Fota House Arboretum and Gardens, just a short car journey outside the city, is a real gem and a great place to bring your family.
Visitors cannot access the house at the moment due to Covid restrictions - however they can continue to enjoy the magnificent grounds - home to lots of rare trees and plants - from 9am to 5.30pm daily.
It even has an Italian Garden, as part of the Pleasure Gardens!
The Victorian Working Gardens is also now open from 10:30am - 2:45pm, Monday to Friday and 12 noon to 4:45pm at weekends. You can purchase plants here too!
