About The Seaview
Panoramic windows with magnificent views over Dublin Bay and one of Irelands’ best known landmarks, Ireland's Eye, The Seaview is an ideal spot for a gang of friends, or on your own, for fresh coffee, a glass of wine, light meals or our special treat of 'Afternoon Tea-by-the Sea'.

Booked a spa treatment and afternoon tea, girls in the spa were lovely and my massage was fabulous, food presented for afternoon tea was excellent, staff professional and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Views from the restaurant were beautiful,
Very nice setting, very relaxing; view was superb. Very friendly staff. I thought the second tier of the afternoon tea platter was a bit plain, but the rest was very tasty. A second pot of tea would have been nice but, to be fair, I didn’t ask for one. You will need it though. A bit pricy, but I guess that’s par for the course for afternoon tea.
Beautiful room with a view. Afternoon tea was tasty and my pregnancy dietary requirements were taken into account by the attentive staff. Looking forward to going back again when I can eat everything on the menu!
The menu was restricted for a la carte dining but the quality of the food was excellent. The hotel seems to us this area to act as a restaurant when the 1780 isn’t open, it’s more of an area to sit and relax with a drink or coffee than a restaurant. Service was very slow on the night we were there, only two serving staff looking after all the diners. My husband waited 20 minutes for a glass of wine only to be told they didn’t have the one he selected.
Totally enjoy our afternoon tea.
Nice view to the sea
I had won a competition on Facebook for 6 small plates & 2 cocktails in The Seaview & we decided to book into the hotel for two nights as we were coming from Galway. We were told to pick whatever we wanted from the menu & not to worry about prices. My husband & I ordered 6 dishes each. The waiter came back a few minutes later to explain we have won 3 dishes each & will need to pay for any other dishes & the bottles of beer we ordered at first would be in exchange for the cocktails!! I couldn't believe how tight they were, after all we were already staying at the hotel, played golf & had eaten & drank there prior to our sitting. It was as though we were begging! The food itself was awful. The chicken balls could have been anything as couldn't taste chicken, the fish dishes were not good & the tuna & beef were raw. We stayed in the Seaview for drinks into the late hours & the staff were fantastic, super friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The cocktails were very good & the beers were chilled. It was the food that let the place down. The evening before we had Chicken Baguette's & chips in Jameson Bar & it was not good. The chicken was bland. On Saturday we had lunch again in Seaview. I had the Chicken sandwich with chips & my husband had steak. He didn't mention how he would like it cooked & therefore it was almost raw. The chips were nice & again chicken was awful. The food was just terrible & overpriced. On this occasion Portmarnock Hotel let us down regards food. We had breakfast on 2 mornings & our fried eggs were rubbery & on the Saturday morning the sausages were soft. The staff were fantastic & very friendly and make the place very welcoming & warm.
It's certainly no place for a fussy eater. Too little choice on the dinner menu, even though I'd eat pretty much anything. Breakfast was beautiful in the morning. No taytos or nuts at the bar which was also very disappointing. Rooms and service was spot on.
We had a wonderful time at the afternoon tea, fab food, great service and lovely hotel, will be back again soon !!
5 Stars all around. I treated my Aunts as a Christmas present with afternoon tea . It was perfect . Food was amazing . Refills of tea and coffee . Even packed up leftovers for us when we were leaving. Such a lovely afternoon and fabulous value for money .
Thank you for making our New Years Day afternoon tea such a lovely occasion particularly for such a large group. Will definitely be back.
Had booked for 13 people but there were some cancellations, and I didnt realise there were two tables set behind us. In the end was just one table. It was very busy and seemed to be one waitress on, so we were waiting quite a while for our order to be taken. When afternoon tea came it was delicious and defo would reccomend . Also nice piano music in background.
Thank you for making our daughter's birthday so special. We had a truly wonderful time
Great ambience and wonderful staff. The location is superb and our timing was perfect, as it began to get quite noisy when young families arrived. Obviously the ‘adults only’ rule was suspended for Christmas but I didn’t see that mentioned anywhere.
Food and service was brilliant, is a little on the expensive side but well worth it.
The food was amazing and the service second to none. Will definitely be returning when back in Dublin!
Lovely dinner and attentive service without being too intrusive
Excellent service, food and surroundings
Enjoyable afternoon tea experience by the sea, food lovely and plenty of it, less savoury than sweet and menu not explained to us in advance but service good and piano music in the background made for an relaxed two hours
We had afternoon tea at Seaview and it was a truly enjoyable experience from the moment we walked through the door until we left. The staff are second to none, pleasant, helpful, make time for the customer and always on hand to help where needed. The ambience at the Seaview restaurant is lovely with beautiful views of the sea. The food was amazing, freshly made and plentiful Compliments to the chef for such a selection of great tastes. On leaving we received individual packs with a selection of the beautiful cakes that had not been eaten. Thank you all for a really lovely afternoon. Mary O'Reilly
service was slow and food just OK. Staff did not know much about the food when they brought it out. special requests were not listened to and had to be explained several times
Very few people in the restaurant when we visited. All staff were very friendly.
Menu nearly all fish, different alternatives would be appreciated considering people who have a fish allergy. Over priced and service was not good as when ordered coffee and water with our lunch it never arrived at our table.
Superb afternoon tea experience! Really well attended to in a relaxed atmosphere and fabulous views! Will return!
Our overall experience yesterday was great, the staff working in Seaview could not have been more helpful or accommodating. I've left one star off on service, as your telephone staff have let you down. I had four conversations, each time stated I wanted/had a booking for afternoon tea, the only slot available when I booked was for 12:45, we were running a few minutes late and upon arriving at almost 13:00, having been told to hurry as you had many bookings, we were informed that afternoon tea doesn't start until 14:30!!! The Seaview staff realised the inconvenience caused, and provided us with some complimentary prosecco for the error made, and allowed us to take a seat and relax for a while before being served afternoon tea shortly after 14:00. All in all, the staff were really accommodating once we arrived, the pianist began playing lovely music, and we got a table by window overlooking the sea, beach and golf course. No better view on a glorious day. Thank you.
