Welcome to the Moorings
Thanks for taking the time to visit us here at the Moorings Portmagee. Even after 25 years, we still feel blessed to live in this special corner of South Kerry just off the Ring of Kerry, with spectacular scenery on our doorstep and a wealth of history, culture and local traditions around us, but our greatest pleasure is sharing all this with our guests.
Whether you are stopping off on your journey along the Wild Atlantic Way, hoping to visit the Skellig Islands, looking to experience Irish traditions first-hand at one of our local festivals or music sessions or just looking for peace and seclusion, your stay at The Moorings can offer it all. Choose to eat in our award-winning Seafood Restaurant or in the cosy Bridge Bar - voted Munster's Best Gastro Pub in the 2013 Restaurant Association Awards - before retiring to one of our newly refurbished bedrooms for a relaxing night's sleep followed by a full Irish breakfast to set you up for a new day.
As we like to say about the Moorings, it's the home of beautiful memories and we feel honoured and privileged to be in such a fortunate position where we can help create wonderful memories for our guests.
We hope you enjoy the site.
