Newbridge Demesne in Donabate launches new historic park tour

As if there wasn’t already enough to do at the beautiful Newbridge House and Farm in Donabate, the park has now launched a new tour.

Newbridge House and Farm are delighted to launch historic tours of Newbridge Demesne Park where the splendid stately home of Donabate is located.

Newbridge is Fingal’s largest park and has been beautifully maintained by Fingal County Council since its acquisition in 1985.

Designed in the 1770s in a naturalistic style, Newbridge Park remains relatively unchanged, making it one of the best preserved 18th century landscapes in Ireland.

The words of a visitor in 1801 still ring true today when he wrote that Newbridge Demesne is “delightfully situated” and “elegantly planted with a variety of woodland and other ornamental trees, in the highest state of presentation “.

Get outside on this guided walking tour and explore the historic landscape of Newbridge on the new Parkland Tour.

Tracing three centuries, this tour will cover Brownian design, flora and fauna, and the stories of how our ancestors lived, worked and played outdoors.

Tours take place at 11am every Saturday and Sunday from April to September and last approximately one hour.

Tickets for the new visit are available online and at reception. For private group reservations contact: [email protected]
