I stayed with my husband recently at Longueville for wedding celebrations and what a happy and enjoyable experience it was . We were staying overnight and arrived earlier than expected, the bedroom was only just vacated by the previous guests. However the staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating and had every comfort including a cup of tea ready for us within minutes. Celebrations began at 1 pm and the best of fresh food and wine flowed from then until midnight. Most memorable was the seated and table served dinner with BBQed wild boar as main course. The boar, apparently, roamed wild in the woods of the estate. Our table was in the romantically decorated old conservatory and we could not help wondering how the staff managed to serve so many seated people over a number of rooms so efficiently and pleasantly. One of our friends did not want the sauce that was served with the meat and within a minute a sauceless serving was smilingly presented. Those lucky enough to stay overnight rolled down to a proper Irish breakfast next day with every single item home produced and made, and where all the chat was about the harvesting of the apples to make Longueville Cider. Unfortunately we had no time to join the visitation to the orchard to see this process. As I said we left with very happy memories and carrying pots of the chef William's jams and special spice mixes.

Everything was home made and done and grown on the premises even the wine. I will never forget this dinner.

We ate Sunday lunch at Longueville House, so I am not able to comment on an overnight stay.
We were seated & greeted with menus & a drink in a beautiful drawing room, where our order was taken.
We were shown to our table & invited to select appetisers from the buffet table. They were in fact served to us by chef who explained every dish & was enthusiastic for us to try a little bit of everything. It was all delicious, as was the main course.
Dessert was the same style as starters - a buffet table to help yourself to perfectly formed dinky sized puddings. Perfect for when you want to try a bit of everything!
After lunch we tried a bottle of their own cider in the bar, before taking a walk around the garden.
It's the type of place you could stay all day - very friendly & relaxed, no rush & the staff are genuinely keen for you to enjoy your time there.
I would love to experience an overnight stay but it's less than 10 miles from home! We'll definitely be going back for Sunday lunch again.

We were spending the night here, away from town, so it seemed logical to try the dinner menu, even though the cost of a meal with wine can equal the cost of the room. We had a wonderful meal with impeccable service in magnificent 18th Century surroundings, with drinks in the drawing room before a roaring fireplace beforehand. There is a decent wine selection and the food is first rate. We highly recommend it, and will do a separate review on the accommodations side.
