Fota House Café

The Café at Fota House is the perfect spot to relax with a coffee after your tour or walk in the Arboretum & Gardens

After exploring the gardens or taking a tour of Fota House, take time for coffee and cake at our friendly Café. Have a snack and conversation with friends after a winter woodland walk or dine outside to enjoy views across our gardens on a fine day!

Enjoy a coffee or Barry’s tea (of course!). And everything from our freshly made cakes, scones and sandwiches are prepared with wonderful fresh produce and local artisan ingredients, drawn where possible from the Victorian Working Garden.


The Fota House Café is fully wheelchair accessible, and there is an adapted toilet on the ground floor of the house.

Café Opening Hours

The Café is open 7 days per week from 10:30am to 5:00pm from April to September and at the weekends in October 10:30am to 5:00pm
