The seafood was delicious and the room is nice and cosy. The staff here really make the difference. We were served by two lovely friendly staff, one Dutch and one local from Valentia and the manger came round to the tables to say hi. All...with very good Covid safety procedures in place. We would highly recommend here. Couple from DublinMore

I recently spent 3 nights here and can only say as a first solo trip it could not have been better. The staff were friendly, the food superb, rooms spacious and location stunning. The owner Gerry's attention to his guests, stopping at each table in...the morning and evening to advise on local attractions and enquire how the day went, to ensure everything was up to standard, was very impressive. Clearly there is a good team at work here. Given the current Covid issue, I felt very safe with the hygiene protocols they have in place. I can only conclude by saying I look forward to returning here again and would highly recommend this place as a destination. Aine ColemanMore

Myself and my friends stopped off here after a day of siteseeing. We were greeted by very friendly staff on arrival and we were all delighted with our food. We got the seafood special, the seafood linguine and the steak and all thought it was...the best meal of our trip. After the meal we had a drink outside on their benches overlooking the harbour. Would definitely recommend stopping off if anyone is in the area!More

I had the roast of the day and it was absolutely delicious. After a long day of sight seeing, if you are looking for a good feed look no further. To make things even better the pints served are of the highest quality. The cherry...on top is the staff who I cannot stress enough are some of the most helpful and friendliest people you will ever meet. If I could give this place more than 5 stars I would!More

I have just enjoyed a magnificent 3day walking trip around Valentia Island and the beautiful Skelligs ring. Stayed at the Moorings where I was looked after so well by Ger and the team in the company of delicious food from their wonderful restaurant. I had...forgotten what good fish tastes like and I hear the Pizzas are a treat too!More
