newbridge demesne

hmmm 😉 there you are Ray… Apart from that, there is absolutely nothing I dislike about the park named Newbridge House nee Newbridge Demense, as it is far more than that.

It is a true gem and I love it so very much. It contains the formal and the informal. It contains the grand house and the relevant farmyard, yet – it also has the most amazing childrens playground, barbeque and picnic areas. But it retains its history and it does it very well.

The tour of the house and farm I have done so many times. The coffee shop does real coffee. If you are looking for a recession buster – this is it! I went last weekend. I brought my flask [of fresh ground coffee] and a picnic. The weather wasn’t great but the grounds looked magnificient.

    It is so much nicer than all the other public stately homes in the Dublin. The grounds are fabulous. The only pictures your missing out on is the wooded alleyways at the back of the house along the Turvey road. They’re a bit scary but mysterious.
