A hidden gem in rural Fingal

Step back in time and enjoy art, furniture and stories of times past. From the gently undulating wild flower meadows of the Demesne to the stately grandeur of the Georgian Mansion, Newbridge truly is an experience for all ages in all seasons.

A Brief History

The house and its inhabitants have played a vital role in the local area for hundreds of years.

Built to the design of James Gibbs in 1747 for the then-Archbishop of Dublin, Charles Cobbe, the house has passed from generation to generation of the Cobbe family.


From stunning artworks to original furnishings, the collection at Newbridge House is unrivalled.

Initially, as Archbishop Charles Cobbe’s country retreat, Newbridge House was sparsely furnished and modestly decorated. This all changed when it was inherited by his son, Thomas, and his  glamourous wife, Lady Betty.
