Newbridge House & Farm
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.
We do special events all year round too, especially at Christmas, Halloween and Easter.
