The Moorings Restaurant

With the ocean’s bounty at our doorstep, it comes as no surprise that seafood plays a large part in The Moorings cuisine. Our menu is rich and varied with nightly specials being chosen based on the availability of the best local produce. We are committed to only using the best quality produce, from delicious artisan and home-made brown breads to the very freshest fish and shellfish, to the choicest Irish beef and locally-produced vegetables and ingredients.

The candlelit interior and traditional stone walls entice you to linger over your meal as you study the unusual memorabilia from seafarers of old. Ships wheels, lobster pots, fishing nets and trusty old barometers are just some of the unique antiques which decorate the Moorings, giving it a unique sense of time and place. Food is never rushed, nor is its enjoyment.

Our restaurant has been consistently commended for the value for money it provides, being named recently in the Irish Independent Weekender as one of the top ten best value restaurants outside of Dublin.

Special Party Menus available at The Moorings, excluding Bank Holiday Weekends. All groups catered for at a range of prices for Birthdays, Anniversaries, Christening, Communion & Confirmation.
