Fota House

Interesting
Behind a façade of restrained, almost austere, elegance, Fota House has an impressive well-proportioned interior, as evident in the hallway with its faux- marble columns and perspectives. Similar attention to detail is apparent throughout: estate office, kitchens and larder are all models of propriety. In the park, note the lovely Victorian orangery and arboretum with species from North America, Chile, Japan, China...
