Originally set up as a cutlery manufacturing company in 1934, Newbridge Silverware today offers a unique tourism experience at its Visitor Centre in Newbridge, Co. Kildare. With one of the world’s greatest collections of authentic couture style, Hollywood glamour, music memorabilia and other artefacts, the Museum of Style Icons is a treasure that has to be seen to be believed. Highlights of the collection include one of the greatest private collections of Audrey Hepburn garments in the world, two very famous outfits worn by Princess Grace of Monaco, Marilyn Monroe paper and garments, stage worn ensembles by Michael Jackson, plus much more.
From summer 2018, the Newbridge Silverware Factory will also open to tourists for the first time ever. Guests will be transported behind the scenes and immersed in the history and craft aspects of the business.
Located just 45 minutes from Dublin airport and five minutes from the M7 motorway, there is ample free car and coach parking onsite. Shop the full collection plus eat at the award winning Café Carleton, which serves food from 9am until 4.30pm daily. Admission prices to the Museum of Style Icons from €5 and Guided Factory Tour tickets from €10. See www.newbridgesilverware.com/tickets
