  • Visited Fota House & Gardens today and have to say it surpassed all expectations. Not only were the house and gardens overwhelming splendid, but the tour guide, and every single staff members were so very welcoming. They were brilliant and added to the entire experience. For someone who loves the regency period, I felt like I'd stepped right back in time. Loved it and recommend 100%.
  • Really nice place for a short walk around the gardens and arboretum. Lots of spectacular plants and trees and red squirrels also. Free into the gardens but parking is 3 Euro. House visits and restaurant on site but only opened for visits during peak season. Venue function rooms are available for hire. Victorian gardens only open at the weekends.
