About The 1780
Dine With Us....
“The 1780” is a Contemporary Irish Fine Dining Restaurant by Tom Walsh. Offering menus using only the very best Irish and in season foods, celebrating all that is great about the Irish Food culture and heritage.
Our wines have been meticulously selected from around the world, and as the patriarchal home of Jameson Whisky, its safe to say we stock all of the most important spirits to tailor your sophisticated taste.
Excellent food, friendly and prompt service, relaxed atmosphere.
I made a reservation for the Seaview Room in March, 2019, expecting to have a view of the Irish Sea. When I called to confirm several days prior to the reservation date I was informed that since the size of our party was 8, we would be moved to the 1780 with a garden view and limited selection menu. Since I was traveling the country on a very tight schedule, I had no time to make alternative arrangements. When we arrived at the hotel, we received little help from the staff directing us to our dining location. When we ordered drinks prior to dinner, the waiter had to go to another level of the hotel to obtain them and could only return with 2 at a time-thus there was a huge time delay before all in our party received their drinks. When we inquired about items on the menu, the initial wait staff did not know the answer to our questions. He did not return and another member of the wait staff appeared to take our order unaware of the questions we asked regarding the menu. The staff was stiff and not interactive. The food presentation was excellent and well prepared. Upon leaving the hotel, the front desk receptionist was very helpful in obtaining transportation back to our airport hotel.
We had a booking for 20 people in the 1780 restaurant to celebrate a 60th birthday. It was a wonderful experience. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. The dining room is very tastefully decorated. And above all the staff and service was excellent, they couldn’t do enough. So very pleasant. Overall an excellent dining experience.
When you're doing Christmas buffet. Please include fresh SLICED turkey, NOT rolled around a piece of ham!.. 3mm thick🦃
The whole experience was amazing from start to finish
Thank you all for a very enjoyable evening, the food, service and attention to detail was excellent. I would in particular like to praise the waitress who served us our meal, unfortunately I cannot remember her name Ingrid?? she was so pleasant and absolutely nothing was a problem for her. Many thanks indeed. Caroline Burke
Excellent as always
Family RYAN had the best evening ever celebrating Fergus’s 70th. Staff lovely and as you can see we gave full marks for everything.
Really enjoyed our time in 1780, from our cocktail upstairs with the amazing views, to our delicious food & wine in 1780, fabulous friendly professional service. I would highly recommend, thank you. Marie
pleasant meal with excellent service.
Wow, that is all I can say - my expectations were well and truly exceeded!! The last time I ate in what was the Osbourne Restaurant, the food and service left a lot to be desired so I was unsure of what to expect this time in the relatively new named 'The 1780'. However, on this occasion Derek Yu and his team provided my dinner party with an exceptional client experience which we are all still raving about - thank you and much appreciated, Bertrand
Very expensive lunch and a mix up with the bill. Coffee was served before desert!
Value for money
Enjoyed my time immensely. All staff members were so helpful & professional. Had a fantastic treatment at the spa, beautiful dinner in 1780 restaurant and topped off with waking up to an amazing sea view in the morning. Fabulous hotel would highly recommend.
a gang of 27 of us in total stayed in the hotel at xmas. We found the food nice with good range of choice. Because it was the festive season we found the bar lacked ambience on Christmas night. Even piped music could have livened up the place. Have stayed in places at Christmas time where entertainment is provided. That would be the only flaw with returning again next year.
Halibut was bland, couldnt taste any seasoning at all. Beef wellington and duck/foie gras ballintine was really taste. Desserts were a good effort but didnt deliever the wow factor. Overall the dishes were just average/flavourless. The experience was a let down due to this because we had huge expectations from the pictures of the website. We felt robbed after the meal
We had a large table of 16 people. It was one of the most awful restaurant experiences I have had. When we arrived our party were on 3 different tables which was not mentioned to be at the time of the booking. There was a lot of confusion before the situation was rectified. But the most disappointing was the food - it was barely edible. The starters were luke warm, tasteless and just not up to standard. For €38 per head for a lunch menu, I would expect a very high standard of food. The turkey and ham was tasteless and lacked any flavour and barely enough portions for one person, I personally had the beef dish and it was just an awful cut of meat- very fatty, the sauce was far too strong and over bearing and again barely warm. The 2 guests that had the hake enjoyed it. The childrens goujons were not fresh and tasted like frozen supermarket goods. It was very disappointing. We had a large family reunion with family home from abroad and it was ruined by the under-performance of your kitchen We are locals but will not be returning to your restaurant nor would be recommend you. We spent almost €1000 in your hotel- a disgraceful amount of money for what we were served.
Extremely happy with the Service , Food, and overall experience
What a lovely dining experience we had in the 1780 restaurant after a most disappointing dining experience in the Jamison bar the previous evening. Our meals were simply fabulous and so was the service, unlike our first evening. The food was cold, served on a freezing plate and even the 'warm apple sponge' was served cold. The red wine must have came straight from the cellar - yes it was cold too. Need a manager in the Jamison bar!!!
Main course was disappointing. As portions very small. Otherwise generally good
overall a very pleasant and relaxing restaurant in which to enjoy excellent food from a comprehensive menu. Easy to offer recommendation to others.
We had an excellent meal in 1780 on Saturday the quality and presentation of food was to a high standard a couple of things to make it better would be we got no veg just potato with main course also was only choice of one fish would prefer more fish on menu also maybe one lower cost house wine. We were on a taste voucher.
Amazing meal & service was exceptional,
This was my third time to dine here and once again I came away extremely impressed. The service team are top class, being professional yet relaxed and friendly with great knowledge of the menu which they are happy to discuss. The food is simply exquisite, from the lovely breads, the creative amuse bouche through to the desserts (which are irresistible)-every course was a delight. I have seen a good range of the dishes at this stage and everyone of them is so well presented and tasty. I would definitely say this is the best hotel restaurant I have ever eaten in. Thanks to all at 1780 for another fantastic meal
Previous offer was better when there was only one menu with all of the best choices and included coffee. It does not seem as special an experience when choosing from a set menu beside an a la carte with some superior dishes.
