The highlight of our visit to Newbridge House was without a doubt our tour guide Michael. His demeanour was relaxed and welcoming and his knowledge on the house is thorough. We loved everything about the tour in this piece of history. Thank you Michael, you're amazing!

Long overdue return to Ireland kicked off with visit to Newbridge House, close to where we were staying with friends in Donabate. The car park was packed for a Monday but then someone explained that it was a public holiday. Despite the numbers of families and kids there was a really quiet and peaceful air which I really enjoyed, would happily have chilled in the gardens but the others wanted to see the farm animals. Really nice place and perfect for families with younger kids.

Review of the cafe here. It is expensive for sure. The staff are lovely and the food is pretty decent.

But is understaffed. No sign of anyone managing the place and the people there are overworked. Huge queue. If it was properly managed and staff there would be no issue with queues.

Very well ran, place was immaculate
BUT, Its daylight robbery. 30 euro to park your car. Queded for 45mins, Got 2 bags of chips, 2 pulled pork burgers and 2 drinks. Was charged 36 euro for the lot. That's not right at all. Ireland has become a scandle with people fleecing everyone. Organisers need to clamp down on this sort of robbery. 15 quid for that load of greesy crap would have been more than enough.

Flavours of Fingal’s back after Covid! 2022 a great success with free buss service for local pick up points over the three days . It took three days to see everything from dog shows , crafts , farm animals , circus acts , all sorts of dancing and music lots to buy and so many different things to eat and drink all on offer across Fingal! A great week end of family fun and sun . The farm open for all to see and the walled garden jumping with bean bags and music!

Had a lovely day in newbridge house and farm today. while most of the facilities were really good and clean it was unfortunately let down by the Si Cafe , it is ridiculously understaffed . The two staff were really lovely and helpful but could not keep up with the demands of all visitors , another example of greedy owners refusing to pay more staff it would appear! We had to que 35 minutes for service and wait another 45 for our food . The childrens food arrived but ours was delayed which delayed the visit to the farm for our children .

I highly recommend this place. I have done the playground and the farm before with my children (age 7 and 9). We did the house tour today and I highly recommend it. We had a lovely tour guide called Geraldine. She was very informative and was great with the children. Thanks Geraldine.

Plenty of parking spaces for the park,farm and Hotel. The kids playground is outside the farm so it's free if you don't visit the farm.

The farm is big as the animals are not all crushed into one place.

The only animals that you might pet is the small goats as there isn't a double fence round them like other animals.

2 adults and 2 kids 1 year old and 2 year old, have a great time.

Cheap to enter for the farm you see and animals you see compared to other farms about the North East of Ireland.
