Newbridge House is a fine Georgian mansion built by Archbishop Charles Cobbe in 1736. The house remained with the Cobbe family for almost 250 years and is now owned by Fingal County Council. In a unique agreement the Cobbe Family has provided, on loan to the Council, the original furniture, pictures and other works of art on display in the ground floor rooms of the house.
An extensive programme of renovation, reconstruction and restoration of the house in 1986 has returned it to its 18th Century grandeur. The finest room in the house is the Red Drawing Room featuring a beautiful white marble chimney piece, original plaster ceiling, carpet, curtains, and wallpaper from the late 18th century. Other rooms open to the public include the Dining Room, Library, Sculpture Gallery and the Museum of Curiosities. The latter features many artifacts collected by the Cobbe Family on their travels throughout the world.
