Who We Are

The Seaview Tavern was known as Barney Grant’s before being purchased by William Matthew and Vera Doherty (Doc) in 1973. Sadly Willie died in August 2000 and Vera in July 2004.

The original thatched-roofed pub has seen many changes. Willie and Vera’s son and daughter-in-law, Michael and Caitriona, are presently improving the premises. They now boast a full A-La-Carte Restaurant menu, and the business gained the distinction of being both Dining pub and Restaurant of the year 2001. Bar food and Lunch specials are served daily with the emphasis on local produce including fresh seafood from the local pier. Mussels, oysters, crab and salmon are just some of the succulent seafoods available throughout most of the year.

Michael and Caitriona spent 12 years in New York where Caitriona worked in a restaurant. It was from the experience gained there that The Seaview is able to boast of having probably the finest steaks and seafood in this part of the world. Some of the Tavern’s biggest praise of our food have come from the Head Manager of one of Jury’s Hotels and the Head chef of Johnny Fox’s.
