Pets Welcome

Pets are welcome on request and we have two dog boxes available for use during your stay.  We would kindly request that pets be kept downstairs and away from the bedrooms and that they sleep outside.  An additional charge of €25 euro per pet per stay will apply, this is payable onsite to the caretaker.


The Moorings are situated right on the edge of town, with restaurants, shops and nightlife all on hand, yet still only a short drive from the beach.  Indeed, being within an easy walk of the town’s many friendly and lively pubs means no problems with having a sociable drink in the evening; a plus factor that makes for the most relaxed of stays.  For most holidaymakers, this convenience is a considerable recommendation when choosing where to stay.

Whether it’s couples seeking a romantic break, energetic hiking groups yearning to stretch their legs, families with young children that can’t wait to get going with a bucket and spade on golden sands, or devotees attending one of the hugely popular festivals held throughout the year, everyone loves coming to this part of West Cork.  Visitors from abroad are especially taken with the combination of friendly welcoming atmosphere and stunning scenery, and having once experienced it come back again and again.  In fact the number of famous names with a bolthole here would surprise you.  You could well bump into actor Jeremy Irons and wife Sinead Cusack, who restored nearby Kilcoe Castle, for example, while doing your weekend shopping at the Farmers Market.
