Dublin’s best family day out is back. And best of all it’s free entry!

If you haven’t yet been to this spectacular event then get yourself to Newbridge House

and Farm on the 24th and 25th June this summer. Set on over 40 acres the show is immense, complete with 6 distinct entertainment zones combining the sights and sounds of a traditional agricultural show with an unforgettable food and family fun experience.

Just a stone’s throw from city life, the two day event offers real value for money, unbeatable food and the ultimate farming experience for the whole family to enjoy! The action packed event will again host a mix of foodie and farming attractions including; food stalls boasting locally produced delicacies, craft and cooking demos, ‘Babe’ style sheepdog trials and a diverse range of livestock and equestrian competitions and displays. This year we even have sheep racing!

Flavours of Fingal County Show is a youngster’s delight with bouncy castle galore, the Big Dig and the Wild Air Run (for the mammies and daddies also!). There’ll also be music, magicians, street entertainers, face painting, and a huge range of arts & crafts activities planned over the weekend event. The beautiful Victorian Walled Garden will be resplendent with Fingal Food stalls while out in front of the stunning Georgian house we’re taking you back in the Vintage Arena depicting re-enactments from the Great Irish War, Vikings and even a spot of jousting!

Just off the M1, only 10 minutes from the M50, there’s direct pedestrian access from

Donabate train station and bike parking facilities, there’s no excuse for not getting to this year’s Flavours. Plan your day trip to experience country living at its very best.
