Seaview House Hotel

A warm welcome and personal supervision are the hallmarks of Kathleen O’Sullivan’s restful country house hotel close to Ballylickey Bridge.


Spacious and well-proportioned public rooms include a graciously decorated drawing room and a cocktail bar - both overlooking lovely gardens at the front of the house, and with outdoor seating for fine weather - also a cosy library and television room.


Rooms vary, as is the way with old houses, and the most luxurious accommodation is in junior suites in a new wing; but many rooms have sea views, all are generously sized and individually decorated (six have recently been refurbished) and most have good bathrooms.


Family furniture and antiques enhance the hotel, and standards of maintenance and housekeeping are consistently outstanding.


Small conferences/banqueting (20/75). Children welcome (under 4s free in parents room, cot available free of charge, baby sitting arranged). Pets permitted in some areas by arrangement (stay in bedroom). Garden.


Rooms 25 (6 junior suites, 2 family rooms, 5 ground floor rooms, 1 shower only, 2 for disabled, all no smoking). No lift. B&B €65 pps, ss €35.


Restaurant:


Overlooking the garden, with views over Bantry Bay, the restaurant is elegant and well-appointed with antiques, fresh flowers and plenty of privacy.


Five-course dinner menus (with an option to have two or three courses if preferred) change daily and offer a wide choice on all courses; the style is country house cooking, with the emphasis firmly on local produce, especially seafood, in dishes like simple fresh Bantry Bay crab salad with Marie Rose sauce, or meats such as roast rack of lamb with rosemary.


Choose from classic desserts or local cheeses to finish and then tea or coffee and petits fours may be served out of doors on fine summer evenings.


A carefully selected and informative, wine list offers an extensive range of well chosen house wines, a generous choice of half bottles - and many treats.


Service, as elsewhere in the hotel, is always caring and professional.

Seats 50; children welcome (high chair, childrens menu, baby changing facilities); toilets wheelchair accessible. D 7-10pm daily, set D €30-45. House wines from €22. 10% sc. Hotel closed mid Nov-mid Mar. Amex, MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
