excellent. Food to die for - prawns in filo pastry and other mixed fish to start. Monkfish (best ever tasted), a mixed seafood platter which two of us could not finish - mussels, crab claws, salmon (smoked and baked), two flat fish and lots more. Fantastic food and an excellent wine list. Top marks and we look forward to a return visit. The restaurant was almost fully booked when we got there - great sign mid-week :-)

This place is divided into a pub and a restaurant, we ate in the pub part. We shared a plate of mussels in a lemony, garlicy cream sauce (12euro) - it was scrumptious, the sauce was delicious! And twas enough food for two for a light lunch.
