Discover the grand decor of the principle rooms and charming nursery, or the service wing with the beautifully preserved kitchens, where you can experience what life was like for the servants who supported the lavish lifestyle of the gentry.



Fota House is open from March until September from 10am - 5pm seven days a week.  Please contact the house for tour group bookings and school visits all year round on 021-4815543. In the meantime check out our busy calendar of events for the current season. There's always something to do at Fota!
