RESTAURANT & BAR AWARDS & REVIEWS
The experience, quality of service and attention to detail that has made our Moorings restaurant such a favourite with visitors and locals alike has been brought to bear on the food we serve in our bar. We have made a conscious effort to not compromise our commitment to great food.
Skilful cooking and flavour cormbinations come to the fore in dishes like The Moorings hot seafood medley of Dingle Bay prawns, Portmagee crab, fresh salmon and cod in light cream sauce with lemon and garlic.
Local suppliers lead menus featuring pan-fried Valentia scallops, Cromane mussels and oysters and Cahirciveen smoked salmon.
Diners can choose from just-arrived catch of the day posted on blackboards and may be lucky enough to coincide with a rarity like the fresh tuna that is an occasional summer visitor to the Skelligs islands across the bay.
Breakfast guests can enjoy the full Irish with local handmade sausages, oak smoked bacon and Sneem black pudding or the seaside treat of buttery grilled lemon sole.
