Afternoon Tea in Longueville House is an institution in itself and is served in The Drawing Room & Mount Hillary Room of Longueville House in front of a roaring log fire. Afternoon tea is all about relaxation or catching up with old friends and loved ones and makes for a memorable afternoon whiling away a few hours. We serve two afternoon tea menus: The Traditional Afternoon Tea Menu and The Celebration Afternoon Tea Menu. Both menus includes freshly cut sandwiches, freshly baked soda scones with garden berry preserve and Chantilly cream, followed by a delectable selection of afternoon tea cakes and pastries all served on a three tier stand. In addition The Celebration Afternoon Tea Menu comes with a glass of bubbly and a celebration cake. What a novel and civilised way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, engagement or just as a treat to yourself! This can also be followed by a walk in our gardens and grounds in nicer weather.
Due to the unique nature of The Celebration AfternoonTea, bookings are required two days minimum in advance. These menus are served from 2.00pm to 5.30pm Wednesday through Saturday subject to availability.

For special occasion private dining, Longuville House offers a variety of dining ambiances, with four different styled dining areas to choose from.
At Longueville Guests may savour the freshest produce from the estate and surrounding areas, in original culinary creations cooked by chef and patron William O'Callaghan and his team in this renowned kitchen.
William trained under Master Chef Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, a two-Michelin-star restaurant where the menu is described as having ‘a twist of imaginative genius’. William has brought that twist to Ireland’s south-western corner, with meat and game from the estate's farm such as woodland pork, Longueville lamb, woodcock, snipe, fresh salmon from the Blackwater River, Longueville bees honey, vegetables, fruits, herbs and oriental greens come from the three-acre walled kitchen garden on the estate. At Longueville guests can rest assured that they are getting the freshest ingredients with a menu that promotes a field to fork policy. In one word "Provenance". Even our water comes from our own wells. Only the extensive New and Old World wine list is drawn from farther afield.
We also offer imaginative alternatives to Vegetarians & Vegans and will happily accommodate with a little notice guests with special dietary requirements such as diabetics, gluten free diets and guests with food allergies.
