A BRIEF HISTORY
A vital part of the local community
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. The interiors, from the Red Drawing Room to the Cabinet of Curiousities, are remarkably complete and amongst the best preserved in Ireland.
Stunning artworks, personal possessions and original furnishings
Initially, Newbridge House was modestly decorated. This all changed when it was inherited by Thomas Cobbe and his glamorous wife, Lady Betty.
See the splendour of the upstairs rooms then explore the servants quarters while you imagine the hectic workload involved in running this ‘big house’!

Croquet champions and legendary parties
In the early 1900’s the croquet parties at Newbridge were legendary, with champions travelling from all over Ireland and England to compete against Cyril Corbally.
The croquet lawn at Newbridge was refurbished to international standards in 2016-17 by Fingal County Council and you may even see it in use on your visit!
