Time between the Ceremony and Reception

The private coaches will pick up guests again on O'Donovan Road, at the rear of the Honan Chapel, following the ceremony, for return to the reception venue.  They will leave at 5:30pm sharp.

We request that guests who are driving proceed directly from the ceremony to the reception at Longueville House.  
We remind guests who are driving that this is 40 minutes away.

On arrival to Longueville House, you will find that the house and its beautiful and extensive grounds are open for our exclusive use.  The bride and groom will go to these grounds after the ceremony for photographs. If the weather is inclement, the house itself is a beautiful place to explore while the soft Irish rain falls outside and keeps everything emerald green.
