Fota House is a Regency property run by the Irish Heritage Trust. The House offers visitors an intimate look at how life was lived in the past, whether as a servant or as a member of the gentry. Our painting collection is considered to be one of the finest collections of landscape painting outside the National Gallery of Ireland. We regularly hold musical and other events including family events so keep an eye on our website:

The Fota house team is supported by a dedicated group of volunteers and we are always on the look-out for new members.
