Newbridge House and Farm, County Dublin
Situated in North County Dublin, Newbridge House is a fine Georgian house set in a 360 acre demesne, which is one of Fingal's Regional Parks. Built by the Archbishop Cobbe between 1747 and 1752 and designed by architect James Gibbs, Newbridge House is a rarity in itself due to the fact that it still contains most of its original furnishings. From the Red Drawing Room (one of Ireland’s finest Georgian interiors) to the Museum of Curiosities (one of the few family museums in Ireland or Britain) and the ornate plasterwork throughout the house, you will be amazing by grandeur of this excellently preserved building.
On the site you’ll also find Newbridge Farm. Entering the farm thought its 18th Century cobbled courtyard you will see a whole plethora of animas from Shetland and Connemara ponies to piglets, goats and baby chicks. This is one of the few working farms in Ireland where you can see pigs and many other animals reared in an environment where they can move about freely and express normal patterns of behaviour. Every year the farm sees over 100,000 visits and has also proved very popular with families. Newbridge Farm is very committed to the highest standards of animal welfare and to the preservation of many Irish and indeed rare breeds.
When you want to take a break, give the Peacock Tearoom a visit or venture out into Newbridge Demesne and enjoy one of its many woodland walks, the ruins of Lanistown Castle and a whole host of other amenities and attractions.
