The Gardener’s House at Fota is a significant part of the history of the property and had been lying derelict for a number of years. In 2017 we began to restore it thanks to generous support from the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. A new roof, render repairs, new and refurbished windows have resulted in a weathertight building that can now be further developed. There was sufficient funding to completely replace the stairs, repair internal walls and ceilings as well as providing power to every room.
With further financial assistance, we are excited about the potential to begin using this wonderful space for events, training, exhibitions and other activities.
