Dublin – Newbridge House and Farm

"Newbridge House and Farm"

Newbridge House and Farm

Newbridge House and Farm is Dublin’s best kept secret!

A hidden gem in rural Fingal, families can step back in time and enjoy art, furniture and stories of times past, as well as an outdoor adventure on our working farm.

Newbridge House

Newbridge House, Ireland’s only intact Georgian mansion and estate, is nestled among the wildflower meadows of Newbridge Demesne.

Newbridge is renowned across the world for its unique collection of Irish furniture, the Cobbe Collection of Old Master portraits and landscapes as well as family pictures, all of which can be seen on the tour. There is over 300 years of family history and all of the accompanying stories and anecdotes to be enjoyed too.

The tour guides will bring you through three centuries of Irish History; from the opulence of a Georgian house, to a Victorian family home, to rural life in the 20th century and the world of an Irish Country House today.

See the splendour of the upstairs rooms then explore the servants quarters while you imagine the hectic workload involved in running this ‘big house’!

Newbridge Farm

Newbridge Farm is one of the few examples of a traditional working farm. The farm is home to a vast array of animals ranging from the Shetland and Connemara ponies of the paddock, to the piglets, goats and chickens of the farmyard.

Join Kevin the Kid and his farmyard friends on the brand new Farmyard Discovery Trail! Pick up an interactive booklet at the Admissions Desk and use it to navigate your way around the farmyard and paddocks, completing challenges and learning lots on the way. Don’t forget to visit the ‘Mooternity Ward’ to meet the latest new arrivals to the farm!

Take a break to enjoy your lunch and have some fun at Penny’s Picnic and Play Area before meandering through the Walled Garden and orchard.

The team on Newbridge Farm are very committed  to the highest standards of animal welfare and to the protection of many traditional and rare breeds. This is one of the few working farms left where children can see animals reared in an environment where they can move about freely and express normal patterns of behaviour. The Newbridge team are proud to promote compassionate farming methods, respect for all animals and sustainable biodiversity.
