Newbridge House and Farm
This delightful 18th century manor is set on 350 acres of parkland, twelve miles north of the city centre and boasts one of the finest Georgian interiors in Ireland.
Each room open to the public has its own style of antique and original furniture - indeed the house appears more or less as it did 150 years ago.
The house was built in 1740 to a design by James Gibb for the Archbishop of Dublin and contains elaborate stucco plasterwork by Robert West. The period atmosphere of the house is further accentuated by the presence of a fully restored courtyard, surrounded by: a dairy, estate worker's house, carpenter's shop and a blacksmith's forge; all displaying nineteenth century tools and implements.
The grounds also contain a twenty-nine acre traditional farm, complete with farmyard animals, a delight to any young visitor and perfect for school tours and large groups.
