Fota Island



The name Fota is derived from its Irish version meaning warm soil. Fota Island is host to Ireland’s only wildlife park, a must for all the kids, big and small where the sight of emerald green pastures being grazed by giraffes, outhouses (even if they are well secured) housing wild cats and of course, Monkey Island, as well as the historical Fota House with its ornamental gardens and an 18-hole golf course.


And when the squawking, chirping, roaring, stomping, gnashin n squealing (and that’s just the kids) gets too much for you, you can always find your own nest/burrow/hide/forrage at Fota Resort nearby.
