Harvest Lunch & Walled Garden Tour

01 - Monday 2 September 2019
Venue: Longueville House

To coincide with the annual harvest of their walled garden, Longueville House marks this special occasion by hosting a Harvest Lunch & Walled Garden walk, talk & taste tour. With the guidance of William O’Callaghan, owner, and Longueville’s Head Gardener, Anthony Hartnett, you will discover the pleasure and excitement of growing your own fruit & vegetables, followed by a stroll through our extensive orchards, cider mill and on-site brandy distillery.

After the tour, back in the House an autumnal cider cocktail will greet you in our drawing room. William and head Chef, James Cullinane, will prepare a special lunch which includes what is in season, freshly harvested and picked from our Walled Kitchen Garden and Estate all washed down with lashings of Longueville House Cider. A fun and educational day for all concerned.

Here’s what happens –


Participants meet at Longueville House, welcomed by freshly brewed tea and coffee in the drawing room, where you will see and smell the aromas of our traditional Sunday roast being cooked over the open oak log fire. A brief introduction to Guides and maps of the Longueville Estate orchards are distributed. Participants are encouraged to bring wellies or hiking boots and layered clothing for extra comfort. Group then sets off with guides for an educational talk and tour of our orchards, cider house and distillery.


The group returns to the House for a comfort break and to freshen up, followed by a welcome glass of seasonal house cider cocktail or homemade apple juice.


Served in Presidents’ Restaurant and Turner Conservatory, the highlight of the day is the legendary luncheon consisting of an extensive starter, dessert and cheese buffet with all ingredients sourced from Longueville House Gardens, Estate & local farmers. Your main course, the roast, which has been cooked on the open fire or the Castletownbere freshly caught fish will be served to you at your table. An imaginative vegetarian option is always available.
