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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
