The room was really comfortable and a nice change from the hostels from previous nights. I had a great night sleep. The bathroom was also really spacious and nice
This probably isn't fair because I know there was a funeral in town that day, but I never really met any staff properly. The bar tender checked me in very hurriedly and then the only other person I saw was the woman who served breakfast the next day once I found her. With a guest house I was hoping for a bit more of a personal/warm welcome.
It's located very close to Valentia Island and the view from the window was amazing. I loved the fish and chips they serve in there it's so tasty and originally served.
If I had to pick something up, I'd say it was a bit loud at night, due to the pub music downstairs, but it wasn't really a nuisance.
From the moment we arrived we knew we had come to the right place! So relaxing with loads of sightseeing to do to dust off the cobwebs from Christmas. The moorings was perfect - the food was sensational - hands down best fish and chips in the world. The staff were fabulos and the whole experience is one to be repeated. Will be back for sure
The hot shower - unreal Staff had no problem storing our bikes.
No complaints from us.
Welcome , comfortable bedroom, Great fun night.
The casual dining , thought I was going to a real nice dinner for New Year . It was grand but not what I expected. My fault should have done better research. Despite that I would strongly recommend the Moorings.
Great food, warm friendly atmosphere, very comfortable room.
Simply outstanding , good value and as good or better than many 5 star hotels
A great location at the tip of the Ring of Kerry, right on the harbour.
Staff seemed tired after a hard weekend (big local sporting event). Several Eastern European staff, who didn't provide the warm Irish welcome we had hoped for. Food was OK but not great. A noisy generator or fan outside disturbed my sleep in Room 12.
We booked there well in advance for the Shanty Music Festival hosted and organized by the pub owner. I am so glad we did! We loved the atmosphere in the pub, the food, the location, and the friendly staff. The breakfast buffet and a la carte hot breakfast (included in the room price) were just exceptional.
Location and comfort. Quality of Breskfast very good great choice.
We hit a bad weekend very noisey at night due to a disco.
Perfect location for a place to stay if you want to visit Skellig Michael. The boat dock is directly across the street from the Moorings. A large double bed (US would call it a Queen size bed) in a large room with a large modern bathroom. Everything was spotless. Very clean. Breakfast was outstanding with several different options for a made to order breakfast. Fish, eggs, ham, bacon, Full Irish, lots of choices. Also cereals, juice, coffee, tea. Terrific breakfast. Friday night was a delightful live Irish Music event in the bar. Staff were very friendly, helpful, and polite.
Restaurant not open and had to eat in bar area.....but that's being 'picky'
Fantastic stay at The Moorings great food, warm friendly atmosphere, very comfortable room and fabulous scenery, we will be back very soon.
Everything. If you have a problem here it's your problem.
This is the biggest, and one of the only options in Portmagee and they get a steady stream of people coming to see the Skelligs and in need of accommodations. For these reasons they are able to overcharge for less than stellar rooms. This was the most expensive place we stayed in Ireland and it was also the most run down. Breakfast was quite good though. If I had to do it again I'd stay in another town and drive to Portmagee in the morning to catch the boat.
The staff were attentive and friendly. The food was excellent and the pub provided Irish entertainment, which proved magical.
Not a lot to dislike.
Guest lounge overlooking the sea. Great food both in bar and breakfast choices.Comfortable room. Well equipped bathroom.
Hot duvet. View from bedroom window.
The location across from the dock and on the short main street was perfect, especially for the Skellig Michael tour the next morning.
The staff wasn't particularly friendly and was too busy working in the restaurant. The room had no view and it was kind of a maze to get back to it.
The location was perfect for us, as the hotel is right across the street from where we caught the boat to visit Skellig Michael (the highlight of our trip to Ireland). The food at the hotel was excellent and the wait staff was very nice, especially the woman who waited on us for breakfast. The pan-fried sole (a breakfast dish) and the fish and chips (also sole) were heavenly.
We paid extra for a view of the harbor, but our room had a slanted roof and it was difficult to see out the windows.
location and the lovely room and comfortable bed!
Nothing at all
Enjoyed a most comfortable stay with friendly staff, great breakfast & delicious dinner. Great location to explore Skellig Michael & Valencia Island. Great walks & stunning views. I recommend & hope to return.
There was nothing I didn't like!
The food and service in the restaurant were very good. The breakfast was excellent. The location of the hotel is on the main street in Portmagee and close to all of the local attractions.
The bed was uncomfortable and needs to be replaced.
This is one of the nicest B&Bs we ever stayed at. Maybe the nicest. Staff was outstanding. Helped us book the last two seats on a boat to Skellig Michael. Offered good advice on things to do. Great breakfast.
Colleen on the front desk went above and beyond to get us a booking on the cruise to the Skellig Islands. The room was quiet and we had an easy time finding parking and navigating our way around.
