Fota House is Ireland’s finest example of Regency period architecture with superb neoclassical interiors. Discover the grand decor of the principal 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!

NEW for 2018- We are also open for weekends only in October, including the full bank holiday weekend. Guided tours at the usual times will be available and our friends from Bakestone will have their caravan on site, serving delicious treats and hot drinks outside in the autumn sunshine. (Please note, the inside café will be closed during this period.) The Fota shop and public toilets will be open in the House.
