Newbridge House and Farm is multi faceted and ever changing.  From the gently undulating wild flower meadows of the Park to the stately grandeur of the Georgian Mansion, Newbridge Demesne truely is an experience for all ages and in all seasons.  Families adore the 18th century working Farm and state of the art Adventure Playground, rounding off their visit with homemade treats in the Courtyard Tearooms.  Enter the Farm via its 18th century cobbled courtyard and visit a vast array of animals ranging from the Shetland and Connemara ponies of the paddock, to the piglets, goats and baby chicks of the farmyard. We have over 100,000 visitors every ye ar and the Farm is very popular with families. We are one of the few working farms where children can see pigs, and many other animals, reared in an environment where they can move about freely and express normal patterns of behaviour. We are very committed to the highest standards of animal welfare and to the preservation of many Irish and indeed rare breeds

Nightmarish Booo-bridge House and Frightmare Farm!


Newbridge House and Farm Donabate, just five minutes drive from Dublin Airport, has a frightening family tour for all ages. The gorgeous Georgian house in darkness, its oil paintings softly illuminated by candlelight, takes the visitor closer to what life was like in the eerie eighteenth century. Suitable for all ages (the mothers are far more frightened than the children!) the Halloween visit includes a spooky tour through the ghostly main rooms then down to the Servants Quarters which have been taken over by local pirate Captain Jack the Bachelor and his creepy crew. The visit also includes access to Frightmare Farm and a ghoulish gift bag per paying child all for the usual price of only €14 for a family (2 + 2), €5 per adult and €4 per child/student/OAP(two years old or under are free, treats only suitable for 3+). The tour operates from Saturday 25th to Friday 31st of October 11am to last tour 3pm. Forged in Hell but conveniently located just off the M1 and only ten minutes from Dublin Airport, a visit to Newbridge House and Farm, free state of the art adventure playground and gorgeous Park is a great value full day out for all the family.
