We are delighted to announce that our annual Fota House Plant & Garden Fair will now take place over two days on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of July from 11.00am to 4.00pm each day.  Originally fixed for April, but unfortunately postponed due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, the Fair is one of the highlights of the gardening calendar and is the largest Plant and Garden Fair outside the Dublin area. Holding the outdoor event over two days will allow visitors the safest environment possible to browse through the wide range of colourful stalls on show allowing for adequate social distancing. As organisers one of our foremost considerations is to provide a safe environment, a well-managed venue and ease of circulation for visitors.

Specialist nurseries from all over Ireland are joining us, giving visitors the opportunity to take home unusual and special plants. Selections include rare trees, shrubs, alpine, herbaceous and water plants at competitive prices and advice from the plant specialists comes at no extra charge! Shop in the summer sunshine for garden furniture, pots, sculptures, ornaments and tools, everything you need for the garden this year.

Admission only €8.00 including parking. Food stalls will be on site at the event, along with Bakestone Café serving up their usual treats in the main House. Visitors to the plant fair are also encouraged to take in a walk of the Gardens and Arboretum at Fota which are resplendent in colour during the summer months.

Don’t miss this event, it’s a must for all those with an interest in gardening!
