Accessible Fota

We welcome all visitors to Fota House, Arboretum & Gardens. The principle rooms and the Service Wing are fully accessible. We regret that access to the first floor is restricted. However, we have information on these rooms in a folder at the welcome desk.

Access to the arboretum is through an entrance beside the house and the path surfaces are fine gravel – please ask us for directions at the Welcome Desk. Our café is fully accessible and there is an adapted toilet on the ground floor of the house.

Assistance dogs are welcome in the house, grounds, shop and café. During café opening hours water is provided for visiting dogs.

If you would like to discuss your particular needs please call our Visitor Services team on 021 481 5543. We would be grateful if you could contact us in advance so that we can plan your visit with you.
