A visit to FOTA!

Today, instead of  munching on what seems to be my only source of energy at the moment (chocolate), I spent the whole day in Fota! First I went to Fota Wildlife Park and had fun looking at all the animals. It's not a zoo so there's not many enclosures. That's the main reason why I love it there. Some animals get to wander wherever and whenever.
(but one bird didn't take well to my sister and sent her on a wild goose chase, but who can blame him)
Then I went on a guided tour at Fota House. This is a really big house that belonged to the SmithBarrys for the past few hundred years. It's really old and detailed. We were shown rooms like the watercolour room, library (but there was no books :(  ), Dorothy's room, butler's room, pantry....
But this wasn't the first time I'd been there. Last year I spent a good few days over the year at events because I designed an app called the Fota House Game app. I'm not sure if it will ever be produced but it was fun making and presenting it!
So if you are ever in Cork, do visit Fota for a day, it really is worth it!


  1. I absolutely love this post. I've been to Fota multiple of times, school tours and just out there in general. I haven't been there in a while, but your words have convinced me to go again!!xxxxxx


I solemnly swear to reply every time ^_^
