I'd been meaning to make a trip to Longueville House for a while ever since I heard about it at an event that showcased their delicious brandy and cider products. I'm so glad to have finally made the journey. Everything about Longueville is gorgeous...the setting, the accommodations, the farm-to-fork food and drink, and the staff and owners. Liz's dietary needs were looked after really well, every server was really friendly, the evening meal was delicious. Liz commented that the breakfast was the best we've had of anywhere we've stayed. We look forward to returning soon.
We were a small family group (11 of us) getting together for a big birthday celebration. From start to finish we were really happy with every aspect of our stay. We dined in a small private room which was perfect. The service as always was attentive, helpful and professional. We enjoyed drinks before and after our meal in the lovely drawing room. We all slept very well because the beds are so comfortable and the hotel is in such a peaceful location. Breakfast was superb, followed by a relaxing walk around the grounds, where we enjoyed seeing a very happy family of pigs and met the friendly hotel dogs. Overall, it was a very memorable and delightful stay. We couldn't have been happier.
We stayed at Longueville House on our honeymoon 35 years ago and fell in love with this beautiful Georgian manor house. Its owners and staff were warm and gracious, and every bite of our breakfasts and dinners was delicious. We’ve cherished our special memories of that lovely time and place and hoped to return some day. Earlier this month, we returned to Longueville House at last. We were somewhat apprehensive that it would no longer be as wonderful as we remembered and that its luster could not live up to our cherished memories. However, when we arrived after many hours of traveling, we were warmly welcomed into a still beautiful Longueville House by Eveanne, who graciously took us to our stunning room and then ordered a pot of tea and mouthwatering scones to be brought up to us. In addition to managing Longueville House, Eveanne also seems to be the resident “fairy godmother.” After she grants the wishes of guests, she disappears to continue helping everything run smoothly. That evening we found that the cuisine in the Presidents Dining Room is as fabulous as it was in 1984. The next morning Berenice welcomed us into the Breakfast Room, showed us the array of breakfast items on the buffet table, and then took our order for a hot breakfast. During our stay, she always had a warm smile for us and was eager to assure that we had everything we needed and wanted for breakfast. The “frosting on the cake” of our return to Longueville House was seeing the owner, Jane O’Callaghan, again. She came by our table at breakfast to welcome us and then sat down and visited with us for a few minutes. She is as lovely, charming, and gracious as she was when we met her in 1984. A huge thank you to everyone at Longueville House who made our return so very PERFECT!
My husband and our great friends have just enjoyed a two night stay in this wonderful place. Where to start: accommodation is a large manor house, lovely rooms,lush furnishings, very comfortable beds. Set in 500 acres, organic vegetable gardens, own pigs and bees, making delicious food, honey and preserves, acres of orchards and their 100% natural cider and apple brandy 👍👍. And above all this, the genuine welcome and service was an exemplary Irish céad míle fáilte. Highlights include Mrs O’Callaghan’s jolly welcome, Bernice’s thoughtful service and William’s special veggie breakfast surprise, Hamish’s knowledge of wines and whiskey, Anthony’s sharing his organic gardening tips and a very informative and engaging tour of the orchards and distillery with Rupert. They are doing their bit for the environment, rewilding the estate and it was heartening to see lots of butterflies in the garden. Overall a relaxing and replenishing stay. We traveled by train from Dublin., easy!!!! Thanks to all the family and staff ❤️ We’re planning a return for a foraging event in October... can’t wait!
Ok, so its lovely here for a special occasion but i'm sorry to say the meal choice was poor and the meal was a let down. The Courgette Starter was bland & i struggled to pick from mains - lamb came out pink & while that was our fault for not requesting it well done, we sent it back but it still came back pink. The waiter/host was a lovely young guy & they do try to make it special but seriously guys stop trying to be so precious.
Quiet private area. Host family very welcoming. Rooms lovely and each unique but lacking modern amenities (TV, coffee maker) Wonderful farm to table dinner at the restaurant. Would recommend for quiet getaway, romantic weekend or wedding event. Great hard apple cider produced on site.
Longueville House is a world unto itself. A fabulous one. The family/owners and staff are perfect hosts at an incredible step back in time. When we arrived the meat for our dinner was roasting in front of the living room fireplace. And what a dinner it was. Totally field to fork. Definitely not to be missed.
This beautiful hotel is in the country. It has 12 or so rooms. The rooms are very spacious and nicely decorated. Our room had the area with the bed and then a large bathroom and another room for hanging clothes etc. This area was about 4 steps down from the bed area. The grounds were acres of gardens with many vegetables as well as an apple orchard. The owner was in charge of all these activities as well as a chef. He cooked our breakfast plus had dinner in dining room. Everything was outstanding. Very peaceful area.
My husband and I stayed here many years ago and enjoyed the experience then. We were not disappointed, it is still an elegant house, decorated and furnished for its period. We had a warm welcome and as we were early were given coffee in the drawing room while the receptionist checked that our room was ready. Our room was excellent with views over the valley, we had a separate dressing/wardrobe area and there were bath robes hanging there, should we want them. We were able to walk around the grounds and much to my delight the dogs greeted us outside the front door. Our evening meal was beautifully cooked and presented. It was served by a delightful waiter who was concerned that we had everything we needed. Breakfast was a feast, if you wanted to eat it all. The buffet had a lovely selection of fruits, in various ways. Rhubarb, gooseberries, apricots, prunes, bananas etc. As well as cold ham, on the bone, and cheeses. Then came the hot breakfast of bacon, sausage etc. The lady of the house talked to all the guests in the evening and then again in the morning. She very generously told us to take enough of the ham and bread to make ourselves a ham sandwich on our journey. She then brought a map and wrote directions for us. A very gentle and pleasant lady.
Went to Longville for a Sunday lunch recently. I wasn't impressed with either the food or the service. In particular, though, they asked me when I was making the booking if any of the guests had any allergies. I said they did and the hotel subsequently confirmed this by email. When we arrived not only did they serve the allergen but the waitress didn't know which dishes contained it. Pretty rubbish in this day and age.
