Fota House & Gardens
Long Business Description:

Fota House was designed by 19th century architects Richard and William Morrison. From the beautifully proportioned rooms with exquisite plasterwork, to the preserved service wing and kitchens, Fota House offers visitors an intimate look at how life was lived in the past, whether as a servant or as a member of the gentry. Our painting collection is considered to be one of the finest collections of landscape painting outside the National Gallery of Ireland and includes works by William Ashford PRHA, Robert Carver, Jonathan Fisher and Thomas Roberts.

Fota is surrounded by fine gardens and s splendid arboretum dating from the time the house was built.

You can also visit the fascinating award-winning Victorian Working Garden which has been brought back to life. This includes the beautiful orchard, pit houses and working glasshouses. It once supplied the house with fruit and vegetables and it is now buzzing with activity with volunteers propagating and growing produce and plants to support the property. The Victorian Working Garden is open Monday – Friday and most Sundays from March to September where you can wander about and take it all in. You can check the Sunday opening with our Welcome desk. Guided tours are available by arrangement.

Jameson Experience
Long Business Description:

For over 200 years we called Dublin home, but in 1975 we moved our ever expanding operation to the green expanses of Midleton, Co. Cork. The big move wasn’t without risk, but the migration certainly paid dividends in the whiskey making department. Our new home provided the space we needed to stretch our legs and our whiskey making ambitions, proximity to barley farmers and freshwater probably aren’t what people typically look for when house hunting, but Midleton seemed to have everything we need as well as the extra space for visitors.
