- A fine, elegant room which links with centre point Adams marble fireplace depicting Neptune, seats a maximum of 34 Guests at two long tables.

- The Chinese Room:
- Our Chinese Room stunningly and richly decorated in Golds and Royal Reds, seats 18 Guests at a large rectangular table.

This makes it a much sought after private dining space and a favourite of the O'Callaghan family too.

- Food, Restaurants, Cafes:
At the heart of Longueville is The Presidents' Restaurant with a home grown menu offering the freshest produce from our walled garden and farm.
Chef/Proprietor William O'Callaghan and right hand man James Cullinane are at the centre of this field-to-fork ethos here and is the driving force behind its working farm, extensive gardens and distillery, ensuring all this precious produce comes to the table.
In Longueville we are very proud of the fact that most of our precious produce hails from and lovingly grown in our three-acre Walled Kitchen Garden or foraged from the boundary hedgerows that surround our 450 acre estate. Seasonal vegetables, oriental greens, herbs and much of the summer and autumn fruit are grown here and in poly-tunnels on the east side of the house. Our walled kitchen garden truly is the beating heart of Longueville, worthwhile investigating and carefully toiled by a dedicated team of gardeners. There you may meet Head Gardener Anthony who will enthusiastically inform how our menu changes by the day depending on what he deems to be in excellent condition. What cannot be grown in our kitchen garden will be sourced within a 20-mile radius, and the beautiful Blackwater Valley has no shortage of local artisan suppliers. This is a truly genuine way of running our kitchen and centrepoint to our uncomplicated cooking ethos with emphasis squarely on fresh, clean flavours.
An army of ducks patrol the walled garden keeping the slugs at bay.
Busy Longueville bees live in the orchards producing honey for the house and free range hens lay fresh eggs daily.
Longueville House is and has been self-sufficient for a very long time - way before it became the trend.
There is also a 25-acre cider apple orchard from which two excellent craft apple ciders are produced - Longueville House Cider and Longueville House Cider Mor (aged in oak brandy casks). In addition, a double distillation Apple Brandy is made from some of this cider, known as Longueville House Apple Brandy, made in the Calvados style. These superior quality artisan beverage products are available in our bar and restaurant and for sale on site, nationwide and beyond. A new addition to this suite of beverages is our Longueville House Apple Cider Vinegar boasting so many health benefits.
Much of the meat and game served in our Restaurant, is reared on-site or shot locally. So free range woodland pork, spring lamb, woodcock, snipe, pheasant & duck come straight from the estate on to your plate when in season.
Fresh River Salmon and Brown Trout, caught in The Blackwater River flowing through the estate, are proudly displayed on Silver Trays and delicately cooked for our Guests to enjoy during the fishing season.
