Newbridge House and Farm in Donabate, north County Dublin is a great place for a day trip. The demesne consists of approximately 370 acres of pastureland, woodland walks, traditional farm, a deer park, lime kiln, ruins of Lanistown Castle, watercourses, pleasure grounds and tea rooms. Newbridge Demesne is one of the finest complete 18th century parklands in Ireland. Centrepiece of the Demesne is Newbridge House, a Georgian Mansion. There is also a great playground for children, and plenty of car parking space. You can buy tickets to visit the farm on its own or the house on its own or get a combo ticket to visit both.
