Would not racommend farm visit. Went today Sunday 18th. Booked tickets for 2.30. When we arrived to newbridge it was chaos, cars abandoned everywhere, people everywhere, the playground was rammed with adults and children. No social distancing whatsoever.
We went to get our tickets for the farm, which resulted in us queuing in a huge line where people did not understand the need for social distancing. When we entered the farm there was about 50 other people entering at the same time and still more to come after us. Whenever we went to see an animal we were crowded around by others, if we moved on to get some space we were constantly followed and crowded. This was happening the whole way. The courtyard with animals had no directions and was a free for all with very little space. There was no employees to manage crowds. We felt really unsafe and ended up rushing through the farm to get out. All of the hand sanitizing stands were empty with no sanitizer and the soap units by the sinks had no soap. Would not return and would not recommend.

Travelled a long way to visit the farm with family only to find it was closed, there was no notification of this on the website or FB page, I checked before and after and saw no information regarding such an important fact. A festival was being set up and large machinery was moving everywhere, even where we were walking with a small child trying to navigate our way through. It wasn’t safe and a notice should have been placed at the entrance. Only access was to a very limited and and expensive cafe where we had a cold drink and mulled over our disappointment and on how to salvage the day. No apology or explanation from staff.

I visited with two young children a couple of weeks ago. The visit was top class from start to finish. All members of staff we encountered were so friendly and so professional and had a great attitude towards the children. The highlight of the trip was our tour around Newbridge House. Both children on the trip had special needs, and can find it difficult to concentrate and stay still for long periods. Without even having to be asked our tour guide (an Italian man, I'm so sorry I can't remember his name) tailored the tour for our needs. He is an absolute credit to you, and deserves a special mention. I'm sorry that I cannot remember his name. The children still talk about our visit and said it was the highlight of all the summer trips over tayto park and the zoo. Food in the cafe was beautiful, and staff there were also extremely accommodating. Will definitely be recommending to family, friends and colleagues in school. Will definitely be returning again next summer!!

Been to Newbridge House many times and walked around the estate. But it is the first time (since COVID) where I was able to go around the farm properly. It was a great experience.

We asked Emma who was doing a birthday party if it was possible for our kids to hold an animal. She was doing the party so she wasn't able to do it at that time. She asked us to come to the reception at 3:15 and right on time she was there and let my kids hold a rabbit, a baby goat and gave us a small little tour ourselves.

Outstanding customer service by Emma, she didn't have to do any of that but she went above and beyond.

Thank you!

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.

We got the tour of Newbridge house today and it was fabulous! Tuan had an absolute mountain of knowledge regarding the history of it, there was nothing we asked he didn't know the answer to! For only 3.50 extra with the farm entrance, it's well worth it! Very interesting, takes about 45 mins in total, would definitely recommend this tour with Tuan to anyone!

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!

We visited Newbridge House this week. It was a great experience. We were two adults and a nine year old. We did a tour of the house with a guide called Tuan. He was interesting, very knowledgeable and engaging. Our nine year old was enthralled. The cafe had tasty food and the farm was a great place to let off steam after the house and cafe visit. Will definitely go again.

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 .

Myself and my husband took our 6 yr old here on Sunday, our booking was for 4:30. We toured the house first which was very interesting, the guide was informative and was great with the kids on the tour. My only complaint here is that myself and my family were the only ones wearing face masks, the tour guide did not wear one either. There was no queue into the farm at this time so we went straight in from the house tour. The farm is very well kept, the animals were beautiful and the gardens are amazing. If you go at this late time make sure to pack some refreshments as the coffee shop closes. I would definitely go back again, if they could improve on anything it would be to make sure the soap and sanitiser stations are regularly refilled as some of these were empty. But on the whole a great day out.
