Fabulous Fun at Fota House this St. Patrick’s Weekend!
Fota House is delighted to announce a full schedule for St. Patrick’s Weekend.
The weekend kicks off at 7:30PM on Thursday 14 th March with a traditional Irish gig by Torcán, a Trad Fusion band formed by All-Ireland multi-medallist, Jason Turk. Joined by his brother Robin, Seán Murphy and Brian Leach, these talented musicians create a rich and complex sound from the piano accordion, whistle, saxophone, fiddle, bazouki, electric bass and guitar. Special guest Karl Nesbitt on bodhrán joins them for their Fota House debut.
Tickets cost €20 including free parking and complimentary glass of wine.
Our bilingual self-guided family garden trail Patrick’s Trail / Slí Phádraig runs from Saturday 16th to Monday 18 th March. Follow the map, solve the clues and collect your treat back at the House. Spend a day outdoors with your family, taking in the spring sunshine – wellies an raincoats are a happy choice!
Our trail is open throughout the bank holiday weekend 10:30 – 15:30 daily. No pre-booking is needed, just visit us at the House Welcome Desk and we will get you on your way. Child tickets are €5 (including certificate and treat!) and adults go FREE!
Bakestone at Fota House Café will be open all weekend, serving a new and exciting menu of delicious treats. All day parking is available at Fota for €3. Thank you for your support, your contribution helps care for Fota House for future generations to enjoy.
Our friends in the OPW care for the Arboretum and formal Gardens here at Fota and we thank them for their support in this event.
