A fine, elegant room which links The Turner Room and The Library, with centre point Adams marble fireplace depicting Neptune, seats a maximum of 30 Guests at two long tables. (It is named after the family collection of specially commissioned portraits of Ireland's past Presidents which hang in The Presidents' Gallery behind our Drawing Room. Some of these past Presidents still visit us today).
The room is stylishly decorated in soft shades of taupes and toffees on the walls and fabrics, with tall Georgian windows and a southern aspect make it bright, airy and warm.
Our Library seats 14 Guests at one large table or two narrower tables of eight Guests. It's located next to The Presidents' Room and is beautifully decorated in tones of heritage green, with black Kilkenny marble fireplace, gilt mirrors, two specially commissioned Mahagony book cases housing hundreds of books, oil portraits of historical characters and pretty china plateware on the walls. This makes it a much sought after private dining space and a favourite of the O'Callaghan family too.
At the heart of Longueville is Williams cooking, with a home grown menu, offering the freshest produce from our walled garden and farm. Chef/Proprietor William at the centre of this field-to-fork ethos, is the driving force behind its working farm, extensive gardens and distillery, ensuring all this precious produce comes to the table.
Longueville House offers pared back charm, in an unpretentious environment and welcomes residential group gatherings for lunch and dinner, accommodating corporate and small group gatherings very well. We offer two dining spaces for private dining catering for up to 30 guests at one sitting. We can accommodate 40 guests at one sitting where The Courtyard Mews has been booked by group also.
Our two dining areas are connected - The Presidents' Room and The Library.
