Fota House is open from March to September from 10am to 5pm Monday to Sunday, including Bank Holidays. Our restored Victorian Working Garden is open Monday to Friday 10.30am to 3pm and some Sundays from 1pm to 4pm.
NEW for 2018– We are now open for weekends only until Christmas. 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.
House tours commence at 12:30 every day and the last tour departs at 3.30pm from March to September and weekends in October as outlined above. We kindly ask that visitors arrive at the Welcome Desk at least 10 minutes ahead of the tour time. During peak season, we recommend that visitors make a booking by telephone 021- 481 5543 to ensure they have a place for their tour.
