  • The house is pretty but not so impressive from the outside. The inside makes up for it. Our guide was amazing and very entertaining and it was fascinating to see the beautiful "upstairs" rooms and hear the details of how things worked "below stairs". The gardens are also worth a stroll and we had a lovely lunch in the café.
  • We just had a brilliant tour of FOTA House. My husband and our 5 and 8 year old daughters. It was one of the best historical house tours I have been on. We got to see lots of rooms both the gentry and servants quarters along with kitchens, scullery, wet house etc. Much more than other house tours we have been on before. Gave us a real feel of life when the house was at is height of activity. Our tour guide Marian was a wealth of information and made it enjoyable for the adults and kids alike. Would definitely recommend. Much much better than I had expected!
  • The tour of the house is marvellous, our guide was very knowledgeable and thorough. Can gladly recommend!
  • Beautiful gardens with load of variety. Especially romantic in summer times. Nice little cafe in the house with reasonable prices.
  • Beautiful gardens at any time of year. Coffee shop is lovely, but cash only. Make sure you have €3 in coins for the car park.
