In answer to your initial question, there are no major events planned at this stage, however, as I am sure you can appreciate, this may be subject to Change.

As regards travelling and sightseeing, there is plenty to see in Cork, especially in West Cork, and would highly recommend renting a car and enjoying some of these areas - we can provide further information to you closer to the time and help you put together a list of things you may like to see.

Finally, Parking in the City Centre is extremely easy, so there would be no forseeable problems in taking a car in - though you may like to consider taking the train, as traffic in and out of the city can be fairly arduous!

I hope that you decide to come to Fota next summer, if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to let me know. Also, once you have booked, please forward me your reservation details so I can oversee your arrangements and ensure you are well looked after!

Warm Regards,


thank you so much for the "olive branch". I will PM you with some further questions and details of our reservation. When do reservations open - 330 days out? ie - for Jul 07 I should be looking at reserving in Aug 06?
