About: Fota House, Arboretum & Gardens

Fota House, Arboretum & Gardens is famous for its magnificent Regency-period house, beautiful formal gardens, and world-renowned arboretum. It is located 12 km east of Cork City on the northern shore of Cork Harbour, adjacent to Cobh.

Fota House was built by the Smith-Barry family and was redesigned by John "The Magnificent" Smith-Barry in the 1820s. Today you can hear Fota's legendary stories for yourself with guided tours led by a team of volunteers whose passion for heritage is contagious!

Guides will show you the grand principle rooms with their exquisite decor. Visit the service wing, where you can experience what life was like for the cooks, butlers, footmen and maids who supported the lavish lifestyles of the gentry. After your tour explore the arboretum where you will discover a host of rare and majestic trees.
