what they're saying
"We were lucky enough to have our wedding reception at Longueville House. We wanted a relaxed and personal feel to our day and Aisling along with her Longueville team really delivered. We organised our wedding from the UK and throughout the process I was secure in the knowledge that Aisling was just a phone call away. The team at Longueville really removed the effort and stress of wedding planning, from babysitting & additional accommodation recommendations, to transport logistics, hair and make up, entertainment plus coordination on the finer details of the day with our best man and bridesmaid. From the moment we arrived at our reception, the staff went above and beyond. Everyone was welcomed, catered to and made feel very relaxed.
We held our speeches from the front door steps just before dinner - which went down wonderfully - would highly recommend it ..weather permitting! The grounds are out of this world and our photographer was blown away by the options and opportunities.
The wedding dinner was phenomenal with generous servings of faultless food beautifully paired with wines. The atmosphere was incredible! The evening went off without a hitch. Our band were set up and ready to play downstairs as soon as we finished dinner. We booked exclusive use of the house which was brilliant. The Drawing room provided a perfect respite for sore feet!
The feedback from our guests echoed our sentiments - Longueville is such a special venue. Nobody can put their finger on it but Aisling managed to make the entire day 'us'. We wouldn't change a thing and can't wait for our next visit!

"We had our wedding in Longueville House in September 2017 and it was absolutely wonderful. We had visited numerous times over the course of our planning and each time it just got better and better. We had hoped that the day would be really special and to say our expectations were surpassed would be an understatement!
The incrediable staff went above and beyond to cater to us and every single one of our Guests. They were so attentive and professional, not only on the day but also during the run up to the wedding. Every time we arrived we were given such a warm welcome. Our wedding would have not have been as fantastic as it was only for them and we are so grateful.
The house, grounds and food were all spectacular; from relaxing in the Drawing room with a cocktail for our drinks reception, to enjoying a delicious meal in the exquisite Turner Conservatory and partying the night away in the Cellar Kitchen downstairs, our Guests were completely blown away and are still raving about it. Longueville truly is a venue with a difference that offers so much, and we had the most relaxed, happy and intimate day.
A special thank you to Aisling who took every request on board without hesitation and made the process for us so enjoyable. Longueville will forever have a special place in our hearts. We can't wait to returnand will do so for many many years to come"

"We had the most wonderful wedding weekend in Longueville House. The venue was perfect and the food was fantastic. All of our guests had an absolute ball and we have been told by many family and friends that it was one of the nicest venues they had ever been to. It was a real treat to be able to combine the grandeur of the conservatory with the party atmosphere of the basement party area after dinner.
From start to finish Aisling and Debbie couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. The whole experience was seamless. This is the place if you are looking for a wedding venue with a personal touch and a mouth-watering menu. If only we could do it all over again. We are already looking forward to returning to Longueville to celebrate our first wedding anniversary!"

"We had the pleasure of getting married at Longueville House in October 2016, having a civil ceremony in The Presidents' Room followed by our reception. From the start Aisling & the whole team could not have been more helpful. They were so accommodating & made the whole experience magical. Everyone who attended commented on how wonderful & welcoming everyone was..."
"Everyone is still reeling from the wedding and Longueville and how absolutely wonderful everything and everyone was. I think we will be talking about it for all eternity. It was the most wonderful weekend of all our lives and we cannot thank you all more for everything you did for us to make it more perfect than we could ever imagine it to be. After our three years of searching for our perfect wedding venue, we sure did find it, and then some in Longueville, so worth the wait. Already thinking of when we can come back asap for a visit, we are missing Longueville already"

"It was a great day and we both enjoyed Longueville so much.
It was the perfect venue for our wedding, and although we had a lot of sceptical guests who wouldn't be used to something a bit different, each and every guest told us that the venue was by far the nicest place they've ever been for a wedding. It was difficult for people to leave the next day, as evidenced by my parents and aunt & uncle who stayed on for hours having lunch and enjoying the gardens. The house really added so much to the day - from the perfect location for our photo in the walled garden and against all the raw brick to the puppies who followed us around during the photos,and made the day of my cousins, whose kids got to play with the puppies and were over joyed! It surpassed everyone's expectations, so Thank You very much from all of us."

"A huge thank you to all the team at Longueville. I knew from the moment I laid eyes on Longueville from Australia that this was the wedding venue for us and the whole experience I had from our first meeting with Aisling to all the countless emails Emma so kindly replied to from me did not disappoint. In fact the whole experience from start to finish blew me out of the water! Aisling and William- you have such a hidden gem of a property, definitely one of Cork's best kept secrets. Having involvement of the owners on such a personal level is so warm and inviting and something unique that very few properties can offer, I really felt like Longueville was my own home for the weekend. The food is simply sublime and so mouthwatering, every guest praised it so highly and all want to come back for seconds!
Emma- thank you for your patience and attention to detail in assisting us plan our dream wedding, we couldn't have done this without your help. Your efficiency and love of what you do is second to none.
For the whole team- nothing we asked was an issue, everything was done with such professionalism and poise, in fact you thought of things that hadn't crossed our minds and actioned them without us even noticing in a smooth and seamless manner. The whole team made us and all our guests feel really welcome and that they enjoyed having us there. To them its not just a job they do but its a passion they have and a love for Longueville.
Personally addressing myself and Caleb made me feel like the real lady of House- Rupert, Gabor and Tomas are such gentlemen and go above and beyond in their service, even at 2am when we asked to keep the bar open longer!
Martina you such a shining star and gave us all a giggle- you have an answer for even the cheeky Kiwi's and we all enjoyed the banter from you- the endless pots of coffee you brought us were much appreciated.
I could go on and on for ever as I honestly don't think there are enough chocolates and ways to thank you enough for making our special day such a success.
We got some fantastic pictures of the property, stunning grounds and of course the cute dogs. Thanks so much."

"Now that we've returned and are adjusting to married life post-honeymoon, it's good to be able to write to you to thank you for facilitating our wonderful weekend wedding. Not a day has gone by that we haven't thought of, or talked about our wedding. It was truly the happiest, most joyous, and love-filled day of our lives.
We honestly can't thank you enough for looking after us so well that weekend. From the moment we arrived on the Friday afternoon, to our departure on Sunday, we felt really taken care of, and every last detail that we'd requested throughout the year was remembered and looked after.
There are certain moments that stand out vividly and we will always associate with that weekend. We both feel that the team at Longueville went above and beyond what we might ever have expected or hoped for, in terms of making this magic happen.
Longueville House will always be very special to us, because of the fact that we got married there. It felt like home for the whole weekend, and we really didn't want to leave.
We wish you continued success, and look forward so much to visiting again, meeting you all, and maybe having the time to take the gorgeous dogs for a walk!"
