Savour the views on Donabate's coast
Donabate is a small coastal town blessed with a beautiful sandy beach and the invaluable amenity of Newbridge House and Gardens.
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.
Donabate Beach is a notable surfer’s spot, and a great location for walking and canoeing.
From the beach there are beautiful views of Lambay Island, Howth Peninsula and Malahide Estuary.
It’s easily accessible from the M50 and M1 motorways and has a car park and toilet facilities.
