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 is 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. The fact is that Longueville has been self sufficient for a very long time - way before it became the trend.
William trained under Master Chef Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, a two-star Michelin restaurant where the menu is described as having ‘a twist of imaginative genius’. William has brought that twist without any pretension or stuffiness to Ireland’s south-western corner. He's blessed to have meat and game from the estate's farm - Longueville reared woodland pork and lamb, wild woodcock and snipe, fresh salmon from the Blackwater River, Longueville orchard bee hive honey, vegetables, fruits, herbs and oriental greens come from the three-acre walled kitchen garden and poly tunnels on the estate. Even our water is drawn from our own wells making Longueville a one-stop shop for all things artisan.
