Situated in North County Dublin, this fine Georgian house is set in a 360 acre demesne, one of the finest and most complete eighteenth century landscapes in Ireland. Built by Archbishop Cobbe between 1747 and 1752 to the design of the renowned architect, James Gibbs. Newbridge is extremely rare in that it still contains most of it’s original furniture thanks to an arrangement with the Cobbe family. It offers many surprises. These include the magnificant Red Drawing Room (one of the finest Georgian interiors in Ireland), the Museum of Curiosities (one of the few family museums in Ireland or Britain) and the ornate plasterwork found throughout the house. Newbridge House is exceptionally unchanged, preserved for future generations thanks to a unique agreement with the Cobbe Family, who have provided on loan the original furniture, pictures and other works of art on display in the main rooms open to the public. The Red Drawing Room is one of the finest Irish Georgian interiors and is home to the best documented eighteenth century private art collection in the country. A private apartment is still maintained for the family continuing a line of occupancy unbroken since the mid 18th century.
