Hello all!

On behalf of Newbridge House I'd like to welcome you all to the Newbridge Heritage Festival taking place on the weekend of September 11th and 12th in Newbridge Demesne, Donabate, Co.Dublin. (

The theme of the event is 'Fingal through the ages', and as such we will be aiming to have displays covering various different historical periods in fingal right up to the mid C19th.

We are hoping for this to be an annual event and as such are planning to start off with a splash.

Currently the highlight of the show will be provided by the North Irish Dragoons ( who will be doing military displays, among other things, and will also have a camp consisting of an officers tent, kitchen, troopers tents and a blacksmiths forge, and hopefully an operating cannon!

There will also be several displays from the middle ages provided by the Newbridge Heritage Society, including an archery contest open to all re-enactors.

If you'd be interested in attenting the show as a participant/group or would like to put on your own display and/or set up a merchants stall etc please contact

Catering for groups can be provided, also a plastic tent area is available for those who wish to stay for the weekend.

More info coming soon (Updates will be posted in events section and here: ... 8&Itemid=6)

For further enquiries please leave a comment here or email

All the best!
