Visitors on the 45 minute guided tour will move through the working factory floor and meet some of the crafts people behind the coveted collections. Newbridge Silverware, originally Newbridge Cutlery, was established in 1934 and is one of Ireland’s oldest surviving companies. Some of the team have been there for three generations.

The collection has grown to include garments, letters, design drawings and original prints that once belonged to the most iconic women and men in the world.
