Description: The Bridge Bar at The Moorings, Portmagee is open all year round. Great food served all day with traditional music at weekends. Trips to Skellig Michael can be arranged and packages are available from April to September. Cois Cuain gift shop is open from March to January. The Moorings is located in a fishing village with a working harbour, post office, general store, coffee shop, bar, restaurant overlooking Valentia Island. There's nothing more endearing than knowing that some of the Hollywood's biggest movie stars like Mark Hamill and Director J.J Abrams have visited the sleepy village of Portmagee, and even sat in the Bridge Bar local pub where Mark Hamill poured a pint of Guinness behind the bar. The Moorings was home to the pre-production team of the Star Wars VII movie and you can visit the room where all the magic took place and listen to the stories told by the staff.

The Bridge bar is one of the iconic pubs on the wild Atlantic Way. The food is good and the crack can be great at the weekend. It's a stepping stone the famous Skelligs

We enjoyed the food. Even more we enjoyed the Star Wars connection. This can be a busy place and buses stop here. But it is worth it.

Myself and my husband ate in the bridge bar. His spare ribs were fabulous in his own words and my tasting plate was delicious. I’ll be looking forward to coming back here again

We had the special fish of the day and it was literally the best fish of the trip. Good service, it was Ireland's Mother's Day so they had a full compliment of servers. We had the choice of two places to eat lunch the day we were in Portmagee and feel like we chose the best one. Don't bother to try and eat anywhere else along the way, this place fits the bill.
