Primary School Tours

Unique school tours suitable for all primary school age groups

Newbridge House and Farm is the perfect spot to host your primary school tour. Over 300 years old, the Georgian mansion is full of secrets and stories which the dedicated tour guides are waiting to share with your class. The traditional farm offers an up-close encounter with pigs, goats, ducks, horses, donkeys, chicks and much more, including an interactive Farm Discovery Trail for younger visitors.

Engaging for a wide variety of age groups, our school tours include:

  • Free entry for one teacher per class
  • ​Ample free coach parking on-site
  • Lunch and snack breaks on open parkland
  • Free-play time at the on-site playground
  • Straightforward bookings with our dedicated reservations team

Just 15 minutes by coach from Newbridge House and Farm, the Fairy Trail and Butterfly House at Malahide Castle and Gardens are an ideal extra destination on your school tour.
