Welcome to Donabate

Donabate is a small coastal town blessed with a beautiful sandy beach and the invaluable amenity of Newbridge House and Gardens.


Newbridge House

New horizons at Newbridge House and Farm

This Georgian mansion was built in the 18th century for Charles Cobbe, Archbishop of Dublin, and remained in the Cobbe family for two centuries until 1985.

It is now a public park, playground and model farm.

The park is very popular all year round for recreational activities, and also contains playing pitches used by local sports clubs.
