On the estate, guests can enjoy private salmon and brown fishing on the River Blackwater, falconry on the lawn, a range of cross country hikes, May dawn chorus Walks and October Mushroom Hunts.
Nearby, guests may pass the time horse riding, mountain biking and hiking. Longueville serves as a great base for exploring highlights of the region - Cork City, Blarney, Kenmare, Killarney, Dingle Peninsula and Ring of Kerry.
At the heart of Longueville is The Presidents’ Restaurant, with a menu offering the freshest produce and imaginative dishes from the gardens and farm, and the kitchen is supervised by internationally commended chef/patron William O’Callaghan. Almost all of the food is sourced within Longueville, prepared from scratch and cooked to order, a field to fork policy thus guaranteeing a unique and memorable dining experience.
Longueville is very proud of the fact that much of their meat and game is reared on their farm on site. William oversees the gardens and farm ensuring that ingredients such as free range woodland pork, spring lamb, woodcock, snipe, pheasant and duck come straight from the estate, depending on the season. Fresh River Salmon and Brown Trout are available again when in season, coming straight from The Blackwater River. All the vegetables, oriental greens, herbs and much of the summer and autumn fruit come from the three-acre walled kitchen garden and poly-tunnels on the east side of the house, carefully toiled by gardeners as well as an army of ducks that patrol the walled garden to keep the slugs at bay! The busy Longueville bees live in the orchards producing honey for the house and the hens lay fresh eggs daily. The fact is that Longueville House has been self-sufficient for a long time - way before it became the trend. All dietary requirements imaginatively catered to with a little notice.
In addition there is a 32 acre apple orchard from which a craft apple cider is produced, known simply as Longueville House Cider & Apple Brandy.
